Canon Powershot S330 Picture Brightness Help!!!

\015 I've owned and enjoyed this Canon Digital Elph for many years. The photo quality has always been very good for a 2 meg camera. I always use it in Auto mode. Now everytime I take a photo the picture is very bright or washed out?? I was told by a fellow owner to reset all settings to their default values, but this did not help. Can anyone please tell me if I'm doing something wrong or if I need to take it in for repair? Thanks very much. Ron\015

Answers :

When we take photo in a day outdoor it is very bright. And in dark it is cleare.so tell me the solution for this particular problem.
It sounds like the camera exposure system is out of whack and may need to be serviced. You may want to ensure that exposure compensation is set to 0. Check one of your overexposed images with the display in the 'Detailed Display' mode (two lines of information at the bottom of the LCD). If the second item on the top line is not ±0, the exposure compensation is not at its default value. To set, put the camera in M(anual) shooting mode. Press the Exposure/White Balance button until you see a scale along the bottom of the LCD from -2 to +2. Use the left or right button to set it at 0. If the value is already at 0, you will probably need service.

My canon powershot s3 IS is taking really dark pictures. The only decent pictures I can take with it are outside in sunlight. Pics indoors come out dark and grainy. I flip up the flash, but most of the time the flash doesn't go off, like there is enough light. And then when it does go off, the picture is way too bright. Help please!!


This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camer ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Please help! I have a Canon Powershot A460. When I take pictures in macro mode, they are all flashed out, so bright even if taken indoor. I can barely make out an image.

Design defect I have been a long time user of Canon Digital Cameras. I began with the Canon Powershot S200, Powershot S330 and graduated to an EOS Rebel XT.
