Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

WHY WON'T THE CAMERA ZOOM ALL THE WAY? - Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera



Answers :

HI,
The only thing I can determine looking at the camera, is that it may possibly be in the "Macro" (closeup) mode, or the "Super Macro" mode (closeup meaning inches away from the object).
On page 40 of the User manual it instructs which button to push and what the symbol looks like in the viewfinder. On many cameras if they are in the macro mode, it limits your ability to zoom, out or in.
Here is a link to the manual in case you need it.
Hope this helps you.
Best Regards,
Mark
