Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera ?

Accessing functions: sepia and B&W effect


\015 While in shooting mode, set to manual, when I press the function key I can see the effect mode, but can't access it using the arrows. It just keeps switching back and forth between the bottom two resolutions. What am I doing wrong?\015

Answers :

I have the same problem, read the same page in the manual a above, and no resolution to it. Now, on top of not being able to access those options/features, the camera has stopped recognizing the Video and picture stitch features, so that when selected, all the camera does it simply take a photo. This is the 4th and LAST canon elph I will ever buy. I keep having to upgrade because their junk keeps malfunctioning...I will never again buy a Canon. Their Selphy printer is the same junk, after hardly ever using it -- it just stops working out of the blue and Canon gives you no support for these issues with their junk.
You may be selecting the wrong option on the menu. Here is the page from the manual on how to set this mode. You should be able to set B/W and Sepia in manual mode.
