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

I cannot determine the sequence to set up the self timer. Can someone help me


Answers :

Hello. First of all let me say that one of the real pluses with digital cameras is that you can experiment with them and it will not cost you more money. The self timer has two choices for you. Either 2 seconds of wait time or 10 seconds. Turn your camera on and find the self timer. Choose the ten second option. Set the camera up to look at the subject and push the shutter button. Ten seconds will elapse and the shutter will activate. Regards, Joe

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I was helping someone download pics from his new camera and tried both Adobe Photoshop album starter and the finepix software. But when i open a photo in Photoshop, it says the photo size is 72 DPI. (My nikon doesn't do this when downloaded.)
