Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera ?

Canon Powershot SLR takes fuzzy photos

\015 How do I take pictures of children (moving around) or pictures in low light without getting fuzzy photos?\015

Answers :

Try using the 'Sport' mode. I use this quite frequently when taking pictures in low light situations where either I want the natural light "dusk" or the flash won't reach (such as zoomed in past 15 ft). The shutter speed is set faster for fast movement, but also compensates for the low light.
\015\012you need additional flash or brighter light to click in low lighting condition. In order to compensate for low light conditions, the shutter goes slow and therefore you get fuzzy pictures.
\015\012Another way is to click on movie(video) mode and then atleast you can see them moving around as well as while editing, you could take out some pictures from the video( though on lmuch ower resolution).

I am a freelance writer. I have a Canon PowerShot A1000IS that I use to take photos to go along with articles I write for the local paper. Recently almost all the pictures I take are blurry on the top 1/3 of the photo. It hasn't always been this way and it doesn't happen all the time so it makes me think that possibly I have somehow gotten some of the settings off. The bottom 1/3 is sometimes a little blurry too but not as much as the top. Can anyone tell me what would cause this and what I can

The lens will not retract. A message says "lens error, restart camera," but the camera will not restart. The camera is a Canon PowerShot S3 IS. I can hear a "whirring" or motor noise when I try to start it, but the lens will not retract and it will not take photos or allow you to review photos. Batteries are just fine. I imagine it's the gears, but I wish I could have it repaired for not a lot of money.
