I just bought it today and I am getting and I also have been trying to figure out how to see prior pictures taken I have read the manual followed the instruction but still colud not view thw pcitures I have taken Thanks


Answers :

Guest is quite right - use the macro button on left hand side of lens (holding camera pointing at subject) Press once for "macro" which focuses from 10cm away. If you hold this button in for about 2 seconds, it puts your camera into "supermacro" mode, which gives focus from right up against the lens! (need backlighting for this close!) Supermacro will not work in Auto and Sport mode. Best is to use "AV" or "TV"

As far as viewing your pics goes - rotate the mode lever (You turn this anti-clockwise to turn ON) clockwise and you will see the most recent pic on your LCD screen. Use the left and right direction on the omni selector to naviagate through your pics.

Its a good idea to download the advanced manual onto your pc from the dic supplied. Its an adobe document and very user-friendly.

I hope this helps you.... :)
Dear user,

\015\012it is very easy, but you need to know that not in all setting you can use macro.. if you want to get marco try the setting useing "A" or "P" for example, and then press the macro botton near the lens, that is all ...
\015\012if you want to take a very near picture of an object, press and hold the macro botton until it said to you super-macro.

When I turn my camera on I only see a dark blue and black image with white lines running through it--could I have damaged something or have I messed up my settings?

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]


Someone else posted that Canon fixed it for free. \015\012\015\012Here's a link to the Canon service site that explains their take on the problem. Yes they will fix it if it is indeed a CCD issue.\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

We just purchased a Nikon Coolpix L18, 8.0 Megapixel camera. We understand how we can resize the picture, after we take the picture to 160 x 120 (e-mail), page 45. What we do not understand or can not see in the user manual is to be able to set the camera to the 160 x 120 BEFORE any of the pictures are taken and to have the 160 x 120 remain as a standard.
