Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera ?

Super macro It says hold macro button for more than a second to get super macro mode and I'll see its icon appear on the LCD monitor. It doesn't. The image remains blurry.

Answers :

Press the macro button once to get it to display the Macro Mode sign. Press and hold it after that to get it into Super Macro

Once you are in Super Macro, you can't move the lens so you MUST use the Manual Focus (MF) button that is located right above the Macro toggle button. While holding the MF button, use the 4 way directional pad to focus in and out. Press the Up and Down to focus.
You have to be REALLY close for Super mode.. less than about 6 inches

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen. Everything else works fine in the monitor, but it is as if the lens where covered with the cap. But it´s not, and acutally all the other modes work fine.

Just got a new Nikon D80. I'm used to a Coolpix which has continuous images on the LCD. The D80 appears to present an image only when monitoring the picture and not while using the monitor to compose the shot. I assume this is because it is of the SLR breed. Am I correct?

Yes. Only the most recent DSLRs have a Live View capability. The D80 does not. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Blurry Images Hi, I have a coolpix 5700 and sometimes when I take pictures with it and later go look at them on the camera's display they start out blurry and then "snap" into focus. However, when I later load them on my computer, they remain blurry. I can't find anything in the manual describing this phenomenan but it really annoys me because the pictures look so good on the camera, but I can't get that quality on my print outs or monitor display. Does anyone know anything about this? I'd like

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!

Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
