Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera ?

Some of my pics are great but most are awful

\015 Some of my pics are great but most are so blurry and full of red eye they aren't even worth printing. I have no idea how to fix it. Its supposed to be a point and shoot type of camera and it seems as though I'm missing something. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be wrong this camera. I'm ready to flush it. Please help.\015

Answers :

Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and allowing the camera to lock in focus before you press the rest of the way? Red-eye is common to all point-and-shoot cameras because the flash is almost in line with the lens. This can be removed with many photo programs. Your camera has a red-eye setting which pre-flashes to eliminate the red-eye effect.

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

I have been having problems getting sharp pictures. Especially indoors. I have the cool pix 6000 and reset all my settings to the factory settings. My pictures indoors seem almost "filtered"...not sharp at all. I took some pics outside and they are great. Shouldn't the auto setting adjust to take great pics inside and out??

My nikon d3000 is great. but now when i view my pics there is a flashing in certain areas of the pic. also my flash won't flash. is there something i can do to fix it

This flashing is often an indication that those areas are 'over exposed'. This could be because you have manual settings such as 'EV +1'etc., or 'spot metering' when you took the picture centred on a dark part of the scene. You could check this by se ... Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera
