Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera ?


\015 The Canon SD1000 I use A TON has stopped flashing for any and all photos.

What menu & buttons do I need to use to get my flash back? Thanks\015

Flash Pictures I have a Canon XTi and am using a 580EX flash with it. The problem is, I have to set the flash at plus 1 1/2 to 2 stops to get a decent exposure. Is there something that I am doing wrong?
