Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera ?

I bought a canon sd1100 a year ago. It used to take great pictures. One month ago all pictures taken have been grainy. Do you know why>?


Answers :

Could be that ISO settings were accidentally changed. The main annoyances with high ISO setting are the noisy (grainy as you say) images. Check the iso settings if you are shooting in modes other than automatic shooting.

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,


You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera

I've been using this camera for just over 2 years now with the same 1GB SD memory card. but just a week ago at my high school graduation party and ceremony, I've taken a decent amount of pictures(maybe about 30 or so) and I know that isn't much for a 1GB SD card. I had some other photos and videos recorded on this card which are important to me. So just a week ago after taking a break from taking photos I decided to turn camera back on but the camera says "Card Error". I took the card out and sw

Grainy Pictures I have had my olympus stylus 710 for about 6 months and have been noticing more and more grainy pictures once developed. They are usually when taken indoors. It doesn't look grainy on the LCD screen but when they are developed it is very grainy. This even happens when the flash is used. Any suggestions? Is there a setting I can change for higher quality pictures? I have a gig memory so I don't care if I am going to be using a lot of space. Got 7.1 megapixels and want to use

Grainy pictures I have had my Nikon Coolpix S8 camera for two years. At first the pictures were all very clear and I was very happy. But the last three months they have become very grainy and my colours, as they appear on pictures taken, are not true. Do I need to change some settings? If so, please advise giving me clear directions. I am camera illiterate. Please help me. Thank you.

Canon 1400 IS: When I take a picture using flash of a close up object, a shadow is cast on the lower right corner of the picture. For pictures that are not taken close up with flash, or taken from further away and just zoomed in to the object, does not have this issue. Do you know what could be causing this shadow issue?


It's most likely the shadow of the lens. The flash is above and to the left of the lens, so the shadow of the lens will be to the right and below. ... Digital Cameras

Pictures missing some (not all) of pictures taken end up missing from the camera ; they can't be viewed on the camera or loaded into my pc. I know the pics were there but missing later. this has happened with two separate memory cards so I know it's not a card problem. I've had the camersa a few years and this is the first problem. One of the memory cards intermittantly comes up with a "memory card error" message but not the card that was exclusively in use when the problem first showed itself.


If you haven't done so yet, take one of the cards, reformat it correctly (please ask again if you need info on how to do this) and see if you get any change.\015\012\015\012Are you using a PC card reader to transfer the photos or a USB cable?\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Shutter speed Hi all, I just recently bought the s400, and I love the camera, though I will admit I was disappointed that I couldn't control the shutter speed. I am confused though, becuase looking at reviews and pictures taken by the s400 the author said what the shutter speed was - how could they possibly know that? Is there a way to tell what your shutter speed is? I can't figure it out .. It is said that shutter is best at 1/125 for motion pictures - so how will I know if thats what my sh

Grainy pictures Lately my camera's pictures are very grainy and blured. I think I have accidentally ajusted something wrong, and I know little about cameras. Aperature or shutter speed or something???


Grainy pictures are possibly casued by a very high ISO (sensativity) setting, you should be on 100 or lower for best normal shots. Higher settings are for low light and custom shooting in strange lighting or aperature/shutter speeds. Try full auto se ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Formatting I didn't know what formatting meant, so I turned it on, and it deleted all of my pictures. I had over one hundred pictures of my family and I. They were amazing Christmas pictures, and I am deeply saddened about what happened. I was wondering if there is any way to get the pictures back. I haven't taken any pictures so that I don't overwrite them. My dad told me there is software he has that I can use that restores files that you accidently deleted. But he has never tried it on

Lost pictures I have lost all of my pictures and videos off of my camera. I have a 6 month old son and I have just lost all of his baby pictures! I cannot find the manual and desperately need help. Everything on the camera seems to be functioning correctly but I have not taken any more pictures to test it. Anyone have any ideas about how I can retrieve them? I know I should have backed them up. :(

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.


You probably got some condensation on the lens from going in and outside. You should be able to go to a Wolf Camera or similar store and have it cleaned. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

No picture My camera turns on, and various icons are visible on the screen, but no picture(ie no picture of what I am trying to take).
