Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera ?

Any suggestions as to what setting I should use at an indoor concert? I tried several different ones and none of them seemed to work. They either came out blurry or dark. Thanks! Kim

Answers :

Indoor concerts are difficult with a point and shoot camera. You'll need to set a high ISO. You need to be rock steady (a tripod or monopod is recommended). The white balance should be "tungsten". Turn off the flash.

Hello - My Olympus SP-550OUZ Camera was in a rucksack which slid of my shoulder and hit the ground. Although there is no obvious damage to it, nothing cracked, no marks etc., it has stopped seeing properly. Pictures already taken can still be viewed either in the viewfinder or the screen both work perfectly. The lens moves in and out not problem everything seems to work fine except when you look to take a picture either by viewfinder or the lcd screen all it sees is a blurry hazy purple pictu

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.

Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too.  Help please, it seems like I must be doing something wrong either that or my camera is broken. P.S. it is brand new Amber

No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

The flash is either far too bright or not bright enough even when using the auto setting. The flash either doesn't flash at all on "soft flash" and then blinds people when the flash is turned on so it produces very dark faces or bright white images. I've tried using different scene modes but this does not seem to work.

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

It seems like most of my indoor pictures are either dark or has a redish color to the pictures. I took pictures on the auto settings for the scenes. Then I tried the party scene. But all seems pretty dark. The flash does comes on most of the time.

Make sure your options are reset to factory default just to make sure some option has not been changed by accident, like white balance or others, then make some test shots. If that doesn't correct the problem, here are some more suggestions.\01 ... Nikon COOLPIX S570 Digital Camera

Can't see the camera from the computer. Everything works fine on the camera, but the USB connection doesn't work. It's like the usb driver chip failed.Put it on a linux machine, and can't see it from there either. I have reloaded the drivers several times. And it used to work on this computer. Other types of cameras work correctly with the same cable so it doesn't seem to be a cable problem. Does anybody fix these cameras?

Blurry pics The last time I used this camera, most of the pictures came out very blurry. I had to try to hold the camera completely still to keep them reasonably clear. These were just pictures of people, no sports, etc. It was on the usual auto setting. Even the ones that weren't too blurry were very grainy. It has worked fine in the past and I have never dropped it or gotten it more than rained-on wet. What could be the problem?

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.
