PowerShot SD1100 IS - Problems!

\015 Hi. I have a few problems with my camera. First, when I try to download pictures from my PowerShot SD1100 IS to my MacBook, it says Connection Error, which has never happened before. Another problem is that when I try to erase, it always says buys, this just started happening, too.\015

Answers :

It sounds like your SD card has become corrupted. Have you ever formatted it in your camera? If the answer is no (or you didn't know that it needed camera formatting), then this is even more likely the problem. A new unformatted card will initially work fine in the camera, but with time they nearly all will corrupt.\015\012
\015\012You'll need to format the card in the camera, using the camera's format option to rejuvenate the card, and to prevent this from happening again. However, this will erase any photos that are already on the card. \015\012
\015\012If you want to recover the photos first, here's some Mac freeware from CNET. You'll need to use a card reader with this software. Also if you have problems with this software, there are other "non-free" options available at CNET.\015\012

I have a canon powershot sd1100 IS and bought it on ebay back in the fall. I havent had any problems and it was in great condition. One night I went to erase some pictures before going out- the camera was fine. About an hour later, I took the camera out of my purse and when I turned it on I saw the screen was white whether I went to take a picture or view one. I can still take pictures and load them on my computer but I can't see what I'm taking because of the white. Is there a way to fix this?

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)
