Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera ?

Canon IXUS50 overexposing each photo - white balance problem?

\015 I've had my Canon IXUS 50 for about five years. It had served me very well. But recently it's started to overexpose every single shot. I've scoured through all its menus to adjust white balance but there is not an option to. There doesn't seem to be a manual mode anymore either - I checked the instruction guide and it has vanished from the menu where it should be! This little camera used to take incredible pictures - some have even been published in magazines - without a problem. Now each photo is flat and overexposed, I can't use it. Has anyone had this problem and knows a solution? Many many thanks in advance for any help. \015\012\015\012\015

Canon A560 camera problem - the images are overexposed. I checked the exposure setting, AWB, and all other settings and they are all normal. There is an exposure setting where I can set to + or - 2, but setting it to -2 does not help much. Outdoor photos are almost completely white. There is some detail in black objects. Indoor photos are overexposed. Flash pictures seem OK. The picture on the display is OK. I compared some macro photos taken a few weeks ago with macro photos now. The good photo

Hi, I have a Canon 20D and a Sppedlite 550EX (I use for almost every shot). My problem is that 80-90% of my photos always return back from the printers too dark. I know this sounds like a printing issue, however I have tried 4 different printers and still have the same problem. I have tried up'ing my exposure both on my camera and flash, but this just overexposes parts of the photo too much. My histogram also looks relatively correct on these shots. I appreciate that photos will be taken too dar


Your exposure maybe off. Unless you are trying to suggest that the LCD displays pictures taken with a flash differently than those taken without one!On an LCD, underexposed picture will still look "ok" but, the Histogram tells the tale. I ... Digital Cameras

It still takes photos with no problem. I cannot access any functions because the LCD won't work. I've tried the Display button and got the black and white screen of death. I have to take the card out to transfer photos. Canon says"UNIT HAS IMPACT/PRESSURE TO LCD". Do I need a new LCD or what. thanks, steve stokes

I recently bought a Canon A590. I've taken perhaps 20 photos on half a dozen occasions and I'm having trouble getting the photos onto my computer (only 2 years old, up to date). I can usually only retrieve about 30% of the photos completely, another 50% "half" the photo with the other portions white, gray or black, then 30% I can't access at all. I'm not sure where to start to fix this problem; at this point I'm ready to return the camera and be done withit!

Magenta cast For many months now I have been shooting products and artwork with a Canon 10D and 2 white lighting strobes with larg silver lined soft boxes.The problem I'm having is with a magenta color cast over the entire picture especially if I shoot red subject material.I have tried vast changes in parameters and white balance and nothing I do with camera settings seems to help, I must always resort to post processing in PHOTOSHOP CS.

@when i am capturing using my canon camera during daytime, all i can see from the screen is white light.. but when it is dark, the quality of the picture is okay.. what is the problem of my camera? is it about settings or white balance? please reply..

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)

White out Every photo I take seems to white out, as if it is letting in to much light. But it is more than this, as it is possible to see white streaking on the image as well. I have also tried taking photos in various manual settings, resulting in the same problem. It seems to be a little better in doors. However when I use video mode the image is normal. This problem first occured on holiday in Singapore - when I took it into a shop out there they said it was probably the heat. But the problem
