Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera ?

THE DIGITAL ZOOM APPEARS NOT TO WORK. MAGNIFYING TO 16X CAUSES A BLURRY PIX, IN BOTH VIEWER AND PHOTO. DO NOT THINK THIS IS A RESULT OF ANY FUNCTION SELECTED.


Answers :

Digital zoom magnifies the pixels to seem like you're getting closer to the subject but you're not. The larger the pixels, the worse the picture will look. You should never use the digital zoom (most people disable it). Only use the optical zoom.

Blurry photos THe last few times I have attempted to use my camera I have had two problems. One, each time I turn it on it resets itself as if I have never used it and goes back to the language selection and and I have to reset the date (which I stopped doing because of the inconvenience every time I wanted to take a photo, so now all my photos say January 1, 2000). Also, every time I go to take a photo, the picture is blurry. I have tried to reset the quality, but it's not helping and, admitted

I am a freelance writer. I have a Canon PowerShot A1000IS that I use to take photos to go along with articles I write for the local paper. Recently almost all the pictures I take are blurry on the top 1/3 of the photo. It hasn't always been this way and it doesn't happen all the time so it makes me think that possibly I have somehow gotten some of the settings off. The bottom 1/3 is sometimes a little blurry too but not as much as the top. Can anyone tell me what would cause this and what I can

I have just purchased a Bushnell Trophy Cam Model 119450. It will take one photo of a moving subject, then only records at the time interval rate ie every 2 minutes or whatever interval is selected. The result is that I end up with hundreds of images taken every 2 minutes (or whatever time interval is selected) but with no images of the animals I am attempting to photograph.

My EX Z1000 Casio digital camera has functioned perfectly till suddenly, without provocation, the screen refused to light up. Since then, all else seems normal, but no photo results from my use of the camera, only a black screen where the photo should be. I've already tried removing the battery for 30 seconds, but it makes no difference. Can you give me some suggestions about what to do?

When using my d80 (no matter what lens is on it) it just keeps trying to focus and will not take the picture. It was fine on Sun and then Tue wham!! I can not think of doing anything to it and no one has touched it. You can hear the motor as the lens is trying to focus. If I focus manual no problem except a lot of the photos may still be blurry (that could be me)


Be sure the lens is firmly switched to M/A. For some reason the camera is not acquiring a subject to focus on. Have you tried a simple subject with lots of contrast, like a black something against a white background. Cameras have a tough time when ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Just received a mint condition Nikon Coolpix S4 swivel-head digital camera off eBay. Installed new AA alkaline (Duracell) batteries and a new 1GB SD card. From the firt time I fired it up this morning, all downloaded still photos from my Nikon Coolpix S4 have evenly spaced, horizontal lines spanning their full width. These lines also appeared on the LCD viewer in view mode. However, the S4 functions perfectly in video mode. Is there a service centre fix up for this? Is this camera salvageable? T
