Having problems with your Canon Powershot SX110 IS Digital Camera 9.0MP ?

I need to adjust the shutter speed for my Canon Powershot SX110. It is way to slow. And to make matters worse I lost our user manual.:(

You can download a copy of the manual from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=324&modelid=17480

The easiest way to control the shutter speed is to turn the mode dial to Tv (Time-value) mode. You then control the shutter speed by turning the command dial.

That's the "how". Now for the "why". I believe your main problem is the lack of light. In such cases the camera will slow down the shutter speed in order to get sufficient light to the sensor. A partial solution is to raise the sensitivity of the sensor. You do this by pressing the ISO button and pressing up/down to make your selection.

However, if there is not enough light, you just will not be able to get a sufficiently fast shutter speed. Depending on the situation, you can use flash, either the built-in one or an external unit.

The small sensor of a compact camera only makes it worse; the larger sensor in a dSLR will be more sensitive to light.

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

I have a D5000 camera w/ kit lens VR 55-200, less than a year old. Recently and only occasionally what is happening is when I press the shutter release button, the lens won't focus, it won't move in or out and it makes a odd noise, not the usual lens motor noise, but an odd squeaking noise, like it's trying to move but is stuck. The only way to correct it is to either shut the camera off and turn it back on again, or switch to manual focus, then back to auto. The battery is full, so it's not

After each shot the battery icon flashes on the LCD screen (the manual says this means the pop up flash mechanism is blocked, it's not) I press the shutter button down half way(as instructed and camera returns to shooting mode) but this happens all over again after each shot. I got to the end of the first roll and it came back completely blank. ?? I'm new to photography so, user error is possible, any ideas on what's wrong? Can I fix it or should I send t

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.


It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Kodak v610 camera (easy share) My 10 year son was using our v610 camera and the following error message E45 (please see user manual) appeared on the screen. We were unable to switch the camera off and therefore the shutter remained open. The shutter will only close if I remove and replace the battery and when I turn the camera back on the shutter remains open and the same error message returns. I have checked the manual and it doesn't mention this problem. thank you jane

Shutter speed on the auto mode of my s1000 camera seems slow. how can it be increased in the auto mode? This is a Fuji camera and by the time I press the shutter button subjects have moved. I have set the camera back to the original factory settings and I can adjust the shutter speed in the manual position but in auto it seems really slow.


You need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus before you press the rest of the way. This eliminates "shutter lag". ... Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

Hence no physical increase in shutter speed? Thanks for help.

There are two indications of how the batteries are inserted into this camera. One is on the lid ( + and -) and one is within the battery hold. The ones inside the battery holder are completely opposite of what is on the lid. Which one is the right way? I ask because freshly charged batteries are NOT working no matter which way I insert them. There is NO MANUAL with this camera,which I think is a cheap way for Kodak to sell these things. Very dissapointed with this camera.


Hi,The batteries are fitted one with the plus side down and the other with the plus side up.The one nearest the side of the camera is plus side up.There is a manual on http://www.kodak.com.Hope this helps.http://www.koda ... Kodak EasyShare C643 Digital Camera
