Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera ?

How do i take a black and white picyure with canon sx20is.


Answers :

Press the FUNC/SET button, then use the up/down buttons to select the second item on the menu. Press left/right or turn the command dial to choose. Your choices include SE for sepia-toned and BW for black&white. For the full list of choices, look under "Changing the Tone of an Image (My Colors)" in the manual (it's on page 76 in my copy).

Having said that, it's usually better to do the conversion on a computer. You get more control over brightness, contrast, and so on that way. And, if that once-in-a-lifetime thing happens, you have the original in color.

Nchatta Hello, My Canon s45 was working perfectly until it was dropped from a very very small heigh in a soft leather case with protection. The camera works in the sense that it can read and display the images from the SD card perfectly, the lense extends but you cannot see anything on the LCD when wanting to take a picture bar a white box in the middle that usually turns green once focussed (but now doesn't.)

My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white.
