Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Manual mode I bought a G9 and so far I´d had no problems but I tried to use the Manual Mode and found that the pictures it takes are almost black... I went over every setting, tried diferent sensibilities but I cannot find the problem. In the other modes Auto, P, Av, etc, it works perfectly fine. Can anybody help me?

I presume that when you select Manual Mode you are then selecting a suitable aperture and speed and ISO to give you a correct exposure? If you are then I guess this is a problem for Canon to sort out.
Sorry if I'm teaching you to **** eggs - trouble is on a site like this we have no idea of the skills of the operator - you may be a novice - but I suspect you know how to go about it and have no need for this obvious response - anyway, good luck!!

Fuji finepix S5600 won't take pictures


A possible solution could be found in the menu of the camera. Scroll through the menu and look for any dropdown menu that deals with mode and see if the correct mode is selected.

Nikon D3100 pictures come out black/blank


As a test, I would take a photo with the camera in the auto exposure mode. Write down the ISO number, f-stop and shutter speed the camera uses. Next, set your camera to the manual mode and set the ISO number, f-stop and shutter speed that you recorded. If the picture is displayed correctly, your problem was that you used the wrong settings in manual. If you still have the problem, you need to have Nikon take a look at your camera. You can call Nikon's USA Repair Center at 1-800-645-6687 from 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

Taking a picture, everything that is white is pink and dark pics


Oops, it looks like you have a couple of annoying problems with your Kodak camera.

Is your camera still in warranty by where you bought it (30 days) or the manufacturer (1 year)?

Canon g9 image size


Are you looking at multiple pictures in the play mode? If so select one image and you should go back to the standard method of right and left clicking the dial. The mode your in you can use the scroll wheel to breeze through images.

While I can't be specific for your camera the "Palm" sign normally indicates that "Anti-shake stabilisation" is operational and although you can normally turn it off it is preferable not to as it improves the quality of your recording especially when using long zoom.

Pentax istD won't take pictures


i found this which seems similar

http://www.pentaxuser.co.uk/forum/topic/ist-D--HELP-444/p-0#comm_2164

"I know this is late, but the issue sounds to me like the aperture ring is not on A. and if this is a manual lens then you have to set the mode to hyper-program mode and set it to work with "other than A" on aperture."

----
this was my issue, i never knew that has i bought the camera 2nd hand without a manual - your issue might be something else but it's worth posting just incase

I too am having the same issue with mine but instead of turning off it stays on but will not display anything except the hud interface. It will not show anything when in camera mode.
