Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Ixus 750 Blurred photos shot at a distance greater than a meter.

Hi, I Have had a canon ixus 750 for 2.5 years now with problems. It has taken some great shots. Two weeks ago all the shots taken at a distance became blurry and not focused. if a photo was taken up close ie within a  meter there are no problems. At greater distances it is terrible. I have checked the manual and there is no help there. Any ideas ? Kemble

Check to see that the camera is not in "macro" mode, which would only allow focusing at a close range, but not allow focusing at beyond about 2 meters (look for the "flower" symbol to tell you that macro is activated). Could also be an out of adjustment lens, due to impact or force. Also check to make sure it's not as simple as a dirty lens. Digital cameras are more succeptable to blurry pictures from a smudged lens than film cameras were. Of course, that wouldn't explain why close shots are OK but distant ones aren't. Probably the first two suggestions.

My canon SD 700 photos are blurred on one side of photo? No matter what I do my photos are blurred. Thier does not seem to be any problems with the camera's operation, just blurred photos?


Sounds like a stupid question, but, if the camera is operating correctly in all other ways, have you checked to make sure that you didn't smudge the lens at some point?

It wont focus and the photo is blurred


If the camera is showing a black or distorted screen when set to photo, and photos that are taken with the black screen also show up black or distorted, then this would likely be a CCD imager failure, a common occurrence for your model camera.
If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.Please check this linkfor more info.

I recently bought a Canon powershot SX200is and I was using it to photograph my 4 year old grandson's birthday party, however a lot of the shots were blurred, these were mainly taken indoor, when I checked...


I don't know your camera but on my fuji there is a setting that changes the "film speed". If it is set too low such as 100 or 200, it will make the exposure take too long causing blurry photos.
The higher the number, the faster it is.
Worth a try.
It should be under settings area. Also check to see if the flash is working or what I have seen sometimes, people don't realize that when shooting a picture, their finger is covering the front of the camera where the exposure meter is.

I have a canon ixus 70. When I use the zoom facility the pictures become blurred. WHY


Believe it to be a camera fault. Reason: zoom feature makes the lens extend for telephoto work, therefore, the autofocus feature should be working at any distance you set the lens for and your shots should be clear. Could be an autofocus problem or the lens and CCD are misaligned at the telephoto position. Have the camera checked by a qualified repairperson. Get an estimate first. You may want to ask this question at the Canon website also.
