Canon A720 IS

I'm trying to set the ISO to 100. The manual shows how to press the func. set button and then using the up/down outer ring scroll up and highlight iso and make the change. My camera won't go up to the iso icon, it will only allow me to highlight the square box the L and the quarter-circle icon directly above it. Can you tell me how to change the iso setting?

The camera will not let you do this in "Auto" mode. Instead try P (Program) mode. This mode is actually the same as Auto mode, except it allows you to change some of the other settings, such as ISO.

Also don't be afraid to explore using your other mode settings. The A720 is an awesome camera with many capabilities.

Changing file/photo size


Image size: Press the FUNC/SET button. Use cursor-up/down to select the current image size at the lower-left corner. Use cursor-right/left to select the desired size and press FUNC/SET.

File size (compression): Same as above, except choose the item just above the image size.

Full instructions are in the "Changing the Recording Pixels/Compression (Still images)" section of the manual (page 57 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

How do I set my canon powershot a720 IS to take pictures in black and white?


Press the FUNC/SET button. Use cursor-up/down to select the fourth item along the left edge of the screen. Use cursor-left/right to select "B/W". The instructions are in the "Shooting in a My Colors Mode" section of the manual (page 107 in my copy).

In general, you're better off shooting in color and converting to black&white using a photo editing program on a computer. You get much better control over things like brightness and contrast this way rather than letting the camera do it.

How do I take black and white photos using a canon powershot?


Place the camera in P, Tv, Av, M, Movie, or Stitch-assist mode. Press the Func/Set button, and scroll down to the "My Colors" icon on the left side (second or third icon down, should show "My Colors Off" at the bottom of the LCD). Now use the left/right buttons to select "B/W", and press the Func/Set button again.

How do I take clear action pictures?


You can turn the dial to TV and set the shutter speed faster but you will need a bright sunny day to set it faster than 1/500. Make sure the ISO is set to auto or one of the higher settings. ISO settings are accessed by the FUNC.SET button on the back of the camera. Indoors you can turn on the flash with this setting but I doubt the flash is effective more than 15 or 20 feet. You can also try setting the dial to "kids and pets" which is a more automatic setting.

I have a canon digital ixus i zoom but everytime i take a photo outside in the sun the photo is to bright?can you tell me what settings i need to go on ?


I'm assuming you have an SD30 camera? Press the Func/Set button and scroll to the top of the menu bar on the left. Scroll to the manual setting, now scroll down to the Exp setting and scroll over to -2/3. Scroll down to the ISO speed and select 100 or 200. Scroll down to the light setting and select Day Light. You can also try playing around with the color setting by selecting Vivid, and the file size set to Large Smooth. This should help/
