If you need to get close, use the Super Macro scene mode. Otherwise, I'd use the Program mode so as to be able to control the depth of field. I would also use a tripod or other stable support so as to eliminate camera shake. I would also use the self-timer so the camera has a chance to quit moving after I take my finger off the shutter release button.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot A430 horizontal lines problem

have opened my camera. (it was useless anyway, right?) GUess what I found: in the lens-assembly there is a ribbon cable that controls the two solenoids, one of the shutter, one of the diafragm (or what it's called). This one is broken, the electric circuits are discontinued and so there is no control. It seems to be a design error since it broke exactly where the ribbon bends at 180 degrees almost with no place for a loop most of the focussing time. Can anyone find out where to find a NEW replacement ribbon cable? 847a466.jpg

SOURCE: Can I export photos from iPhoto back into the Canon G9 PowerShot?

No, you can't.
You only can transfer the pictures back to the camera if the pictures were taken by the same model cameras, plus the pictures were not modified.

SOURCE: Canon A480 - how to set self timer

According to page 57 of my copy of the A480 manual:

Press down-arrow.

Select the self-timer (the 10 inside a clockface).

Press FuncSet.

This sets the self-timer. Press the shutter halfway to focus, and fully to take the shot.

Testimonial: "What came in the package was a brief manual called "Getting Started". However, I did find the official full-feature manual at Canon's website, Thanks."

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My canon powershot sd 600 will not switch between

Had same problem and just fixed it! I just turned it off, took the battery AND card out for a few minutes and then making sure I had it switched to still mode, put the card and battery back in and turned it on. Working fine again. I suspect it actually does a 'reset' this way so what seemed to be a mechanical issue was definitely a software one ...

My Canon PowerShot A480 isn't recognized by my Mac. I don't have a memory card reader on my comp - oddly, an old no name camera prompts Canon software to open as soon as it's plugged in t


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I have a powershot A480 canon camera and it date stamps all my photos. How do I disable this function?


If you press the "Function Select" button then press the outer ring UP or DOWN to select the icon that looks like a clock on the left and panel. Then press the outer ring LEFT or RIGHT until the L is selected and appears in the panel on the LHS. That will remove the date stamps from the photos.

Cheers, Richard

PS Great choice of camera by the way.

Use of macro digital feature


hi,let me just inform u that the macro mode is only for outdoors.So on the side of the camera u will find a sliding switch.Just slide it to the opposite direction to turn off the macro mode.Since u wanted to take pictures of jewelry pieces,turn on the flash if u have one and then take a closeup shot with good lighting conditions.If its too bright then use only the flash,if u r not satisfied with the quality then use only lights and then take a pic.Still face any prob plz get back to me.
