Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Zooming in & saving

Maybe I am being a bit dim but am hoping someone else knows what to do...I take a picture, view it on the screen, move it around, zoom in, etc...and then I want to save it that way but I can't work out how! I am not even sure this camera does this (I know the Sony Cybershot does but my husband in all his wisdom decided this was the better camera). If someone can tell me how to do this, I will be a happy woman :) Thank you in advance.

Re: Zooming in & saving

Your camera cantt do this. Use the external software that came with your camera, or I would suggest using Picasa ( It's free and very easy to use for this kind of thing. After all, any software on your computer will give you more options and a better result thatn the camera does when editing yoaour photos.

Coolpix p5000 viewfinder does not react to zoom

So from what I read her I think you can't use the viewfinder. It was the reason why I bought a powershot G9, a viewfinder. But on my camera, the viewfinder can't be used anymore, because of a mechanical problem. While zooming, what you see through the viewfinder stays the same. I don't think of giving the camera to a repair shop, because the camera still makes perfect pictures. And yes I would love the view finder to work like it used to be, but I leave it.
If your camera is still in warranty time, please contact a Nikon certified service centre immediately. If you have to pay for it, think twice and start saving for a new camera, if you still can make pictures.

I'm trying to crop the pictures i'v taken,it zooms in & out but doesnt come up trimming ok?

I found a driver for the s7000 on the website, but no manual online.

Can you go to a mode where the arrow keys can be used to move the page around for the cropping? That's all I can think of to accomplish the task.

Zooming in and out is ok, but I'm sure you want to move the image around a little bit, or move the borders of the cropping around.

Good luck on this.

How can i change the size of image on the lcd screen

Press the Zoom-in button (the one with the magnifiying glass) to zoom in. Press the Zoom-out button (the one with what looks like a part of a checkerboard) to zoom out.

Zooming in lets you look at a portion of an image, zooming out reverses it.

Zooming out also lets you look at thumbnails and navigate around them to select the picture you want. Then you can zoom in to fill the screen with that picture.

If you're looking at a picture full-screen, you can also press up/down on the multiselector to change your view of the picture.

Problem with sony cyber shot dsc- w80

I jeremy- i was having the exact same problem today. I phoned Sony repair, who then had me take out the battery and hold down the power button for about 30 seconds..reinsert the battery and power up. Didn't fix it. I came home and read some posts on here. I ended up trying the gently twist the lens as it was zooming in and out..I twisted a little and pulled a little. About the third time, it worked. (I also held the power button down with the battery in, just to try..maybe that helped, too). Sony wants flat fee of $91 to that what they told you?

Saving a zoomed picture

I hope you can do this thru the computer only.

If you want to zoom the image thru the camera and save only the zoomed portion, then it is not possible as far as I know.

View screen

Try pressing the up (triangle) button on the DISP a few times. I know there is an option to turn off the display screen maybe you guys accidentally turned it off.

Check out pg15 in the manual.

Hope this helps!

Taking pictures

You may have turned off the viewing screen mode. I've turned my off just to save the battery. There should be a setting/mode so that can at least scroll thru to view the images you've shot. As for the Busy Message my best guess is the memory cards full. My camera (a kodak) has the option to save images to a very small, useless internal memory or another card. Perhaps yours offers same - so switch to large memory. As for zooming in as close as you can, you may want to visit a state that's closer. Yea as you can see the zooms on the Point & Shoot cameras are very limited. Its only good for zooming into things that are just a very short distance away.
