This is a common problem with digital cameras. Canon makes a great camera you just need to know the trick. The shutter release has two stages the first lets the camera do metering the second takes the pic. to get action shots you need to frame the photo before the action ( set up the pic in the veiw finder or lcd display) the press the release to the first stop and wait for the green box or bracket (depending on model) the shot is now ready as soon as you press down the rest of the way it will immediatly take the pic.

this is the only way I'm aware of to get an action pic with a digital point and shoot. You bought a great camera but it's not quite an SLR.

hope this helps

I am trying to take action pictures on my kids in sports, everything is blurry. The continuous shooting mode is slow. Do I just need a better camera or is there a setting fix for this?


Hi, If you find the continuous shooting mode and the sports mode just isn't cutting it I'd suggest a batter camera. Depending on your price range and size my suggestion would be a Canon S95 or moving up to a DSLR. If your need more help with choosing a camera let me know and I can give you a hand =)

you should set it to a high shutter speed and f/stop also set your pictures to a RAW setting, if that made no sences let me know, and i'll say it abit more simple :)

Great camera - but only had it 3 years and flash not working now. Salesman at London Drugs, where we bought it from, says not worth repairing. I find this hard to believe - very expensive for only 3 years...


The salesman just wants to sell you another camera, but he may be correct in his assessment. Take it to a camera shop (not a department store camera department) or contact Canon customer service via their web site to arrange repairs. Be sure to get a firm price before you commit though, as the fix might approach the cost of a new camera.

Blurry photos if the subject is moving. I'm sure it's just a setting because it was never like this before....any movement at all and i get blurry pics.


You may have the camera set for manual settings and it stopped downtoo much this makes for long exposiure times and blurryy action shots. Your camera has an action or sports setting this will stop most blurs and turn the anti bump on its likly off

I have a Canon PowerShot A590 - still pictures are very clear. I took videos several weeks ago and they were very clear, now videos are blurry


Did you change your camera video's settings? There is an option where you can set it to a lower definition, like for videos. To change, choose the camera setting "Video" Then, Press the Left Or Right Arrows.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. 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 the following two links for more info:
