Re: photo is blurred and distorted

It is possible that this is a CCD issue, and may be subject to a recall by Canon. Take a look at: for more details about the recall.

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.

Your LCD is only a small preview screen. I have on many occasions tested a camera and viewed on the screen. When you view the image on a computer it is enlarged to a much larger image. If your pictures appear out of focus you may have a bad lens. Set your camera to the highest mega pixel rate and retake some test images. If these are blurred you have a bad lens.

Fujifilm S5000 model, works well but have picture problems.

You want to set the focus mode to S-AF, then move the focus mode selector to the lock position.
Hopefully that will fix the problem.

View finder in samsung VP- W90 very blurred. Focus not the problem.

If the focus is blurred on the view finder, assuming you are talking about the eye piece and not the lcd, then it is a out of focus issue. Even though when you view it it's ok. Some cameras still have a focus knob somewhere to focus the eye piece.

Blurred and distorted view of the subject

Its possible that there is a CCD issue with your camera. I've been reading more and more people are having CCD issues with the S1-IS. The CCD is the part of the camera that captures the image, and usually they distort or do some funky things with the pictures. Its entirely possible they would knock something out of focus.
