Here is the link to the user manual; http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=DownloadDetailAct&fcategoryid=320&modelid=11125 (just click on "Product/Software Manuals", then the download link is about halfway down the page that pops up) Page 45 "Self-Timer" should give you all the info you need - please ask again if not :)

On page 45 of your user's guide, there are instructions for setting up the timer for your camera. If you don't have the manual, you can download it online. Due to the way Canon has set up their website, there isn't a direct link available for downloading your manual. You must go to www.canon.com, then navigate your way to product support, specify which camera you are interested in, and then you will be able to download the manual.

All of a sudden my power Shot SD1000 Digital Elph is taking blurry pictures. HELP.


Camera shake is more likely the reason. These cameras do not have image stabilizers so a steady hand is a must. A mini tripod is a great item to use. Or just sit it on a ledge and press and see if it is any better. Also setting it on self timer (while on the ledge) gives the camera a chance to be stable without you touching it. Hope this helps. Also check what setting you have it on.

I used to have a really inexpensive Kodak camera. It started to fall apart...


press the power of the digital camera, wait until the camera is ready
select the object , press the shutter HALF way and wait for the camera to focus and lock on the target than press the shutter all the way

the best digital camera's can focus and lock and shoot in less than a second.
the advantage of digital camera's is that you can see the result directly after taken the picture

For several years my C-3020 zoom camera has worked fine. Suddenly, now when I take a picture, the picture leaves when I snap the shutter. Always before the picture remained on the screen so I could see if...


In the camera menu, there should be a setting for "review" to allow you to set the number of seconds the picture remains on the screen. Also, you can always review the pictures you've taken by pressing the review button on the camera...it's usually a button with an arrow that points to the right.

BLURY PHOTOS YELLOW TRIANGLE HAND EXCLAIMATION WARNING SYMBOL


It indicates the shutter speed is too slow for you to hold it by hand without something like a tripod.
Either there's not enough light in the conditions you're taking the pictures in, or you need to try changing the settings on the camera, such as increasing the ISO setting, or light sensitivity, so it can use a faster shutter speed.
If it's close range, turn on the flash.
If you can't change the settings, you can try bracing your hand against a fixed object so that the camera doesn't move, and just gently squeeze the button to take the picture. Novices frequently jab the shutter release to take pictures, which will cause blurry pictures from the camera moving.

When in any of the flash modes, wont take pic


Savvyme123, did you figure out this problem? Crazy thing -- the same day that you posted this, my camera was doing the same thing. When in flash mode, the red light on the front of the camera is on, but it won't actually the picture. When the camera is on flash-off mode, it takes pictures without any problem.

I can't figure out how to set the self timer from the manual on a canon powershot sx 110


For the SX 110 IS 9 mp camera: With the camera in picture taking mode, Hold the bottom of the roller dial down at the point closet to the timer icon. Hold it for a couple seconds, then the screen will display the timer settings. Select the setting you want and start taking pictures.

Taking Picture Problems HELP!!! PLEASE!!!


It could be the picture quality you are taking is set to high quality and the manual gives the higher figure in lower quality pictures.

You can go to menu/ settings / quality and change these to a lower resolution.

Hope this helps.

Not good photos indoors very grainy and bad light looking photos


Auto mode in poor lighting (generally always indoors without flash) sets high ISO, which produces ugly amount of noise (graininess). What you need is to keep the ISO under 200 by either:
Shooting well lit scenes, using flash etc.
or
Uusing one of the manual programs (M, S, A, P) and setting the sensitivity via the F-menu.
