Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Wierd Images in Viewfinder and Photos

Camera has worked fine for 2 years and even recently. Now the images are "streaking" and semi-blurry. Picture throwing a cup of paint on a wall...the paint will run down. This is how my images look in the viewfinder: it seems to run down as if paint flowing down the wall. Camera was not dropped, but one thing I recall was I turned it on and the lens started to protrude, something blocked it's path so it couldn't fully extend. I heard the camera beep 3 times...I corrected the obstruction and the lens fully extended, but then immediately the aforementioned issue cropped up. Any ideas??

Sounds like ccd sensor faulty.the only thing you can try as you say fault happened when lens got jammed is to reset camera by removing batteries for a few secs and reinserting,if this does not work will have to go to service.,

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature...


Hi Steve, I inform you that the problem only is moisture. Please follow this.
1. Put the camera in sunlight for few hours. After that use it & if you face same problem then
2. You need to visit camera repair shop and they open the camera completely and clean all the inside part of the camera. because you need to clean the moisture inside of lens, viewfinder & sensor too.
So only hope in sunlight. If its solve then fine.

Image qulaity problem in fujifilm finepix fd50


It sounds like the resolution on the monitor may be set incorrectly in Photoshop. Try a different monitor setting. Twelve megapixels may result in your monitor "seeing" so many pixels it tries to ignore the excess ones, resulting in an image that looks poor on your monitor. If you order one print, that may give you an idea of the true printed quality without spending a lot of money on a bunch of bad prints. The F50 is truly an excellent camera and gives super images, from my experience.

Green & Purple blurry images


In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.

There's a little scrolling wheel to the left of the viewfinder; move it up or down until the image is clearest.
