Centrios digital camera model 2517040

VERY low resolution in pics. Looks like patch work on the computer screen, but great on the camera. Our card reader is top notch and there is nothing wrong with it. Our resolution on the pc is set at the right levels. There seems to be an issue with the picture quality. Why do the pics looks so bad from a 8mega pixel camera?

SOURCE: Pixel problem, all pictures taken have poor pixel resolution

It sounds like you set the file settings to a small file size - perhaps in order to get more photos on a single memory card. You need to change the setting to the largest file size possible, at the highest quality. The steps for this will be in your manual. If you need detailed instructions and don't have your manual, let me know and I'll lookup your manual online.

I rotated some pictures in my computer and was saving them.but now when I turn on my camara it says file error.why? Do I still have the pictures?


You cannot work on your pics using your computer and then expect your camera to recognize the changes made by a different operating system than its own. Use your computer to download all the pics (use a card reader if necessary). Once they are safely on your computer, format the card in your camera and vow never to do that again. If you want to rotate pics in the future, download them first and leave the ones on the card alone.

Video images transferred to PC are not as sharp as when played back on camera LCD


How about different videos do they have the same resolution? If yes the problem here is not with the video from the camera it can be the resolution of your computer , because if the video card of your computer is not high and the resolution is also not that high video will not look sharp when play to the computer compare when play directly from the camera...

Hope that helps.........

Your computer screen may need some color adjustments. Have you tried printing some of the pics to see if the color is as amazing as on the camera? Or have you tried viewing the pics on another computer for comparison?

I keep geting avery fuzzy pic


this is a low resolution camera, so its results may appear fuzzy, escesially if viewed on a higher resolution display/device.
try this: set the camera on a stationary surface and take a picture of a static scene, taking care not to move the camera at all while it captures the image. if this looks better than the photos in question then the issue is camera motion ( or available light or motion in the scene) while taking pictures. if it is similar to others then probably the low resolution is not sufficient for your expectations/needs.

When i take a picture it takes about 5sec for the pic to come up on the screen and it says 'busy". why ?


The card may be almost full. The battery may be low. The card may be a slow speed (they come in different speeds) You may be taking pictures at the highest resolution setting which makes the camera work harder.

Pic are not copy computer to camera?


If you are not able to transfer data from comp to card. Well what you can do is you can take out the memory card and fix it into the card reader (you will get a card reader vey cheap anywhere.). and connect it to your comp. Now your card will work as a flash drive and you can transfer data easily then... But some pics have higher resolution than your cam,so pics may not be visible on cam's LCD OR it may show pics are not compatible Hope this helps you out.. :)

Grainy pictures


You have likely set the camera to shoot photos in low resolution, or high ISO or both. Check your camera manual for detailed instructions on how to set these options.

If you don't have your computer manual, you can download one from this page at Canon.com. This is for the Powershot S500, this is the same camera as your IXUS 500, they just gave it a different name in different countries.

Always set the camera to shoot in the highest quality resolution mode. Memory cards are relatively cheap and you don't want to end up getting that photo of the lifetime but because you shot it in a low resolution mode you can't get a good print!

If you are shooting in low light the camera may be automatically boosting the ISO. There are only 3 ways to shoot in low light:

1) Flash - only works when your subject is relatively close to the camera.
2) Increase the ISO which results in noise in the dark areas of the image.
3) Use a tripod and a long shutter (slow shutter speed).

Blurry parts of pics


Sounds like subject movement. Try using a faster shutter speed

The operating system is not relevent to the screen resolution. This can be set from very low to the maximum that the monitor and display card combination can handle.

If you cannot achieve the proper resolution on your computer, it is possible that the display card and monitor combination may be not up to date to work with the camera software.

You have to make sure that the screen resolution is set to the minimum setting as recomended by the manufacture.

You can find the settings in the screen settings properties. Refer to the installation instructions for details.
