I own a canon PowerShot S51S. When I open the camera to take a picture , it is blurred. But when I download to my pc or look them after in the camera it's O.K. Any help would be appreciate.. Lise


I'm not totally sure of your question or concern but let me attempt to show some light on what it is I think you are asking. The Canon PowerShot S51S is a huge step up from a pocket point and shooter, this is a very powerful camera with features that would make some Pro camera whimper. So to the problem I think you are having. The camera is fitted with an optical viewfinder but the image you are seeing isn't "Through the lens" in fact it's a digital image of what the camera sees and therefore will not appear clear to your eye. The image will look a little grainy and slightly out of focus. If the in focus indicator is showing your image is focused then take the picture as long as the focus indicator light is on then the picture will be in focus. The problem you are experiencing is compounded if you wear glasses. This is one place where you need technology to rule. I know what you are feeling believe me because I still have problems with a digital viewfinders. Right now I use seven different cameras one of them has the digital viewfinder and it just make me stop and think then rely on the in focus indicator. Hope this was a help but as long as the camera is functioning properly you have no concerns. By the way you have chosen a great camera for creative photography. Happy Holidays from Robert in Canada

My Canon Powershot S51S Digital Camera will not turn on


Obtain 4 new alkaline batteries. Do not use rechargeables, even if you believe they are fully charged. IT WILL POWER ON.

Of course, check the battery polarity orientation.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Formatting the memory card is the quickest way, go through your camera menu until you find the format option.

I would reccommend downloading a user guide from the Canon web site. Follow links for support and downloads.

Downloading images to computer.


While the camera is in the viewing mode plug the camera into the computer using the provided USB cable. As soon as you do that a window from windows should show up with all of your pictures located on your SD flashcard.
