Problems with taking pictures of horizons and buildings

If anyone is out there please help me. Sometimes when I take pictures of horizons, buildings and structures or even objects near by, the images comes out crooked. What I mean is that the image does not look as if it is horizontally balanced in the middle. It slants to a side, or it looks slanted. This same problem occurs when I take pictures of objects and there are vertical straight lines. They tend to slant to a side along with the object. When I take pictures of building the vertical line of the buildings appear bent, instead of straight. Some times to rectify this I also slant the camera and the lines appear straighter. Sometimes it doesn't work though Is there something wrong with my camera or is it just my technique that needs fixing. Please kindly advise me. Regards Anthony

Fugifilm finepixax655

I'm afraid your camera does not have that option. You could make a HD picture, by taking 2 or three pictures from the same scene, with different light conditions. So one normal and one 2 EV more or less. Then combining these pictures is a photo editor, bringing more light in the dark parts or more detail in the light parts.
Some camera's (DSLR and mirror less System cameras) have that option build in. They take 2, 3 or sometimes more pictures from one object, while pressing the shutter release button once. Then the build in software does combine these pictures to one.
But looking through the manual of the FujiFilm FinePix AX600 series, I could not find anything that looks like HD pictures. Sorry for that.

How to capture best picture

That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to the viewer. The best procedure for taking a portrait won't be the best procedure for taking a landscape, for example. You probably won't want to take a picture of a grandfather the same way you'd take a picture of his granddaughter, either.
That's just the technical side. You also have full control of the artistic side. You decide on the camera position, the time of day, vertical or horizontal orientation, etc. Sometimes you can reposition the subject, sometimes you can't (buildings, trees, and mountains are a little difficult to move). You decide what's in the picture and what's not. You decide whether the picture should be bright or dark.
The camera is just a tool. You're the photographer.

Bright light

Hold the camera steady on the subject for a second or two before snapping the photo with less than half of the picture taken above the horizon (aim low, not high). This should render better pictures.

This sounds like a defective CCD imager. 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 the following two links for more info:

Many many problems

This camera has had problems with the operations deck assy, this is the controller that inputs customer commands. Nikon is repairing many of these at little or no charge to the customer depending on the age of the camera. I would call them first to see if they will take care of this for you. Good Luck!
