Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Inital picture playback showing too much info (histogram, etc)

I have the Canon Digital Elph SD600. Only problem I have is that right after you shoot a picture, during that 2 seconds you have to see it in the LCD screen, it is displaying a lot of "detailed" info with it, which gets in the way of seeing the pic. I can't figure out how to get it back to displaying only the pic and the "basic" info. They refer to "detailed" and "basic" info in the Advanced User Guide, but don't tell you how to switch it.

    I tried your first suggestion about repeatedly pushing display while it is showing too much info. It worked, and oddly enuf, the camera held that setting. I tried your second suggestion, but there is no "Custom Display" option in mine, at least I didn't see it. (only clock display) For now I seem to be good to go, and apparently when this keeps recurring, it is because someone has pushed the "display" button too many times while reviewing, and then that setting sticks until I change it back. Thanks!

There should a display button on the back side of the camera. Press the same repeatedly till you select the display you like. This would ne applicable when you are shooting or are reviewing the images.
For the review of the image right after you have shot, Go to the (Rec.) Menu> scrool down to >Custom Display> set button
Here you can set the level of information you want on the monitor, you can remove the tickfrom the information you don't require.
Let me know if you could manage to remove the unnecessary info...

    Dont worry it should hold.

    Most canon digital cameras have the custom display menu in the Rec mode. Let me check again and see whether the same holds good for Elph SD 600.

    Meanwhile Cheers!

I cannot take photos when i shot with manual mode.The shutter clicks but no picture is actually taken.Darkness.The auto mode works fine.Lens Nikkor Micro AF-S 105mm.Drives me crazy


When you shoot in manual mode, make sure your camera sensor gets enough light. When you shoot inside with dimm light at 1/1000 of a second or faster and a aperture of 8. all pictures will be black.
The best way to learn shooting in manual, is to shoot a picture in the P mode and put the picture on the screen (>) button. then select the info, where you see time, aperture iso and so on. and even better select the histogram. Note the figures in your head (or on paper) and then goto manual and make sure you have almost the same settings. Then shoot en look what the histogram shows. No histogram on the right, means to little light, so lower the shutter speed, open the diaphragm or increase the ISO. No histogram on the left, means to much light, so higher shutter speed, lower ISO or smaler diaphragm (the aperture number must be up. 3,6 is wide open 16 is almost closed.

How do i remove the histogram from my lcd screen?


While viewing the picture, press the INFO button to cycle through the various available views. See the "Image Playback" section of the instruction manual (page 71 in my copy). If you need a copy, you may download it from here.

Did you accidentally hit the DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. It turns the LCD screen on and off in picture mode to save batteries.
