SOURCE: scn mode

You need to press the function/set button and click right until you reach the "Stitch Assist" icon. It looks like two overlapping boxs. Once you activate it, take photos, repositioning each shot to align with the last. When you are done, press function/set button again to end the process. After you download your images you will need to use the bundled software, ZoomBrowser, to stitch the images together. The option is in the Tools menu, "Stitch Photos".

SOURCE: Canon SD1000 display is black while the camera in shot mode

After some inspecting of the camera it seen the issue lies with the lens, not the camera itself so don't go banging the camera up or you might damage some other part and the camera will be broken for real. Inside the lens is a closer which block the internal system from capturing image. The closer look just like the one you see before turning on your camera but it's smaller and it's inside the lens way in the far back. Look carefully and you'll see it - you will see the closer if your screen is black while in capture mode otherwise you will see a nice round glass (the internal lens for capturing image/video).

Think of if like this, imagine an eyeball with its eyelid close. That's what happened when the screen is black while in capturing mode.

HOW TO FIX IT: In order to fix the black screen while in capture mode and cost as little damage to your camera as possible, simply turn on the camera in either picture or video mode and look inside your lens, there should be a closer in the far back end. Gently hit the lens a few times until you don't see the closer no more and only a round glass and your camera should begins capturing image and video again.

Good luck to you all. And remember don't use anger to force your camera to works or you will regret it.

SOURCE: Lost all button functionality except power and shutter

There is a secondary battery I suppose for memory retension. It is housed where the other batteries and memory card are, the battery is a CR1220. I replaced that battery and things are working well again.

Stuck shutter

It doesn't sound like a shutter problem, especially since the G12 doesn't actually have a mechanical shutter. It sounds as though there is either an exposure setting issue when the camera is in Manual mode or one of the other settings that will allow you to take a photo no matter the conditions. If it does the same thing when in full automatic there could be issues with flash or flash compensation or an internal issue. When it happens again, check to see that the camera has not accidently slipped into another mode.

Irregularly stuck shutter

usualy, light meter problems may cause images to be very dark or nright, but not tollaly black.
stuck shutter usualy causes a half blackend image.
you should try to reset camera Setting first, to ensure this problem does not come from any setting changes. if this does not work it will need a checkup in a lab
good luck

Why my canon G12 present black display or horizontal lines overexposed?

It's common on the G12. This is the place fixing these: They have a specific service package for this $89, parts and labor come included, plus they do the internal fix so it doesn't keep occurring on the camera. They are the best place for help with the Canon Powershots. Best of luck with it.

Where is the SCN mode on a canon rebel xsi

There are some scene modes available in the Basic Zone. Simply turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to the desired mode.
Full details are in the "Basic Shooting and Image Playback" section of the manual (beginning on page 43 in my copy). If you need a copy of the manual, you may download one here.

My cannon g12 camera takes over exposed photographs. he shutter is working well. so, help me.

Check your Exposure Compensation Dial. In shooting modes where exposure compensation is allowed, this dial can be set to decrease or increase the brightness of the image in 1/3-stop increments across a range of -2 to 2. You use this control to override the camera's automatic exposure settings to get a slightly darker or lighter image. It should be set to 0.

Canon 10D takes 30 seconds to shoot after sutter button depressed

You may have it set on shutter priority or the like with the time set to 30 seconds. Try set it to landscape, portrait etc, one of the auto modes, and it should clear up the problem.

Help me please

I can answer a few: Auto is for letting the camera 'sense' and automatically choose the settings (focus, shutter speed, so forth). M is for manually setting these (via menu I think). The head is for portrait settings (likely to soften the look slightly), If I recall correctly person in front of sun is actually a night setting ie longer exposure- but I could be wrong; Mountain with cloud is for landscape shooting and Runner for action shots like at a soccer match (faster shutter). I don't recall what the double-dashed whistle shaper or SCN are. Movie mode (if you have a large enough memory card) creates short movies with sound. The double box could be for coding each picture that you want to eventually 'stitch' together. All this is in my (lost) manual and likely downloadable at Canon's website as a digital manual.

TV AV could be when you hook up a TV or VCR.

SCN Mode on Canon A560

It confused me too. Just go to SCN and hit the function.Set button (the little round button). It brings up a menu and you can switch left or right with the menu controls.
