Suddently my photos have too much purple and are grainy.

I have cleared all settings in case I had something set wrong and it's still too dark, grainy and purple. This is happening both inside and outside.

To start remove camera battery for one minute, this will reset settings to factory.

If pictures are all purple and shady , and this is not a setting problem , then it is usually a bad CCD sensor.

On many models (depending on year) CCD sensor repair will be entirely covered by Canon. Give them a call to check it out.

When taking a picture the photos are very grainy. Five out of 1 will snap a clear photo. Any suggestions?


With a point and shoot camera, you are leaving everything to the integrity of an image to the camera and sometimes in a low light situation especially "Grainy" suggests that your ISO is set too high. Check your lighting and add light to your focal point (subject). In dark lighting, you must use a higher ISO or better light and yes grain will appear evident in your photos if everything is on auto in some cases. Also, you may want to try shooting RAW (if there is a RAW option) so that your image will be more adjustable in post (editing your photos) because more information is recorded thus allowing to proof with a higher degree of forgiveness. On another note: If you are that interested, perhaps you should take a coarse in photography and try out a more customized productivity with an SLR body that you are able to set your camera to its best settings according to what you are shooting? I hope this helped? Have fun!

Why are most of my photos grainy? I have read all about my settings but I can't find what I am doing wrong please help


Graininess can be caused by a high ISO setting while taking pictures in low light situations. You could also have the picture quality set to a low megapixel setting.

What image resolution should i be using for regular 4x6 prints i have a 10.1 megapixel camera, but my pics still look grainy


Your pictures should not be looking grainy. Are they printed grainy but look clear on your screen. If so then it's just your printer. Try forcing the flash in the highest resolution. If you video's are grainy too then there is possibly something wrong with your camera. Make sure your lens is really clean. Worst case your CCD sensor inside your camera could be bad. Hope not!

When taking night sport shots I don't think I have the right settings for clear photos they are coming out tooo blurry. Help!!! the photos are grainy also and dark. Could you send me the correct setting...


More likely you don't have enough light for clear photos. There's not too much you can do about this, since you probably can't add more light to the stadium or arena and the action is too far away for your flash.

Since the low light is going to force a rather slow shutter speed on you, you need to stabilize the camera. Use a tripod or monopod. That won't stop the athletes from blurring, but at least the setting will be sharper. Alternatively you can try panning with the motion, freezing the athlete and blurring the background.

A faster lens will get you a couple of additional stops, but as such lenses can cost $2000 and more, unless you're taking pictures for Sports Illustrated...

INSIDE PHOTOS ARE DARK AND GRAINY


Regardless of the camera make/model... dark, grainy photos are usually a result of a lighting problem. Looking at the specs for your camera, the flash is only speced for 4m. If you are shooting near or above this you might have trouble. I ended up using an external flash that is triggered by sensing the cameras flash. Pretty inexpensive and pics ar 10x better. Try a local camera shop or B&H Photo (NYC) is where I got mine set up on line.

Grainy pictures


grainy pictures are possibly casued by a very high ISO (sensativity) setting, you should be on 100 or lower for best normal shots. Higher settings are for low light and custom shooting in strange lighting or aperature/shutter speeds. Try full auto setting.

Dark pictures


Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure.
