I cant view the picture clearly while shooting and playback too.i was on a picnic 2wks back,and was taking pictures with my canon SD550 POWERSHOT CAMERA.. all of a sudden the display in the screen blurred...

There is a focuing ring with electromagnets on it, and it swivels to focus. When sand, dirt, lint, or dust works its way into the lens assembly, it can get stuck, failing to focus.
Spray some compressed air into the lens area to try to dislodge it. Then bump it gently if the compressed air doesn't work. Here is a list of things you can try for a jammed lens:
If these don't work, your focus ring is jammed and you will have to fix it or have it serviced. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair often justifies buying a new camera.
Good luck, these tips might help you.

Chip says full after few pics

The chip may not be inserted correctly. You can tell by seeing or not seeing SD symbol in the view screen. Try removing the SD card. Go through the memory and see if the pictures were saved to the camera or to the card. If the pictures were saved to the camera, turn off the camera and re-insert the card. See if the cards responds by showing more pictures available for taking and move the pictures to the card. If the pictures were saved to the card, then the card may need to replaced.

Can I transfer pictures from my computer back to my chip

If you have a micro SD card that has an adapter for your computer you can plug it into your computer and open it inside an explorer window and drag and drop pictures from your computer folder to your picture folder on the micro SD card. You can definitely do it. I just did it for a friend of mine and it works perfectly. That's why they sell the micro SD cards with the adapters for your you can transfer things back and forth. Mine is the 8GB Kingston that comes with adapters from micro to mini to regular SD card and to USB port. I bought it from for under $20.

Guest is quite right - use the macro button on left hand side of lens (holding camera pointing at subject) Press once for "macro" which focuses from 10cm away. If you hold this button in for about 2 seconds, it puts your camera into "supermacro" mode, which gives focus from right up against the lens! (need backlighting for this close!) Supermacro will not work in Auto and Sport mode. Best is to use "AV" or "TV"

As far as viewing your pics goes - rotate the mode lever (You turn this anti-clockwise to turn ON) clockwise and you will see the most recent pic on your LCD screen. Use the left and right direction on the omni selector to naviagate through your pics.

Its a good idea to download the advanced manual onto your pc from the dic supplied. Its an adobe document and very user-friendly.

I hope this helps you.... :)

How many pics can you take with a digital camera? After 1200-1500 pictures my C2500L says funny then using the autofocus. It's still working fine, but I'm a bit worried about it. And what about...

Take a look at this discussion of shutter lifepsan. 4531.html To summarize these posts, average number of cycles (one instance of open and close shutter) is somewhere between 50,000 and 150,000 cylcles. As one poster pointed out, we seem to take more pictures with digital than with film cameras, so a hundred thousand cylces might not be that many. I have a c2500L bought used at online auction and have probably taken about 1500 pics so far. Don't know how much previous owner used it. It's amazing how many pictures you take when you don't need to spend money on film and processing! The c2500L is a really nice camera and I hope that mine lasts many years. My c2500L is an early one with version 1.0 firmware (later models have version 1.20 sticker on side) and was built in about 1999 I think. As for autofocus, mine works great as long as I have the focus mode (regular, macro, super macro) and zoom level set correctly for my distance to subject. Fortunately, the green focus indicator lamp near viewfinder flashes when focus isn't right. A few other thoughts on focus: taking picture through glass, in mirror, or scene with no contrast (like a solid grey sky) might require you to use the manual focus or focus lock modes. Window glass fools camera, which tries to focus on glass instead of your desired subject. For mirror, you need to double the normal focus distance (measure distance from camera to mirror, focus on something twice as far, then lock focus and take your pic in mirror). With SLR film camera, mirrors and glass don't cause trouble because you are focusing manually. One other note on fuzzy or dark corners on pictures: if you use filters, especially a thick filter like a polarizer, you should probably get a 43mm to 46mm adapter and use bigger filter. At widest angle zoom, my polarizer causes vignetting in corners because the filter actually is "seen" by lens in corner of pics. Oops, I should have thought of that before buying filters I guess. Hope this helps some.
