Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Weird tint and very blurry images

When looking at at the LCD or thru the eye piece, the images have a weird tint to them and look very blurry. When the picture is taken, the images have the same weird tint and but are more blurry. The tint is almost a sepia, but not quite. Any ideas what might be wrong? Do we need a new camera?

Canon rebel xt 1. image looks blury in eye

1. The viewfinder's diopter is probably out of focus (doesn't affect Auto Focus of photos). There's a dial and a +/- symbol next to the viewfinder. Turn the dial till you can see clearly through it. Alternative reason: The glass in the viewfinder is dirty/foggy. Use camera cleaning solution (a drop) on a cotton bud to clean it.

2. Malfunction needs Canon Service Centre to take a look at.

At the bottom of the eye piece there is a little slider than you can move up and down to adjust the focus. That should fix your problem if not then you are not looking into the eye piece close enough make sure your eye is pressed up against the little rubber pad and then adjust the focus.

I have lines on the image when I look thru the eye piece

which camera is it, is the eye piece a lcd screen or optical?

if the pictures come out ok on the PC it sounds like a faulty screen, If the camera is still under warranty it should be covered if not unless its an expensive camera its probably best to live with it as a repair would be quite pricey

if the pictures have lines on when displayed on the PC its a main board or CCD fault, both expensive.

Blurry Viewfinder

There is a small sliding lever on the side of the eyepiece to adjust the built in diopter for your eye.

Player, could you be more specific on the symptoms. Does the image also look blurry on the LCD. Any weird colors? And please reconfirm that you have a Canon SD200 (SD Card) and not an S200 (Compact Flash Card).
