Canon g11 telephoto lens vignette

When I add the telephoto lens to my G11, the screen on the back of the camera only shows a small circle with the picture in it. If the lens is made for the camera why am i not able to take pictures that are not inside a tiny circle? Can you help? Rose

You have to zoom the camera lens out for that lens to work.

SOURCE: I have seen a add

It is an inexpensive lens. It's actually a 650-1300mm lens with a 2x tele-extender to take it out to 2600mm. It's slow, manual focus, without any form of image stabilization, and with no electronics so setting the exposure is also manual. It won't be as sharp as a Canon 600mm lens, for example, but it is a lot cheaper. Also bear in mind that the 2x tele-extender will cost an additional 2 stops of exposure, so with it attached the the already slow lens becomes a very slow lens, giving a very dark view through the viewfinder.

I have a powershot G11. I charged my battery and when I put it back in the camera it won't power on

The G9 has a design defect with screws that loosen, fall out, and short out the camera. I don't think the G11 has this problem, but it is most likely the fuse on the DC/DC board that has 'blown' causing there to be no power.

I'm not sure how much the part costs, usually about $30-40. We repair the no power problem for the Canon G9 for $85 incl parts, installation and return shipping of the camera.

G11 powershot 'Lens Error restart camera' mesage when I turn on the camera. Camera stuck with lens out.

Lens probably does not retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

How do O get to the RAW setting on my G11

Once you have the camera turned on and ready to shoot, press the "FUNC SET" button (the middle button on the dial next to the screen). Then scroll the menu all the way down to the last option to the "Resolution" Option. Once in here, scroll right until you see the "RAW" option, and press the "FUNC SET" button once again to set it. When you next take a photo, it will save a copy in JPG and one in RAW format. Hope this helps!
