Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have to shoot a video within a fast-approaching time frame HOW

I've misplaced the darn Manual for my POWERSHOT S3 IS so no idea how to video except press the video button. I'd rather be prepared because this may be only a once p/yr. opportunity. I've not videod before but done photog. I have to shoot BUGS . BUGS DANCING. Yes. So they're smaller than recording a mountain or a person etc.! I probably don't need to use my Macro-Macro feature but will have to get approx. 8-12 inches from subject. Can I keep the camera steady? or a tripod? Do I have to provide auxiliary lighting although can film in daylight. I have to ah-hem, also record my voice singing, because they won't dance unless I sing and it has to be the right song. So, does video automatically sound-record? Is it possible to instruct me for this? Just a basic step-by-step approach? I'd appreciate it!

Turn the selection knob on the top of your camera to an icon that sorta looks like a video camera on a tripod, then push the record button to record.Video mode autonatically records sound. You might want to add auxilliary kighting if shooting indoors.

Good Luck!

Press the macro button, marked with a flower. See the "Shooting Close-Ups" section in the basic manual (page 12 in my copy). If you need the manual, you may download it from here.

When I shoot a video on my A530 in playback it runs at almost twice real time speed,is this adjustable?


Yes, it sounds like you're in "Fast Frame Rate" video mode. Turn on the camer to video mode, then press right/left to select normal 640 pixel video.

Canon S3 IS - Images are darker or underexposed even in normal ambient light. Started happening just recently


If you are shooting using AUTO mode, maybe the settings were changed to a manual modes. If so, check for settings. Flash fires automatically only in AUTO. On manual modes you must force the flash to fire.

Hello! I have a Power Shot SD400. I was wondering if there was any way to change the duration/length of the videos you record. On mine I am only allowed to record 1 minute at a time. Is there a way to make...


The camera will only shoot up to one minute in "Fast Frame Rate" mode. You should press the function button and use the left/right buttons to switch it to "Standard". This will allow you to shoot until the card is full.

Very long lag time to shoot and between shots... sometimes!


hello again after researching i did find out that there is about a 3 second delay if using the flash option did any of your delays happen when not using the flash ? also does this happen when using the camera in auto mode ? turning the knob on the top to the green auto mode i'm thinking it also could have to do with your shutter speed or try going to the menu and changing the shutter speed to a faster speed your self then taking pictures in av or tv mode. here's a comment from a review on the PowerShot a590 that might help. Camera performance is very good. The PowerShot A590 is ready to shoot after a 1.2 second delay -- pretty snappy. Focus speeds were very good, even in low light situations. Shutter lag wasn't a problem, and shot-to-shot delays were minimal, except when you're using the flash, which is slow to charge. The camera can shoot continuously at 1.5 frames/second until your (high speed) memory card is full. The A590's battery life is 10% better than its predecessors, and is well above average for its class. The camera supports the USB 2.0 High Speed standard, for fast data transfer to a Mac or PC.
and if you still have the problem with out the flash then the only other solution is a faster flash memory card there's cards made just for digital camera's that store pictures and format quicker.
hope this helps your enjoy your camera.

No sound, video is too fast


You've got it on time lapse video. Turn it on, slide to video, press func. set then toggle to standard. Sounds like you all are like my mom. Don't have a clue how to use your camera or how to trouble shoot via an owners manual :)

Canon PowerShot SD 870 IS Movie playback speed is too fast!


You've got it on Time Lapse video. Turn on, slide to video, press func. set button, toggle to standard instead of time lapse. Maybe next time try your owners manual. Of course you all are probably like my mom and just get a new camera, put in the batteries and start taking pictures. These stupid expensive cameras have too many options and get messed up too easily with the wrong press of the button. Try a simple cheap on next time.

How do I set a Canon PowerShot S3 IS so the date appears on the photo when I download it and/or print it?


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
