A few possible causes:

1) You have a slow memory card. Borrow from someone one of newer fast SD cards and test it in your camera. Take your card to a store that sells cameras, and try shooting with their cameras to see if you get the same delay.

2) Slow camera. The only solution here is to update. Many camera review sites give timing how long it takes a camera to write an image to a card.

3) Camera settings. If you are shooting in low-light situation, camera takes longer shots. There should be a warning icon about this. Easy way to deal with this is to use a tripod, to put camera on something solid. Check for "Slow Synch" setting - set it to Off if you don't know what it is.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Are you in night mode? Sounds like you are in a high gain setting, like ISO 3200 or night mode.

You have likely set the camera to shoot photos in low resolution, or high ISO or both. Check your camera manual for detailed instructions on how to set these options.

If you don't have your computer manual, you can download one from this page at Canon.com. This is for the Powershot S500, this is the same camera as your IXUS 500, they just gave it a different name in different countries.

Always set the camera to shoot in the highest quality resolution mode. Memory cards are relatively cheap and you don't want to end up getting that photo of the lifetime but because you shot it in a low resolution mode you can't get a good print!

If you are shooting in low light the camera may be automatically boosting the ISO. There are only 3 ways to shoot in low light:

1) Flash - only works when your subject is relatively close to the camera.
2) Increase the ISO which results in noise in the dark areas of the image.
3) Use a tripod and a long shutter (slow shutter speed).

I have an Audiovox FPE3205 that the picture doesn't hold the clarity and gets blurry and grainy. Support said that it needed to be reset, but I've done that and still the same issue


I do not want to type the answer to this problem because I do not like to be the bearer of possible bad news. This television having been manufactured around 2006 may have reached the end of its life. As years go by, the picture quality on all LCD televisions diminishes.

Ok, ok, I got that out of the way first. Now forget that I just said all of that for a moment. This television will display a 720p resolution from its component input (green, blue, red, white, red). Make sure that whatever is connected to that input is only set to display images at a 1080i or 720p resolution. A wii or a regular dvd player not a bluray should look ok on the composite/RCA input. I'm not recommending the S-Video input for anything, and of course a computer can be connected to the VGA input still.

If the television looks bad even when displaying content on that 720p input then service can be considered and boards changed if you want to put money into this television rather than purchasing another one.

maybe you zoom in a lot and then it would be normal and if the pictures come out fine, i wouldn't worry about it but if the print pics come out grainy and blurry i would take it back if you have warranty

Polaroid i1035: Bad quality pictures, appear grainy and fuzzy


The grainy effect has to do do with the ISO setting, try adjusting that. A higher ISO is generally better for darker conditions. I have noticed that this camera frequently takes grainy images.

RCA r56wh78 rear projection screen is blurry


if you have little knowledge about electronics, you have to open the back of your tv and adjust the focus adjustment located at the back of the flyback transformer the large black colored like hard plastic... and if it is still not working replace the CRT socket....

Too much yellow in picture


The problem with the set is that the blue gun has gone weak, and not emitting at par with red and green guns in your picture tube. Turn of the blue screen and get the grainy display on the screen (detach the cable) and enter into service mode to fine tune until you get a perfect or black and white grain pattern.

Sony Cyber-shot Digicams - Picture Quality !?!?!?


I'm assuming you purchased a Sony as replacement. If that's the case, take it back and ask for a new one or have it checked out. Something sounds horribly wrong to me. If by chance you got one of those Chinese/Taiwanese cameras. Give it away and go back to the P72. Of course, a few hours reading the manual and playing with the camera may solve your problems. Don't try to get fancy first off. Stick with Auto modes until you get a feel for what you're doing. If you are using Auto the go back to the first sentence :-) BMW
