Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Zoom lens noise in videos..

In video mode....i was playing back a very quick video i had just shot on my S2IS and i heard an extremely random noise on the video when i had zoomed in and out. I then put the camera to my ear and zoomed in and out...only the hear same noise again. Is it the lens motor? Unfortunately it is clear as day on the video.
I am very dissapointed, i have only owned the camera for about 1 1/2 and take extremely good care of it.

1 1/2 years, months, weeks? a little unclear.

you should not hear the zoom motor operate. you should not hear the result of its operation as elements move along.
you have a worn gear or contamination, or other defect. its probably minor. it happens.

return for service. its a good unit. but i would compare repair cost to replacement of latest comparable unit and then explore an upgrade option.

good luck

Shaking when in picture mode


What camera are you using? Generally, when a camera is zoomed in like a telescope, it's difficult to keep the scene steady. When photographing a still shot, the camera will in most cases compensate for the shaking by selecting a faster shutter speed. You can over-ride these in several ways, but that's for another message. When videoing, especially indoors, the camera will shoot at slower shutter speeds, and wider lens opening. Zooming in, like a telescope, creates the shake. Suggest that you shoot with the zoom all the way out (wide angle instead of telephoto), and get closer to your subject. Also placing the camera on a tripod or mini tripod, will steady the shot.

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

Water has got inside the camera and is causing the problems you have stated.
The battery is discharging quickly due to the water damage and the pictures you are able to still take have symptoms of over exposure, most likely caused by water in the lens.
The cost to try and repair would almost certainly match that of buying another camera. Just depends on who you send it to to have it looked at.

A grinding sound coming from inside the camera (PanasonicHVX200A)


If noise occured during while OIS function is on,then must lubricate the axis inside lens underneath the ccd block.Due to friction of the movement of the coil used for moving lens for optical stabilizing function makes noise,but if this is not the problem, camera board must be next suspect,so first clean and lubricate and after ask service for cost.So generally speaking ,the problem is on the lens unit ,or the camera board which drives it...

Focusing the 770


Tom, It's best to do the zoom first, then focus (if you are using the autofocus).
