Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD display works only in one particular angle and goes white in other angles

My PoweShot S3 IS LCD display works normal when its in a particular angle/direction. When i try adjusting it, it shows a white screen. But i dont have issues with my viewfinder. So what might be the issue? Can i solve it at home (Its warranty period is over)? Since it shows the white screen i feel the power supply to the LCD is ok but the data connection is a bit problematic.. This is jst a guess..

Why is display information having a ghost like after image when the camera is turned?

Perhaps some moist came behind the glass? perhaps some air? Try to live with it, because the result is what counts and the pictures don't have this problem. I think it will cost far to much to bring it to a service or repair centre. Use the money to buy a new camera what this no longer shoot pictures.

Looking for a wide angle lens converter for a S31S

They make some cheesy mount lenses that clip on the front of your camera. But if you ask me they are not worth the money. I needed to take wide angle shots at work and ended up having to upgrade to a SLR grade camera. Go to any electronics store or camera store and they will demonstrate what I am talknig about.

IstD LCD Screen...Problem

Resolution on the LCD is rather "rough," but I think all these tiny screens are that way. Considering the "roughness" of the photos in playback, and their sharpness when viewed full on on a computer, the text is about up to as good as this screen can produce. Or, in other words, I'm see'in what your see'in as for text. I think it's just normal.

By rotating the display, users can use it to view their subject when taking low-angle, high-angle, and a wide range of other shots. When closed, the multi-swing display also ensures carefree portability by protecting both the lens and the LCD screen. The IR-500 is the first Olympus camera to feature a multi-swing display with 360° rotation capability. It is especially useful in Self Portrait Shooting. The multi-swing display's 360° rotation capability makes it easy to shoot self-portraits as well as other people and scenery. Users can view themselves on the LCD screen while shooting, and use the camera's Self Portrait mode to ensure optimum exposures.
