Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I can put in fresh rechargeable batteries and still get negative like or purple hue or black and white photos even when color shows on viewfinder. Is there a factory reset to wipe out any wrong buttons pushed? I take a lot of indoor shots in rapid succession...will it overheat and cause a loose solder connection>
It has been intermittently going down-hill slowly for 3 weeks. I have loved this S1-IS and it has never given me problems. PC 1058 (Japan) Serial 8724311117

I had the same problem and used the solution posted here (recall). They responded very fast and sent me an refurbished Canon Powershot S5 1S camera. I am not sure if I should receive the new one or insist my old one to be repaired.
