Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

3 Answers

Remote capture I was surprised to find after I had bought my A570IS that it does not support remote capture, although the wording on the CD supplied implies that it does. Is there any way it can be updated to allow it to run remote capture? Cnon is being very negative about it. Cheers

    Thanks to all who replied.
    I had just assumed (silly me!!)that as my old Powershot A40 had remote capture, that a newer version would have all the facilities of the older more basic model.
    Is there any way to lobby Canon to provide an update to the software(firmware?)to provide this useful facility?

    I really doubt they will release a firmware update that will enable it. Don't forget...they want us to buy a newer camera to replace out older ones...

Hi Dave
If your Camera supports remote capture, it should be on your CD. (the cd comes with the camera) if it didt install, you dont have the CD, or something happend, you can download it in this link.
Then if your camera supports remote capture, it shoud work fine.

    Dave i dont think they will make a new firmware for your camera, Anyway you can still use your camera while you wait untill they make that update.

The CD is a general CD that comes with different models of Canon cameras, some of which support remote capture. Unfortunately, your model does not and there is no firmware update or anything of the sort that will allow it to. Sorry.

How do I take a remote photo will the canon a450

One option may be to use CHDK firmware and a USB cable. Basically, you put the alternative firmware on the memory card and start the camera up with that, and it takes a picture when it senses a voltage on the USB port. There's more info about CHDK for the a450 here:
and about using it for remote capture here

Broken LCD on A570IS. Can I get a new panel? Quite capable of replacing by myself.

This could be a tricky one, the availability of parts will depend on the policy in the country that you live in. You should try Canon directly first, if they will not supply then you could try a local camera repairer who may have a good second hand one or be able to order the part for you.

I bought a remote for my nikon D3000, how do you use it?

Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes.

Quick-response remote snaps the picture as soon as you push the button. Delayed remote gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back.

It's an optical remote, so make sure you point it at the sensor on the front of the camera.

Canon A570IS lens frozen half way-no power

I have a a570 IS that the lense locked out on. fixing it was going to be the same price as buying new, so I took mine apart and after two tries, i fixed it. I would be willing to take a look at it for a heck of a lot cheaper than Canon can if your willing.

Anyone with this camera please read

FW upgrade is very easy: I have the same problem with the Display (after 8000 pictures) the LCD only works in Panoramic mode (or in remote capture mode when doing a remote capture from PC). In all other modes the camera LCD does not display anything. In order to upgrade the FW just connect the camera to your TV (using the cable that comes with the camera) The TV will the display the menu and you can do the FW upgrade. I upgraded the camera this way to FW 1.01 but unfortunatly the display problem still exists.
