Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and it has lately started to take pictures in low res even when the settings are for Large, Superfine pictures. I am sure I'm not accidentally changing the settings because only some of the pictures in a given set come out in low res and I've checked the time they were taken and sometimes there are only a few seconds from one high res picture to a low res picture.
Could this be caused by cold weather? I just moved to New Hampshire. Also, I've noticed that sometimes when I'm out in the cold, some of the pictures turn out blue, just as if I had a blue filter.
Thank you for your help!
You should take your camera to service.
Normal cameras are meant to work above 0 deg C (32 deg F), but usually they work even at -15 C (5 F). When you work below the freeze point there may some anomalies, usually LCD turns blue or purple but photos look OK on a computer. Sometimes the camera refuses to take photos or shows bad focus, lens zoom mechanics get stuck etc. And you always experience significantly shorter battery life when in the cold.
It's a good idea to keep the camera in a warm bag and take it out before shooting. You can also keep it under your coat if you're not practicing a sport like skiing (because of body moisture).
