Stuck On Metering Modes

Hi, I do not have great knowledge when it comes to cameras, but I own a ixus 700 and the metering mode icon is on and no matter what i press i cannot get the green box that indicates focus to come on and then the flash to work. At the minute I have to turn the flash off to take a photo but the pictures are not good. My 2 year old daughter had the camera for about 30 seconds and this is the result, please help!!!

HI i have a canon ixus 700 it still take great pictures but when i try to use the flach on the camera it wil not take a picture please can you help


It's possible the camera is in one of the manual modes with the flash turned off. With the camera turned on and in the picture taking mode press the function button and look at the bottom of the screen. press the right or left side of the ring to highlite the auto setting then press the function button again.

Hi all, pls hep me to set up the date stamp on my canon ixus 75. i used to have it on my camera. Thank you


The date stamp only works in Postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the mountain with clock icon. "Postcard" will appear in the selection. Press Func/set.

Now press Menu, scroll down to Date Stamp and across to set date or date and time, then press menu again.

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it...


Ah yes! you have pressed the display button. Turn the camera on and you see the icons in the display, look for the Disp button and press it, the display will cycle through its modes icons, black, image and icons.

Canon IXUS 80IS - I can't turn the flash on


When this camera is in "Auto" mode the only flash functions available are Auto or Flash Off - in order to get the option of "Flash On" for all pictures you have to put the camera in "Manual" mode - to do this:

-Set the mode switch to the camera icon
-Press the "Func./Set" button
-Use the left or right arrow keys to set it to Manual mode (its icon looks like half a camera with the letter M beside it)
-Press the "Func./Set" button again to save your mode change.

Now when you press the flash button and cycle through the choices there will also be a "Flash On" option.

Ixus 750 Blurred photos shot at a distance greater than a meter.


Check to see that the camera is not in "macro" mode, which would only allow focusing at a close range, but not allow focusing at beyond about 2 meters (look for the "flower" symbol to tell you that macro is activated). Could also be an out of adjustment lens, due to impact or force. Also check to make sure it's not as simple as a dirty lens. Digital cameras are more succeptable to blurry pictures from a smudged lens than film cameras were. Of course, that wouldn't explain why close shots are OK but distant ones aren't. Probably the first two suggestions.

How do you use the continuous shoot function on canon ixus 70?


These instructions are for the IXUS 70, even though the category is PowerShot SD500/IXUS 700.

1. Press the down arrow (bottom of main control button)
2. Press the up or down button until you see the icon for continuous shooting, which looks like three squares overlaid on each other.
3. Shoot your pictures. As long as you keep the shutter button depressed, the camera will continue to shoot until the memory card is full.

To return to single frame shooting, follow steps 1. and 2. but select the single square in step 2.
