Go to the menu in the shooting (auto) mode; Find the BSS (Best Shot Selector) mode and turn it off. This should work.

That flashing hand icon is because you're currently using "no flash." Just change the setting back to "auto" (flash) and the hand will disappear.

Low shutter speed icon means that when you take photo the image will be blurry if camera moved.

Is there this icon when flashlight is turned on?

Cannot get the flash to work


The flash will not work in all modes
Make sure A (auto) is selected
The strange box you refer to may be the quality icon (a white box with a shaded box inside ?)
Try using a different flash mode instead of 'red-eye'
Make sure the battery is in good condition - try the mains adapter if you have one

How do I turn flash on and off?


The multi selector is the round control on the rear of the camera with the OK button in its center.
The flash mode button is the top button on the selector, it has a lightning flash icon.

Press the flash mode button on the multi selector.
Highlight the desired mode and press the center of the multi selector.

The flash modes are:
AUTO; Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor.
AUTO WITH RED-EYE REDUCTION; Reduces "red eye" in portraits.
OFF; Flash will not fire even when lighting is poor.
FILL FLASH; Flash fires whenever picture is taken. Use to "fill-in" (illuminate) shadows and back-lit subjects.
SLOW SYNC; Flash illuminates mainsubject; slow shutter speeds are used to capture background at night or under dim light

The selected flash mode icon appears at the top of the monitor.

What will i do if my camera is shooting in ligth my shot is white picture,


Hi rodalynnedel,

If there is more light in the background making the picture white then you need to turn off the focus of your camera or choose an auto focus mode , which will stop your camera's focus depending on the light in the background.

So I would suggest you you to switch off the flash and then check if it works fine for you.

When you have to turn of the flash you press the flash button with an arrow mark on camera and then select the icon which has a cross vertical line on the arrow , that is the mode which switches off the focus.

Hope this helps ....:) Let me know in case you have any queries, your feedback would be appreciated.

How do i turn on the flash?


On the menu there should be an icon that looks like a yellow lightning bolt with a red circle around it and a red line thru it (this means that the flash is off)....in the lower right hand corner you should see a white lightning bolt. Tap the red circle 2 times and you should notice that the yellow lightning bolt now stands alone and the red circle and the red line has been removed (now your flash is on). Note: Each time you turn on the camera and you need flash, you will have to make this adjustment...I hadn't figured out a way so that it happens automatically..


THANKS.

Red lighting in background of photo


Many digital cameras have different settings for the background color, my Samsung L200 for example has a setting that will make the pictures normal, black and white, sepia OR have a red, blue or green tint....you may want to check those settings... Otherwise... check to ensure the lense itself is not smudged... I have seen a smudged/dirty lense cause a similar issue.. what type of camera is it??

I get eyes that glow white in my pictures


bubba41, You didn't mention using the built-in pop-up flash that's when you get the "red-eye" and you can set the flash for redeye reduction when it's used.  If you are taking an indoor photo without the flash, if the redeye reduction is on turn it off that would eliminate the zombie or X-men eyes you are describing. randy320sgi

While I can't be specific for your camera the "Palm" sign normally indicates that "Anti-shake stabilisation" is operational and although you can normally turn it off it is preferable not to as it improves the quality of your recording especially when using long zoom.

Red Eye


There's two ways to reduce/eliminate the red-eye with your A570IS cameras. The first is at the time of exposure, by ensuring the red-eye reduction function is activated via the shooting menu (see page 28 of the manual). In shooting mode, press "menu", highlight the "tools" icon, and go down to "red-eye on/off". Toggle over to "on". That should take care of red-eye, in some, but not all cases. You can also remove red-eye after the image has been recorded (page 69 of the manual). You can isolate the red eyes if the camera doesn't automatically them for you. This should give you two shots at eliminating red-eyes. Another, often overlooked way to reduce red-eye is to zoom out and move physically closer to the subject, rather than relying on the zoom lens to get you close when shooting with flash. Hope this helps.
