Question about Canon PowerShot SD780 IS / IXUS 100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Our Canon Powershot SD 780 is having a focus problem.

Our Power Shot SD 780 IS is having a focus problem. When we turn it on in the AUTO mode, it scrolls to the macro focus and will not adjust to any other focus. We can not take any other pictures other than in MACRO. We have tried resetting and taking out the battery overnight.

Turn on auto focus and when you are taking a shot let Auto-Focus adjust the blurry image in the viewfinder beforeyou take a shot. If you do not know how to do it please let me know and I will give you detailed instructions.

Canon Powershot SX10 IS auto focus unreliable


I don't this its an error. I have used this Canon SX10 IS Camera for nearly a year now I haven't had this kind of problem.

Usually auto focus take few seconds to focus on object depending on distance and lighting. That might be the problem ?

I have a Canon Powershot SX100IS.It is the worst


If this is occurring in "Auto" as you say, then the particular camera that you have is defective. If a recent purchase, return it for exchange or refund. If that's not possible, call 1-800-OK-CANON for warranty repair. The SX100 IS actually is a VERY nice camera, and this is very uncommon for a Canon camera. Unfortunately, it sounds like you somehow got one that slipped through the cracks.

My Canon PowerShot SD1000 won't focus. Most


Sounds like you may not be in "Auto" mode. Press the "Func/Set" button, then press Right or Left to select the "Auto" mode.

Out of focus shot on Auto setting


Do you have it inn "macro" mode? See the little flower/mountain button on the back of your camera. Press it once until the mountain icon shows on the screen. This is for normal "distant" photos. Or press it once more until the little flower icon reappears. This is for extreme close-ups, like taking pictures of flowers. This sounds like what you probably had it in.

But really, your little camera can do so much more. Recommend that you take a look at this. It's an 8 mb download, but you should read it:

Look for the section describing "macro" shots. (or just select the little button with a flower on it on the back of your camera. Remember to deselect it when going back to normal pictures)

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Powershot S1 Digital Camera: Flash won't fire


Make sure the camera is not in Document mode . Document takes a picture with added contrast so text stands out. Make sure the camera is not set to Infinity focus . When you select Infinity Focus, the camera automatically turns off the flash and auto focus so you get sharp, clear pictures. Make sure the camera is set to Fill, Auto, or Red Eye flash. See your camera manual for details about setting the flash.
