I bet the lighting was low. Sports mode pushes the camera to high ISO thus allowing less light in the camera. Most cameras suffer with low lighting anyway and high ISO really messes it up

Grainy pics Canon Powershot S3 IS


For most cameras, that's normal. There are a few high-end DSLR cameras that do well in low light but you pay a premium price for them.

My canon powershot s3 IS is taking really dark pictures. The only decent pictures I can take with it are outside in sunlight. Pics indoors come out dark and grainy. I flip up the flash, but most of the...


This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camera has recently started doing this ...

Why are pictures grainy, Photos are usually very crisp. This time every one was grainy like low res when I have it set on High. The camera is a Canon PowerShot S3 IS


Some people report that with an ISO setting of 200 or higher, there is graininess in the pictures, so check your ISO setting. I don't own one of these cameras, but there is a lot of discussion on the net about them. The following amazon discussion about the problem deals with a fellow who upgraded to the S3 from the S1. One problem was the ISO setting got bumped up, but another problem was the ISO was increased in the Sports Mode. See if any of this applies to your situations:

You need to check your ISO setting and the picture quality you have your camera set to. It should be at the maximum megapixels and fine quality and the ISO should be below 800 or even 400.

Grainy pics


When using sport mode the ISO jumps to 400 or more, and this is very noticeable in the grain of the picture. S3 renders good detail up to ISO 200. My advice: Set ISO to 200 in Tv mode, then set the shutter speed to 400 or something like that using the < > buttons. You have to try the best speed under the light you are. If the light is very good, perhaps you can use ISO 100 and get much better results.

How to overcome Grainy photos on some in door shots with my Canon A710


The reason for this is that the auto scene function chooses which ISO (light sensitivity) is needed to have a fast enough shutter speed to capture a still image (instead of a ghosted image). There is no way to change this. You can switch modes to P and specify the ISO you want to use (100-200 will give you a clear, non-grainy image, 400+ will be grainy). To capture a still image in low light with a low ISO, you need to use a tripod. Hope this helps.

Are you in night mode? Sounds like you are in a high gain setting, like ISO 3200 or night mode.

Grainy pictures


grainy pictures are possibly casued by a very high ISO (sensativity) setting, you should be on 100 or lower for best normal shots. Higher settings are for low light and custom shooting in strange lighting or aperature/shutter speeds. Try full auto setting.

Sport mode settings


Sports photography requires two things: Long zoom, fast shutter speed, and lots of light. Hey! that's three. Ok. So three things.

With your S3IS, you need to use a fast shutter speed to freeze the action (pitchers' arms go pretty fast!) - I suggest trying at 1/500, then 1/1000 second settings. Your camera won't select that automatically, so set the dial to shutter priority, and select that shutter speed. Then, with that shutter speed, you'll likely need to adjust other facets of your exposure to capture enough light. Zoomed in, you'll have an aperture (f/stop) of f/3.5 - or higher (remember: for f/stop, higher numbers = smaller iris, lower number = wider open iris). With your fast shutter speed, you're now fighting for light, so you need the smallest f/stop number you can get - which will be f/2.7 if you're zoomed out, or f/3.5 if you're zoomed in. If at 1/500 shutter and f/3.5 you still have a dark photo, try bumping your ISO setting up to 200 or 400. If you choose 400 or higher you will have a grainy picture. And will need to use a software noise reduction to clean it up.

With the suggestions above, you'll likely not be blurry, but you may be dark. If this is on a bright sunny day, you'll be fine. If this is at a ball park under the lights you may have different results.

Hope this helps...
