Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pictures in sunlight washout

Just recently pictures that I take outdoors with the S2 IS wash out. Not just weak colors, but a white image. It just started, so it wouldn't seem to be a setting issue. I've tried adjusting with manual settings, but it continues. Is there a known problem that occurs after time?

    My camera started out with just a black screen with only icons showing. After changing batteries and turning it off and on the camera has started working again. However, it will only take indoor pictures, everything outside comes out almost white. I have tinkered with every setting to see if I changed anything attempting to get rid of the totally black screen. Canon was not help, they said to mail it in for repairs.



    So frustrating

    I too also had the black screen problem. I somehow fixed that and now after not using the camera for 2 months, I now cannot take pictures outdoors. I have reset to the default mode and nothing has changed. I noticed when looking at the pictures in the computer, there are lines of light and dark. I will be taking it to the local camera shop for suggestions.

Weird colors in viewfinder


Sounds to me like a CCD problem, which is a bad thing. CCD faults were quite common in the early S2's. It would be worth contacting Fuji about.

can you insert a few images into the thread to have a look at. Need more than one to check consistency of problem.

Canon S2 is washed out pictures


Just when I thought my camera was fixed I started experiencing the same problem with my S2 IS. Don't know if it is any help to finding the solution but the camera works fine outdoors when used in video mode.

Colour tone issues with Fujifilm Finepix S5700


It sounds like the sepia tone is most likely caused by the tungsten lights in a regular room. Without flash, the only source of illumination indoors is artificial light (unless window light is dominant). There is a way to color balance the camera to approximate sunlight through the manual settings. Look in the menus for "white balance". You'll need to take the camera off of the fully automatic settings first. Move the cursor up or down while looking at the image and you will see the color shift. when you find a color balance you like for that particular room's lighting conditions, hit the OK to lock it in the activated position. Remember to go back to "auto" white balance for most shooting, especially outdoors, or everything will take on a wierd color cast.

Picture White Out


Your problem may be an easy fix. Assuming you don't know much about cameras, have you checked the ISO setting? For an outdoor photo the ISO needs to be at a lower level or the result is a white out.

Pictures are too bright when shooting outdoors in sunlight


Have you tried changing your settings manually to outdoor? Or adjusted the aperture? You can usually find the aperture settings under the menu button. If not, try adjusting to outdoor conditions and disabling flash. And also, lower your white balance a good bit.

Pictures have cyan color cast


Check your "white balance" (WB) setting.Try setting to "auto" and see if you get the same results shooting outdoors on a sunny day. If you do, the camera is in need of repair, if you do not, you need to buy a book on digital photography to supplement your manual.
