I wonder if your autofocus is having problems. It may never get a distance number and is just sitting there waiting for it to figure out how far things are.

There is no other real difference when taking close or far just the focus. If you take the camera and set it to manual focus to try and take some distance shots. If that works then that is the problem.

As far as fixing it that depends on the value of the camera. Unless it is one of the higher end cameras the cost of repairs will be more than a new replacement camera. If you have warrenty this is covered. So check out your warrenty, check out the repair cost estimate, and check out what a new camera will cost. If you don't want to spend the money then your only option will be to learn how to do a manual focus for distance shots. It isn't hard just take a little practice. Unlike close photo's distance ones are not that picky for focus.

How do i the camera to take smaller pictures and if it is by using the zoom do I zoom in or out.. Thanks


Hi sportingnut4 ,

Thanks for the question ,

  1. If you mean by smaller pictures i.e. small in area you have to capture the images keeping the distance in perspective.
  2. If the distance between the image and camera is more , you would find the object being captures is small and if the distance is less , you would find that the object that has been captured is bigger.
  3. If you want to capture an object which is far away you can use the Zoom In function which would zoom your camera's lens in the object.
  4. If you have already Zoomed in , then to decrease the zoom i.e. to go away from the object as if you are increasing the distance between the object and the camera , you should Zoom out.
  5. Remember , Zoom out usually only works when you have already used the Zoom in function of the camera.
Hope this helps.

Randomly, many of my photos are blurry.....


Looking at this camera manual I see that you can switch to PASM mode which I'm suggesting you use "P" Program. Also to get the best ( steadiest) photo's switch to the EFV (electronic viewfinder) there is a little swich just below and to the right of the viewfinder for switch from and too. it may have LCD/EFV on the switch A great idea for the very best photo to print is to use ISO 100 but this may prove difficult in some lighting situations try it and if you have some problems this can be changed to ISO 200 or higher but the higher the ISO number the grainier the pictures will become.
So a reap. Change to "P" program in the PASM mode. Switch to the EFV viewfinder, try ISO 100 but ISO 200 will work as well. What the big change is, is to use the Electronic viewfinder this brings the camera closer to your face and your arms are tucked into your body making it much more stable to hold. Happy New Year

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.

Area captured in photo different from area saw in viewfinder


Make sure you look straight through the viewfinder. Keep in mind that the area visible through the viewfinder is slightly smaller than the area captured in the photo. If you're taking a close-up or macro mode picture, turn the camera dial to the LCD mode so that you can use your LCD screen to preview your picture.
