You can download a copy of the manual from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=324&modelid=17480

The easiest way to control the shutter speed is to turn the mode dial to Tv (Time-value) mode. You then control the shutter speed by turning the command dial.

That's the "how". Now for the "why". I believe your main problem is the lack of light. In such cases the camera will slow down the shutter speed in order to get sufficient light to the sensor. A partial solution is to raise the sensitivity of the sensor. You do this by pressing the ISO button and pressing up/down to make your selection.

However, if there is not enough light, you just will not be able to get a sufficiently fast shutter speed. Depending on the situation, you can use flash, either the built-in one or an external unit.

The small sensor of a compact camera only makes it worse; the larger sensor in a dSLR will be more sensitive to light.

Flashing warning on PowerShot SX110


You receive a flash warning because the image does not have enough light for the aperture and shutter speed combination either you have set or the camera has set. There are several solutions. I can't seem to find whether that camera has a manual exposure mode or only auto modes. If only auto modes, refer to number 1 and the last two bullets.
Solutions.
1. Turn on your flash. If you do not want to use your flash....
2. If you have the ability to adjust your exposure settings
  • Open your aperture to it's widest ability. That would be a small number like 2.8 or 3.5
  • Reduce your shutter speed to about .125 Anything slower than that may introduce blur into the image depending on how steady your hands are.
  • Increase your ISO upwards toward 1600. Be cautious though. The higher the ISO, the more grain or noise is introduced into the image.
  • Do not use optical zoom (16x). Use only digital zoom (4x). You lose too much light at super zoom levels and the pic gets too shaky anyway.

How to chance shutter speed in canon sx 260


For direct control over the shutter speed, set your camera to the Tv (time value) mode. See the "Specific Shutter Speeds (Tv Mode)" section in the user guide (page 140 in my copy).

I cant take photos with long shutter. All of them results in totally white color no matter what ISO i set.


To take the kind of pic you want, you need a camera with manual control like a DSLR. You need to set the ISO to 100 and the aperture to f16 or f22 so that the shutter slows down to at least 1/4 second.

I have lost my manual for my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. Until I replace the manual, can you tell me how to delete pictures from the camera after I have uploaded them? Thank you!


Sure. The fast way is to format the memory card. As soon as you are SURE all your pics are downloaded, disconnect the camera and do a format. Fast and painless. Its good to format a camera occasionally anyway. No error checking. Even Locked photos are erased!!
