Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

When I try to download pictures to computer I no longer get the menu. I have to manual bring up the EOS icon but that is as far as I get. It was working in February - don't know what happened. It is not my computer as it works with my Olympus camera.

You probably need to reload the software. Download the latest for your camera and operating system at
PowerShot® SD850 IS Digital Camera
This should take care of the problem.

Why suddenly all the pictures appear in black and white color.


You've probably got your camera in the black-and-white mode. Look through the viewfinder. Does it say "B/W" just to the right of the ISO?

If so, press cursor-down to bring up the Picture Style menu. Use the cursor keys to select the desired style and press SET. Full details are in the "Selecting a Picture Style" section of the manual (page 73 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_rebel_t1i_ef_s_18_55mm_is_kit#BrochuresAndManuals

If you're not in the black-and-white mode, please feel free to reply to this post. Please specify the picture style(s) you're using. Are you seeing B/W on both the review and when you download your pictures?

I cannot download photographs from eos 400D - says the device is unknown and USB is malfunctioning. It has been more than 6 months since I last downloaded photos and I had no problems. NOthing has...


Well, yes something has changed if the computer you are using is connected to the internet then it has had several auto updates to the software and or security anti virus.

Okay here is what I'll suggest. Uninstall the camera software and reinstall, go onto the Canon web site and download any (all) firmware updates for your camera and bring your camera back up to date.

Down load your pictures as normal.

If this doesn't work purchase a memory card reader and step around the camera all together, the card reader is plugged into a computer USB port and the memory card plugs into it. Make sure you get a card reader that has the correct port for your memory card.

The computer looks at this card reader as an external hard drive or Mass Storage Device.

You can then download your pictures to a file folder on your computer and open that folder in the camera software.

Myself I don't use the camera software it's generally clunky and offers far less control over the picture then what the industry standard for image manipulation offers.

Any Photoshop program from Elements to CS5 will offer far more control then any camera software. The nice thing about a card reader and Photoshop is that you can change cameras and the programing and card reader stay the same. This system doesn't care what name is on the wrapper (camera)

Cheers have a great time with your camera

Canon EOS 1000D will not connect even with solution disc instaled


To find out if the computer recognizes the camera, go to start>computer and see if the camera is listed. If it is, you can double click the icon to open it. Double click on the folder(s) until you get to the pictures. Click on the first picture, scroll down to the last picture and while holding down the shift key click on the last picture. Now right click on the pictures and you will get a menu. In Vista you can select copy or move them to a folder. In XP you will have to select send to>documents then move them to a folder. As for the program you installed, if it didn't leave a short on your desktop, go to start>all programs and look for it. If it's not there, it probably didn't install correctly.

Switched to MAC - have EOS40D and SX100 - will not download SX100


Yes, you need to install the SX100 driver software as well. I wouldn't overwrite older versions of the Canon software, though, so do a selective install if you can.

Canon Rebel EOS - Pictures download read Low Resolution


Canon Digital Rebel cameras let you set the image resolution from small jpegs (low resolution) to large jpegs (high resolution) to RAW (best quality, but require post-processing in your computer before you can print them). It's possible that as you were getting to know your camera you accidentally set the image size and quality to a low setting. Now you just need to change it back!

You make this change in the on-screen menu, under the camera menu (first menu, with a camera icon), first item (Quality). Although Canon no longer has the manual for this camera online, you can see This Review Page for more details on where to change this setting on your camera.

New computer. No Canon sofware. Canon Rebel EOS purchased second hand. Where can I get the software to download the pictures?


Hopefully you have the EOS Digital Rebel. (The EOS Rebel was a film camera.) Without the software that came with the camera (ZoomBrowser EX for Windows or ImageBrowser for Mac), you can only download JPG images using the PTP communication mode. The communication mode is set up in the Menu system on the camera, and is either "Normal" or "PTP". If you want to download RAW files, you will need to use a software application that has a converter for Canon RAW files (Photoshop, etc.). If you didn't get a User's Manual, you can get one here.

Canon Rebel XT EOS won't erase pics


If the image has a small icon of a skeleton key along the bottom when viewing it, it means the image has been protected. You have to un-protect the image to erase it. This is done from the Playback Menu (the one with the arrow on the tab). Specific instructions are on page 115 in the manual. (Manual is available here if you don't have it.)
