Very very bright pictures outside and lines thu the inside ones
I have a Cannon Power Shor 7.1. It is brand new. When I take pictures outside, they are all flashed out, so bright, I can barely make out an image. When I take them inside, there are lines thru them and the are not clear at all and it looks like the flash was also taken. They are on the bright side also. I am very frustrated. I am on vacation in Bangalore India and cannot take pictures. I bought the camera because it is suppose to be one of the best. It is not in this case. Is there some place here where I can take it? Please advise or help me. Thanks to whoever answers me.

Hey there uncle ed,
you have a problem with your cameras exposure. you should also disable nightmode if this camera has it.
usually when we take pictures outside, the camera is in auto focus and auto exposure mode so that you'll not get pictures that are too bright and unrecognizeable...but this is not the case with your camera.
please check with the camera settings about exposure and please check the manual that is with it since its still brand new.

When you go outside, do you change anything in the settings? I think the camera should be in the auto, sport or something like that. If it is not in auto but in the night Scenery, night Portrait or high Sensitivity, pictures inside, with less light will be ok, but outside they will be over blown.
I have an A310, and really like the quality of the pictures and videos it takes. But what you describe is not unusual for this particular model camera. Lag between shots in bright sunlight is usually minimal, but may be very pronounced in darker conditions. It's caused by inefficient and slow charging of the camera's flash capacitor.
There's nothing you can do to modify the design of the camera to change this. But you can try to minimize this some by using batteries with higher power rating. Alkaline batteries will not work very well in this camera, even if brand new. Would instead recommend that you consider rechargeable NiMH batteries. They run about $7 these days for a package of four. But they'll save you big bucks in the long run. Look on the package for power rating of 2,500mah or better.
Metering has gone on the .Can you set the camera to Aperture priority or speed priority?Set to either permanently if you cane then you should get a standard exposure.
The inside shots may appear dark, but all the information is there and a treak in an image editor will brighten them up.
Cant do the same for too bright images though if they burnout then that's it.
a repair is not likely
got a birthday any time soon
Got some one that luvs you enough to buy you the next one.?
Sounds like a major problem and not one which could be tackled on line. If your camera is still under warranty, return it quickly. If not I hope you have deep pockets. You are suffering from either a faulty iris control or faulty video board. With perhaps a little CCD problem to help things along.
