The stabilization is not for moving objects! To freeze a picture of a moving object, you need to raise the shutter speed and open the apature accordingly. Refer to the light metering in the camera for proper exposure. For faster speed, you really need more light.

The stabilization is for when you hold the camera. It helps prevent camera movements by the photographer to show in the pictures.

Just take care that the image stabilization has its limits.

New batteries are not lasting longer than a day


Battery life can fluctuate greatly from day to day. It all depends on the type of photography you are doing. For example, on one day, you spent the day taking pictures outside in the sunlight, with no flash, and didn't use your camera's screen to review any of the pictures. The next day, you spent the day inside, taking lots of pictures using the flash, zooming in and out on people's faces and reviewing the pictures using the camera's screen.
Features like the flash, zoom, LCD screen and image stabilization (IS) use a great deal more battery life than if you were to not use any of those features. This could explain why it suddenly seems like the batteries aren't lasting more than a day.
However, if your photography habits have not changed enough to potentially affect battery life, there could be an issue with either the image stabilization hardware or the standby mode of the camera. If the image stabilization (a fully mechanical feature) is malfunctioning, it could be activating when it shouldn't be, such as when the camera is on but you aren't about to take a picture.
I would try testing the camera by taking pictures using different camera settings.
  1. Turn off the flash and image stabilization, use the viewfinder instead of the LCD live view mode, do not zoom in or out. Take as many pictures as you can before the batteries die.
  2. Keep the flash and image stabilization on, use the LCD live view mode, use the zoom frequently. Take as many pictures as possible before the batteries die.
With test #1, you should see much better battery life than with test #2. If you still experience decreased battery life either way, there may be a hardware issue with the camera. Should this be the case, contact Canon Support to find out whether or not your manufacturer's warranty covers this problem.

How to overcome Grainy photos on some in door shots with my Canon A710


The reason for this is that the auto scene function chooses which ISO (light sensitivity) is needed to have a fast enough shutter speed to capture a still image (instead of a ghosted image). There is no way to change this. You can switch modes to P and specify the ISO you want to use (100-200 will give you a clear, non-grainy image, 400+ will be grainy). To capture a still image in low light with a low ISO, you need to use a tripod. Hope this helps.

Exilim digital camera EX-Z850/image stabilization


This camera is going to shut that feature off each time you shut the camera off. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to "lock it" in on this model. Sorry.

It won't take a photo with flash


Ah! I just figured it out. I read that the image stabilization doesn't work as well with a flash, so I turned it off. While in camera mode (not play mode), hit Menu, then scroll down to IS Mode. There are a few options. I chose "Off." And I was immediately able to take a photo. I'll play around with the other options (Continuous, Shoot Only, Panning). Now my only problem is that I JUST changed the batteries about 10 minutes ago and it's already telling me to change them again. Ug.

Canon Power Shot A710 is


The hand with parenthesis is your image stabilization. It sounds like if your images are turning out black, you may need service.

Try hitting your display button a few times and see if anything shows up on the screen.

Image Stablization not functioning


Image stabilization cannot correct for movement of the subject (fan). Image stabilization only corrects for movement of the camera/photographer. If you take a picture of the ceiling fan with the flash turned on, or set the ISO to a higher number, you will see that the fan is less blurred because you have increased the shutter speed.
