Question about Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

1 Answer

My Cannon Powershot A1000 IS does not review pictures, zoom in, or register that I try to change the menu settings (or the flash, macro, ISO, or display setttings). My husband was taking video near the ocean and some of the water got onto the camera. There was only a little on the surface - just enough to warrant needing to be dried off with a towel. What can I do to get the camera working properly again?

My cannon power shot will not register that the flash is flipped up, so the flash will not turn on. How do i fix this


Are you sure you did not select flash off? This setting remains even when you switch off the camera. See basic settings page 14. If on top of the screen next to the ISO symbol is a flash symbol with a bar, you manually switched off your flash.

IM USING CANNON SX 210 IS MODEL MOST OF THE SHOTS WHEN IM ZOOMING ITS GETTING BLURED, ITS NOT LIKE HOW I EXPECTED FROM CANNON.


Make sure you are shooting in a mode with the flash enabled and that should enable the anti-blur features of the camera

I like to get up close pics of objects especially plants and scenery. The problem is when I zoom in the picture is always blurry and cannot focus on objects that are not far away. Is there anyway setting...


most cameras come with an option called macro,this setting is for close up shots.on your camera it needs to set at wide angle.when choosing the shooting mode move left or right and choose the icon of a flower.if you adjust the zoom, a zoom bar will appear at the top of the lcd.if you try to use a zoom not intended for macro shots the flower icon will gray out and the bar will appear yellow,if you take a picture with the yellow bar it will be blurry.if you zoom out a little until it stops you should be ok. if you use a flash in macro mode the images edges usually will darken.hope this helps.

Bad indoor pictures. When I take indoor pictures and it says to use the flash I do but then my pictures turn out dark/grey. Then I try it without the flash and they are brighter but then blury. I even...


The flash has a range of up to around 10 feet at the wide end of the zoom, down to 6.5 feet at the tele end. Maybe you are using it on to big a distance or at to low ISO? Try setting the ISO to 800 and see if it helps. images get a bit more grainy at 800 ISO but are also less prone to camera shake, if you use it without the flash. The camera goes as high as 1600 ISO, but images get very grainy at that setting.

Best settings for a concert w/Canon Powershot Pro1?


A few settings:
Set the ISO to 400. Set the light balance to TUNGSTEN... that will make the colors accurate.
and then set the dial to P and turn your flash OFF.
then when taking photos, be sure to hold the camera VERY STILL. movements are magnified while zooming so be patient.
Also take alot of pictures ... it's better to take alot and then be able to pick the real good ones and toss out the lousy ones..
Also, be nice to those nearby by turning the MUTE to ON in the menu...this turns off the beeps and clicks... You can also turn off REVIEW... and keep the display closed. This will make taking pictures quicker because you're not waiting for the display to review each shot.

Have fun...

Lost manuel to canon powershot A630 and I wanted to know how to take a black and white picture.


By pressing the center button on the four-way controller, you'll open up the Function menu. This menu has the following options:
  • ISO speed (Auto, High ISO Auto, 80, 100, 200, 400, 800) -
  • White balance (Auto, daylight, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, fluorescent H, underwater, custom) -
  • Drive (Single-shot, continuous, self-timer [2 or 10 sec, custom] -
  • My Colors (Off, vivid, neutral, sepia, black & white, positive film, lighter skin tone, darker skin tone, vivid blue, vivid green, vivid red, custom color) -
  • Flash exposure compensation (-2EV to +2EV in 1/3EV increments) - in manual mode you can adjust the flash strength in three steps (1/3, 2/3, full)
  • Metering (Evaluative, center-weighted, spot)
  • Compression
  • Resolution
