Can't change settings on movie option

My Canon PowerShot G7 is only filming in compact mode I don't know how to change it. It didn't always do this, but now when I download films they are compact and when I move them to imovie on my mac they are all grainy.

Hi there, I have a canon powershot sx130 and I don't know how to change the colour settings on it to black and white? If you could please give me the steps to do this it would be greatly appreciated!...


I have the SX10IS your options should be the same. You only have the option to change colors in the manual modes (on the dial; P, Tv, Av, M & C). Press 'func. set' button, on the menu on the left the second option down is a paintbrush that is the my colors menu, select it and you can scroll through to black and white. Also as an option most photo software can convert a color image to black and white.

Can i take movies with my canon powershot SD1100SI


Yes. Select the Movie mode (movie camera on tripod icon). Press the FUNC/SET button to select options, then press FUNC/SET again. Press the shutter release button to start recording, press the shutter button again to stop recording.

For full details, refer to the section "Movie Shooting" in the manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_sd_series/powershot_sd1100_is#BrochuresAndManuals

I have a Canon PowerShot A590 - still pictures are very clear. I took videos several weeks ago and they were very clear, now videos are blurry


Did you change your camera video's settings? There is an option where you can set it to a lower definition, like for videos. To change, choose the camera setting "Video" Then, Press the Left Or Right Arrows.

With camera dial on video, rotate the scroll wheel located around the direction button until Standard is selected. DO NOT push function set first like the manual says.

How turn off the flash on a Canon S30


Hopefully I'm not stating the obvious.... but all compact cameras have a menu system which allows you to change the various settings. Within the flash mode you will find options like ON/OFF, Auto or Manual. Might I suggest that you use the "Auto" option so that your camera will only use flash when the light is too low for it to register a photo. If you switch the flash off, you may experience the situation where the camera won't take a picture at all due to insufficient available light.

Having said all that.... should the flash still independently operate in OFF mode, then I feel you may need to take it in for repair.

Hope this helps

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for future recording.

Changing Movie Recording Pixels


I phoned canon customer service. They said that you must turn the dial around the function set key. It will then change the movie mode from compact to standard ... and then you will be able to change the resolution. When I did it, the resolution went back to 640, which is the resolution on which I had it previously. Well before the compact mode issue.
