Hello, I would like my pictures to have a white background. When I take the picture on a white background the background ends up looking gray. I am taking pictures of baby clothing and I want the clothing...


Exposure meters are designed on the premise that the scene is an average, middle gray, in brightness. If you take a picture of a white dog playing in the snow, the camera will try to make the picture come out middle gray (a gray dog playing in gray snow). If you take a picture of a black cat sitting on black asphalt, the camera will try to make the picture come out middle gray (a gray cat sitting on gray ground).

If the white background is dominating the scene, the camera will reduce exposure to try to make the entire scene come out middle gray. The solution is to meter on something else. Move in close and fill the frame with the subject, press the AE-LOCK button, then move back, compose the picture, and take the shot. For full details, refer to the "Shooting with the exposure locked --- AE-LOCK" section in the manual (page 52 in my copy).

If you're taking a lot of pictures, you might want to switch to Manual mode and set the exposure accordingly.

How do I change the settings to take pictures in Black & White? Thank you


From the shooting menu, select "Color." You can select "B&W" for black-and-white, or "Sepia" for the old-fashioned brownish look. For full details look in the manual under "Shooting menu." It's on page 32 of the online version of the manual available on the manufacturer's web site at

Outdoor pics completely washed out Cannon S5 IS Power shot


Try going into the review menu, choose setup and then choose 'reset all' This should re-set all shooting settings to automatic and solve the problem. If that doesn't do the trick, your sensor is probably damaged - not good news - sorry

White Exposure when shot


you say.. "used to" does that mean it doesn't do it now?

overexposure is caused by setting the wrong ASA ( film speed) oon digital you set the ISO which is the digital equivalent.

GO TO MENU and set ISO to auto and WB (White balance to auto) EX(IT

See if that imoroves the outcome.

some ISO settings in models akllow individual selections of numerical values for different lighting.
ISO 64, 120, 250, 500, 1000. etc

1000 is for very low light (fast film ) 64 is for brighter conditions like average daylight

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
