Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture. However, I noticed that when I use the flash even if I am shaking the camera while taking picture, it still gives a clear picture. But when you shake the camera without using the flash it gives a very blurry picture. I prefer not to use the flash and would like to know how to modify the settings of my camera so that whenever I let other take my picture without the flash, it could result to a clear image. Can somebody please help me? I would really appreciate it! Thank you.

Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this.

Hi,
Best way is top set it on auto mode and keep cam steady while taking photo...
Other options are increase ISO, aperture and EV level bit increasing ISO will reduce quality of picture so try to set ISO till 400, And I will advised you to never go beyond 800...
Hope this has helped you,,, thanks...

Canon sd900 will only take pictures that don't require a flash


Press the "DISP" button. Button on the top right of the bigger circle control button.

You can turn off the display if you want to conserve battery and use the viewfinder. So you probably accidentally turned it off. You can use that button to turn on/off the LCD display or change between two brightness settings on the LCD.

Hope that fixes your problem.

Night pictures with out useing the flashon ansx10is


Don't scare the penguins.
Go to flash mode and switch off flash.
Alternatively, you can use manual mode and go for a slower shutter sheep anf full aperture, but this could make the photo fuzzy. U might need a tripod
Another alternative is to use a very high ISO like 800 or 1600. This will make the photo more grainy but if your hand is steady, you might be able to get your penguin.

Happy shooting

Canon PowerShot, SD900, Using AutoFlash, pictures takes 8 seconds


It takes quite abit of power to charge the flash module. The older your batteries are, or the more drained they are = more time it's going take to charge the flash module.
It requires fresh batteries. If your batteries are not fresh, the camera will still work up to a point (that's why you can still take pictures), but it will take longer to charge the flash module.

You will be able to check this, if you have the A/C adapter. You will find that by using the adapter from a wall outlet, you'll have no problem with the flash time.

This will fix your problem, and you'll get better performance from your camera. Thanks for coming to FixYa, and don't forget to rate my solution.

Blurry Pics and not able to set date/time


You can only set the date stamp in the “Post Card” resolution mode. Hit the “function” button, go down to the resolution selection (L, M, S, W, Postcard, etc.). Pick the “Post Card” setting. Hit the “menu” button and the “date stamp” menu will be active

Pink Edges in Photos


It is called 'purple fringing' or chromatic aberration. It is quite common with digital cameras, especially those with small sensors. Sending the camera in for repair would not help at all. It can be removed, quite labouriously, in photoshop. Usually it is very seldom so obvious that it would require corrective work. When it is, it is often only in a small part of the image making it not that time consuming to fix in photoshop.
