Canon Ixus 95. When taking pictures of people with dark clothes, the face and background (a stone wall in this case) become white and undefined. Is there a solution?

Sounds like your camera is exposing for the dark clothes and over-exposing the face. You could set the "exposure compensation" down a notch or two in this case for a better exposure.

Hi im using Canon ixus 95 IS. How do i use it to take photos in the dark room or at night? Can i use it to take clear photos in the dark room?


Simple check - point any old Infra-red remote control at the camera. If you see a blue flash from the transmitting end of the remote wand, chances are you may be able to equip and use an infra-red illumination lamp. If there is a tripod mounting hole in the bottom of the camera, you may be able to find a packaged illuminator with bracket and compatible tripod screw post to make the camera an all in one, single handed device.

Many cameras are sensitive to near~ middle infra-red but incorporate a "hot filter" to mitigate the effects. Daytime exposures outdoors are FULL of infra-red background radiation that can upset the color balance of the photograph captured. Using an illuminator "saturates" the hot filter and the area in front of the camera, giving it a little help to "see" clearly in a low-light situation.

Whats the best setting to take pictures at concerts


Turn the flash off. Set the ISO to at least 800. Use auto white balance or set it to tungsten lighting. Set the metering to spot metering.

?Smudge on lens maybe? Shows up in pictures.


Hi!
Does the smudge changes / mooves as you zoom the lens? If so, the smudge is most likely on the focus lens, if not, there's something on the CCD. In both cases the lens will have to be taken apart and cleaned by a professional. I suggest you contact a local repair shop and see how much they ask for it.

If this occurs while the camera is in "Auto" mode, then this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

I had the same problem with the Canon PowerShot S410. I called Canon and they said it was a known issue. They are going to send me a return, paid postage label and replace the sensor at no cost. Canon rocks!
