    The threads are plastic. I've read that other people have broken them, and was wondering if there is a way to replace the plastic mount with a brass mount.

Thats a bummer. I don't think there is. I would check with a camera shop. You might want to try some locktite and see it that works but you will probably have to keep the tripod mount permanantly on your camera.

Please advise how to close the battery cover


Hello and Welcomethe Canon A560's bottom panel is reasonably flat, with a sliding door to access the battery compartment and a threaded plastic tripod mount off in the opposite corner. The battery door and tripod mount are far enough away from each other to permit quick battery changes while working with most tripods To close the battery cover first Hold it and make it Flat and then by the tip of Your thumb Press it in inner side To demonstrate it the image is given below: angel_bird_0.jpg

I have broken the glass on the viewfinder of my powershot S3IS, can it simply to un-srewed and a replacement put in - if so where can I get one from?


If only the viewfinder glass is broken, you can put other one to replace it.

It could be glass but I do recommend you to replaced with an acrilic or a plastic part.

You can get it from different soruces: Ebay from a broken camera (S2, S3 or S5), or use transparent plastic film and cut it to the right size.

You don't need to open the camera completely. You will need just to remove the viewfinder rubber protector, and carefully, pull the viewfinder frame that holds the glass. There are four plastic locking tabs (two up, two down).

Best regards,

Technique on taking images of baseball cards


Greetings sandb27,

Your best route to avoid flash reflection on your cards is to find a lighting situation where you do not rely on flash. I would suggest a small handheld tripod to stabilize the camera and shooting without the flash. You might also try to use the Indoor Mode. Indoor Mode prevents camera shake blur and adjusts the white balance to preserve the subject's true color when working under tungsten or fluorescent lighting.


Thank You,

Agent Dort

Focus in Macro mode


1. Do not use the zoom while using macro. 2. When clicking the Macro button, click it again, only for 2 more seconds at the second click, it goes to 'Super macro' mode for zero distance. This works in the Canon S3 IS, I hope it will help you in the older S2 IS. 3. Use a tripod. 4. Use the timer for no movement when using a tripod. 5. Try using the manual focus, it does the trick when the camera doesn't focus automatically. Good Luck!
