This is a menu setting, in capture mode it is the slow synchro option I think. What it does is try to get the subject to have a lit background. Turn this off and you get a subject lit with flash and no background but no blurriness either.

My canon powershot s3 IS is taking really dark pictures. The only decent pictures I can take with it are outside in sunlight. Pics indoors come out dark and grainy. I flip up the flash, but most of the...


This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camera has recently started doing this ...

Took pictures of sons prom and pictures are blurry blown up, why??? I believe I shot them in sports mode....


Sports mode is meant for constant or fast movement. Its used mainly for sporting events.

The mode you should keep it in is Auto. In this mode you will see that there will be no blurry pics.

My pictures turn out blurry


try using a camera tripod or leaning against something sturdy, like a building or tree, especially when really zoomed in! As the light dims, the camera will choose a slower shutter speed and/or wider aperture (in automatic) to produce a picture that is not too dark. As a result, the camera may take blurry pictures, especially if the camera or subject moves. There is a setting for landscape, which uses a very small aperture, and just about everything from close to far away can be in focus. Hope this helps!

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

Pictures are blurry


this is a symbol for a low light condition. Either increase the light by opening curtains using in-direct light or just use a flash.

BLURRY PICTURE


Shoot a faster shutter speed.  Push the button gently and hold the camera very steady.  Use a flash or higher ISO in low light.
