Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Grainy LCD display

I just bought the Canon SD1100 and the pictures that are displayed on the LCD screen are very grainy and have terrible color quality. When I take a picture, the picture looks great. Is there a setting that I am missing or is the LCD screen defective?

Are you in night mode? Sounds like you are in a high gain setting, like ISO 3200 or night mode.

Unnatural colors and a grainy LCD display


Dear concern. It seems like that the lcd has been either burned out or has been hurt badly.. try checking it on another camera whether the result is same or not .. If the result is same then the manfufacturer has built-in lcd with low depth quality.

Hello, Cameras today are all rated as mega pixels. The higher the (MP) the more detailed a photo will be. Vivitars' higher end cameras are great, but their entry-level ones aren't. Sometimes when purchasing a budget camera, you may notice that the built in lcd (for preview) looks really grainy. This is because the manufacturer uses a cheap lcd display to keep the costs down. Now if the digital picture itself is grainy, then it's time to return that camera. I don't want to just blurt out a camera model to you because I do not know the age of your child and at what level of responsibility she has with fragile electronics. But generally speaking, Canon cameras are amongst the best. Whether it's an entry level model or a high-end model, these cameras are fantastic. Again, the image produced is rated by its MP.....anything over 3MP (which most cameras are currently) and you will be taking high quality shots. Honestly, I would look into Canon and pick one that is sleek and maybe her favorite color. You CANNOT go wrong with them, unless she breaks it. =) I bought one for my sister, one for my dad, and one for myself and am so happy with it. Sony has nice cameras too in this price range but did not have the same ergonomics features (to me). The best thing to do is stop by a BestBuy and play around with a few cameras. I hope you see what I mean when you hold a Canon in your hands. To be realistic, you should spend around $140-$200 max. I bought myself a Canon SD600 years ago, with I believe 6MP(which is pretty outdated) and I absolutely love it.
My advice to you is however cheap the camera, get her a Canon. =) Hope this helps.

Some cameras display a grainy picture in low light. Do you have the camera set to the highest number of megapixels and fine image or do you have it set to a lower resolution to get more pictures on the card?

I changed/lowered the ISO on the camera but all the pictures come out grainy and pixelated. It wasn't doing this a year ago when I bought the camera.


Go to the menu and look for "Reset Default" and that will reset your camera to the way it was. See if that brings the quality back ..

I bought a canon sd1100 a year ago. It used to take great pictures. One month ago all pictures taken have been grainy. Do you know why>?


Could be that ISO settings were accidentally changed. The main annoyances with high ISO setting are the noisy (grainy as you say) images. Check the iso settings if you are shooting in modes other than automatic shooting.

Lens blocked? Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS, recently water damaged


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Polaroid i1035: Bad quality pictures, appear grainy and fuzzy


The grainy effect has to do do with the ISO setting, try adjusting that. A higher ISO is generally better for darker conditions. I have noticed that this camera frequently takes grainy images.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W100 LCD viewer


do you guys have a grainy display, that makes it look like there are less color variations?

for example, if you take a picture of something that varies in color from one side of it to the other, with an infinite variation in one color to the next; do the colors separate into grainy spotches, as if it lost some color display capabilities? mine did this, if i took a picture of something that had different hues of one color, they would all flow together into one splotch, and upload fine.

so i sent it in and they said they "reconnected the lens-flex" among other routine things. problem fixed.

but then i sent it in again and they said they did the same thing, but the problem this time around was my capture-mode dial was glitching, the display was FINE. sadly they didn't do jack to fix the dial it and it still screws up. it will switch back and forth from adjacent modes without me turning it.

i'm happy with this camera but its a pain sometimes. if you guys have warranties send your units in ASAP to get it fixed for freeeeeee.

best of luck, i can't suggest anything beyond that.

My pictures display poor image quality on the screen or when you print them out.


PhotoPC 800 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.
