This is either the Burst mode or the Burst-2 mode, here is how to disable it.

Camera takes two pictures each time - ecddd77.jpg
click on the Mode Selector

then using the up and down arrow, look for an option that says "Normal" this is on page 55 and 56 of the manual

for other features on the unit you may refer to the manual below

http://www.vlerick.be/helpdesk/our_services/borrow/manuals/DSCP72.pdf

if the issue still persists, just locate the RESET BUTTON near the USB port then pres sit for 3 secons, and all your settings will be back to normal / factory default settings.

good luck

hope this helps

There is a delay from when I push the button to take a pic and the actual pic of a second maybe. How to get pic in the moment?


The delay is caused by the flash charging. Put the camera in Program mode (P on your dial). This is similar to Auto, but you can turn off the flash. Press the button with the lightning bolt by it until you see the same icon but with a slash through it in your LCD screen.

Now keep in mind taking pictures this way will often result in blurry pictures because you're overiding both the Autofocus (by pushing all the way down on the shutter instead of first half way), and the flash (you may need to keep the camera extra steady in low light situations).

Pictures are coming out blurry


On digital cameras it is always best to press the button half way down before taking the picture. This helps the camera focus, thus preventing blurry images. Always, always press the button half way down. Secondly, if you are still getting blurry pictures, there is a possiblity that the sensor in your camera is bad. I don't know how old your camera is or how long you've had it, but you would need to send it for repair, exchange it, or if it's under warranty maybe they'll send you a new one.

Canon Power Shot SD 400 Digital Elph - image not on screen


On most canon elph cameras you can either go through the menu and reset back to factory default and this might solve the black or white screen. If that does not work you should be able to hold the menu button down for several seconds until a reset prompt pops up. You will then click on yes for reset and this should completely reset the camera and the screen should be back to normal.

Does camera have timer


Putting Yourself in the Picture The Self Timer creates a 10-second delay between the time you press the Shutter button and the time the picture is taken. 1 Place the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod. 2 In any Still mode, press the Self Timer button. The Self Timer icon appears in the status area. 3 Compose the scene. Then press the Shutter button half-way and hold to set the exposure and focus, then press the rest of the way down. Move so that you are in the scene. The Self Timer light blinks slowly for 8 seconds (then quickly for 2 seconds) before the picture is taken. The camera "clicks" when the picture is captured. To turn off the shutter sound, see page 64. The Self Timer turns off after you take the picture or if you change modes. To cancel the Self Timer before the picture is taken, press the Self Timer button. (The Self Timer setting remains active.) To turn off the Self Timer, press the Self Timer button twice.

I want to have the camera take a pic of my family on its own


Yes. You can even choose between 2 seconds and 10 seconds. Put the people in the shot. Focus the camera on them by holding the shutter button down halfway, and without releasing the shutter button, press the button all the way down to start the self-timer. (That's what the manual says. I go into the menu on the camera and set it up that way.) To do it from the menu: when the camera is on, hit the menu/ok key. The self-timer mode will pop up. Hit the right arrow. Here you can choose between the 2 and 10 second timer options. Select one. The timer won't start until you have pressed the shutter button halfway to focus and press the shutter button all the way down as stated earlier.

Close up pics with canon S3 IS


To get the sharpest possible pictures always mount your camera on a tripod.
Step 1 set your S3 camera to Program mode using the wheel control on top of the camera to P position.
Step 2 Press the function button on the rear of the camera, you will see a list of settings appear on the left side of the screen, you can scroll down through each of those settings using the up/down buttons of the up/down/left/right control on the back of the camera.
You can change the settings using the left/right buttons of that same up/down/left/right control. If you change a setting press the SET button to implement the change.
Set those settings as follows.
The top one set it to Zero
2nd one set it to AWB
3rd one set it to OFF
4th one set it to AEB (the center setting) then press SET button. your camera will now take 3 pictures each time you press the shutter, each at a different exposure setting so you can choose the best one.
5th one set it to Zero
6th one set it to Evaluative
7th one is video mode it is not neccessary to change this for taking stll pictures.
8th and last one, set it to L then press the SET button it takes you to a second option set this to S then press SET button again, now the display for that setting should show SL ( this sets your camera to use the highest resolution settings)

Now you have your camera set up you can get ready to take your pictures, press the function button again to close out the settings list.
Keep your camera in Program mode (P on the wheel control)
If you want to take close up pictures,
Press the macro button located on the left side of the lens close to the body of the camera it has a flower icon above it.
On your camera screen you will see it say macro, this is for close ups.
If you hold that same button down for about half a second it will change to super macro mode for extreme close ups. This allows your camera to focus on objects very close to the camera lens.
Position your camera as close to the subject as neccessary to make it fill the screen.
Now if you are using a tripoid, press the shooting mode selection button located just behind the shutter release button, each time you press this button you will see a different shooting mode appear on the screen. Press it repeatedly untill it says Self Timer. This mode allows you to press the shutter release then let go of the camera altogether so you will not cause camera shake. the camera will beep and take the picture several seconds later.
I would strongly recommend you use a tripod but f you are not using one ignore that last step and try to hold the camera as still as possible while you take the picture. If you follow those instructions you should get good sharp pictures.

With the camera on, push the mode button 5 times. The window will show a square with a dark circle in it, and a diagonal line through. Hold the shutter button (that you take a picture with) down until the camera "beeps". This will erase all the pics in the camera. To erase the last pic taken, push the mode button 4 times. This gives you a square with a lighter circle and diagonal line - hold the shutter button until it beeps.
