Trying to change the resolution of the pictures taken from fine to less pixels so the file is not so large


The available menu items vary depending on the camera mode.
The shooting menu is available only in the shooting mode, and the viewing menu is available only in the playback mode. So set your camera to shooting mode and press menu. In menu you will find image size for still image. Set up as you prefer. If you don't have a manual. Find it in the link below.

I have a cannon power shot s1 is. When i look through the view finder or on the lcd monitor i get a very distorted image it is very dark like looking at somthing in the early morning fog.


Press display (DISP.) button to turn the display on. This button is located on the rear of the camera and toggles the camera's LCD display. The button is usually printed with <DISP.> on the button or above the button depending on the model. display_button.gif If pressing the <DISP.> button doesn't turn the display on, remove and replace the batteries in the camera. If this still doesn't correct the issue ..then there what cannon says to this error :

It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensors used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments.
Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.
U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is preferred, please send your email to carecenter@cits.canon.com
This information is for residents of the United States of America and Puerto Rico only. If you do not reside in the USA or Puerto Rico, please contact the Canon Customer Support Center in your region.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this issue, and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Thank you for your support and patronage of Canon products.

My canon eos 100D wont's show the image on the screen. it will take the picture when looking through the view finder, but i would like it to appear on the screen. pleae help


Unlike compact point and shoot cameras, Canon's range of EOS D-SLRs don't have the LCDs stay on all the time. The design of the SLR camera involves a mirror in front of the sensor. The mirror in its normal position inhibits the image to be captured by the image sensor. When you shoot, the mirror flips up for a split second and back to its rest position.

To use "Live View" (composing shots with the LCD), there is an option in the Menu to enable it. Once enabled, press the centre "Select" button behind the camera to activate the LCD. However, the camera can't Auto Focus for you in Live View mode so manual focusing input is required of the photographer.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

Cannon EOS Rebel XS shows busy display stopped working


Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else.
This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. vj

Canon S1 IS:the "Information View" is stuck in display at powerup


I had exactly the same problem and I was very frustrated. Then I learned that Canon published a Service Notice in October 2006? : the CCD Image Sensor on some Canon cameras becomes defective. Canon says they will repair it free of charge for repairs and for shipping if your problem is indeed caused by a malfunctioning CCD sensor, even if it is out of warranty. I called them at 1-800-828-4040. I was offered 2 options.
Option #1): send it in for repairs. (If the CCD isn't the problem, they will repair it at a charge of at least $140.)
Options #2) except an offer for a newer camera (the SD 890 IS) at a greatly reduced price + shipping.
I chose Option #2. Good Luck.

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
