Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Automatic shooting (for group pictures)

This is an embarrassing question made necessary by my misplacing my owner's manual.  I am wondering how to set up a timer so I can take a group photo . . .  I can't even think of what this feature is officially called.  I hope someone can help.  Thanks!  N.D.

Hi - You can download the manual from the link underlined in blue below:

PowerShot A710

The feature you need is the "self timer" on page 14:

Automatic shooting (for group pictures) - 72f5a82.jpg

When you press the shutter you will have up to 30 seconds to get yourself in the picture before the camera automatically takes the picture. For best results put the camera on a tripod.

Please take a moment to rate this solution & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Camera picture distorted Olympus fe -340 8.0 5xzoom


Could it be you changed something in the settings?

Can you see the scene in a normal way before shooting? then it look to me the sensor an the camera have to be good.

It is to much to tell you how, because you have to look that up in the manual, but, please try to set the camera in auto mode, because is you did set to in the scene mode, and than chose blurry background, or shooting through glass that could cause the distortion.
I put the link for the manual down here, in case you can't find yours.
Start at page 6 to see how to shoot in automatic.
Be aware if you shoot ready shot (anti shake) on a tripodthe pictures will be blurred to.

How to use in Nikon d90 manual setting in best photograph for marriage purpose


Based on this question, I would recommend that you use the Nikon D-90 automatic (green) setting. This is basically a point and shoot setting for inexperienced camera users which is what your question indicates.

I would not attempt to shoot manual pictures on a critical event such as a wedding without practicing a lot with the camera. The D-90 is an excellent camera with many, many incredible features but it has a long learning curve.

Using the automatic mode won't guarantee excellent pictures but it should guarantee some usable ones.

Fuzzy pictures


If you have not dropped your camera or otherwise caused damage that would explain the change, then you should first check the settings.  Your camera has both automatic and manual exposure controls.  From what you wrote I expect you want to use the automatic settings.  First check the "dial" on top of the camera, which has a green AUTO setting.  Your manual should explain the settings in  further detail  if necessary.

Automatic shoot?


Look at 4-buttons control near LCD. One has Clock sign. It calls Timer. Press it and your camera will take picture after few seconds pause.

Pictures too dark


The settings in Auto Mode are factory set. If you want to adjust exposure and shutter speeds then you will have to shoot in Manual Mode (TV=Shutter Priority, AV=Aperture Priority, M=Full Manual)

Changing the quality setting


There are three groupings of shooting modes on the C-725 UZ: 1) Program & A/S/M, 2) Auto & Sports & Portrait & Landscape, 3) Movie mode. Each group can retain a quality selection for all modes in the group. Therefore, you cannot have a different quality setting for each shooting mode within a grouping.
