You may just be too close for this lens to focus - try taking pictures at varying distances from your subject, measuring the distance between the focal plane and the subject carefully, to find the optimum operating distance.

Can you not take full colour images as usual, then use your image editing software to create the effects you want ? By doing it that way, you will have far more control over the finished result.

Well IF there is a PDF or other formatted file on the CD?DVD then I cannot see why not, alternatively, simply go to the manufacturers website and locate and download a copy. or simply Google the exact make and name...

On newer operating system I think this one gets recognized but if it doesn't for you you may have to run the setup cd you should have got with the camera.
That will install any files or drivers needed as well as the image editing software.

The main page for it is here:

And the support page is here (where all the file downloads are):

Just go there and click on what you want along the left side of the screen. Make sure it is showing the x500.

If my links won't work then you need to go to

Click on our cameras then the picture of your camera. For support stuff just click on the support link and chose the picture again. That will get you to the same pages as the first links. The software should detect when the camera is plugged into the usb. I do have one canon that refuses the play nice and won't do this so I just use a card reader to transfer the pictures right off of the cards.On the same page is contact information for support don't be afraid to call them and ask them anything.

Did you check in your manual if there is a function to "write protect" your camera against accidental operation? Mine doesn't have this option but some other device MIGHT have it.
If you don't have the manual , download it from here:


Excuse me if I can't give you the proper answer but I don't have the time to read the manual. If you CAN'T find a write protect functon, feel free to comment

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

camera working okay; but he flash?
You can go into the menu and see if the flash has been turned off.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
