Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Zooming in & saving

Maybe I am being a bit dim but am hoping someone else knows what to do...I take a picture, view it on the screen, move it around, zoom in, etc...and then I want to save it that way but I can't work out how! I am not even sure this camera does this (I know the Sony Cybershot does but my husband in all his wisdom decided this was the better camera). If someone can tell me how to do this, I will be a happy woman :) Thank you in advance.

Your camera cantt do this. Use the external software that came with your camera, or I would suggest using Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/). It's free and very easy to use for this kind of thing. After all, any software on your computer will give you more options and a better result thatn the camera does when editing yoaour photos.

Hi, I have this TV that i love, recently i see the picture is bigger and i cant see the subtitle and or words around picture like Channel name or ads running below picture


See page 24 of the included manual The view mode button is just above the channel change button. The manual shows how the screen will zoom etc as you right size the view for you. I've included an image of page 24 in the event you can't read the PDF file.

It is east to mis the channel scan and not realizing it change the aspect ratio

I hope that this helps.

My screen appears to be 'zoomed in' note that this is not a resolution issue nor is it just a web browser page that i have zoomed in on using the mouse wheel. My screen was zoomed when the log in screen...


This sounds as if you have the magnifier on if you are using Windows. What the magnifier does is just what you are describing. It zooms in on part of the screen and lets you pan around the screen when you move the mouse to the edge. Unfortunately, I do not know which version you have. If you have XP, you can view this webpage for specific instructions: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/accessibility/magnifierturnon.mspx.
If you have another version, to change it, click on Start Menu>Programs>Accessories>Ease of Access. It should be found there. Once you open it, you should be able to turn it off and go back a normal screen.
I hope this solves your problem. Let me know if it does not.

LG 50" the pitcher is off the screen each side by


Ok, first make sure you or someone in family didn't hit the "HD Zoom" on your cable remote or whatever kind of remote you have. On ours - Cable- if you hit it once it is in "Normal" picture which on ours has black around edges on a non Hd channel. Then if you hit it again it Zooms once makes pix very large and if you hit button a third time brings it into a wide screen Zoom that fills the Tv screen. If we are viewing HD channels I put it on Normal which will fill the screen and give you the best HD pix. If we are viewing a NON HD channel, then normal will have black on sides, so I hit the Zoom a couple times to fill in the screen. My brother in law had this problem and couldn't figure out why his Sports channel Scores were always half cut off the screen! it was zoomed in too much for that channel. His sports channel was in HD so needed to be on normal instead of zoomed in.
if it is not the Cable remote then this is a second possible cause:

The other thing that happened to me was - we hardly ever use our original TV remote that came with the TV. but one day our picture looked weird and the cable remote didn't adjust it. One of us had hit the "P SIZE" button on the TV remote. this changes your pix from - 4:3 ratio to 16:9 ratio and vice versa. I put clicked that button and on the TV it shows whether it is at 4:3 or 16:9. For newer wide screen TVs you want that set at 16:9 ratio.

All cable company remotes probably are a bit different so check with your company ... to find out where the zoom control is on their remote.

My computer screen zoomed in on me and i cannot figure out how to zoom out


Windows 7:
Use the keyboard shortcuts to launch and close it to magnifier your entire desktop i.e.
  • Windows logo key getcontent.aspx?assetid=0d8a4985-b5e2-41a6-a1b6-e4bafb517937&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us + Plus to zoom in

  • Windows logo key getcontent.aspx?assetid=0d8a4985-b5e2-41a6-a1b6-e4bafb517937&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us + ESC to exit.
Windows Vista:
1. Go to your desktop.
  • 2. Hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard.
  • 3. Move your scroll-wheel on your mouse towards you. This will zoom in on items on your desktop.
  • 4. Move your mouse around and the your point of view on your desktop will move with it.
  • 5. Try it with a document or web page open now. Remember to press and hold down your "Ctrl" key on your keyboard.

    How can i change the size of image on the lcd screen


    Press the Zoom-in button (the one with the magnifiying glass) to zoom in. Press the Zoom-out button (the one with what looks like a part of a checkerboard) to zoom out.

    Zooming in lets you look at a portion of an image, zooming out reverses it.

    Zooming out also lets you look at thumbnails and navigate around them to select the picture you want. Then you can zoom in to fill the screen with that picture.

    If you're looking at a picture full-screen, you can also press up/down on the multiselector to change your view of the picture.

    Disappearing screen picture


    Sounds like the battery is weak and it tried to save power by dimming the screen. You might need to contact the manufacturer and get it replaced if under warranty. If not, mess around with it a bit and if you can't solve it then buy a new one from the company.

    Picture is cut off at top and bottom


    I had the same problem with my westinghouse 47 inch HDTV. It turned out that someone had inadvertently hit the "format" key on my satellite (Direct TV) TV remote controller. If you have satellite TV you might want to check this out. I set it back to the previous setting and I get the entire screen. Hope this helps someone.

    White Spot


    If this white spot is always exactly the same, but moves off the picture when you start to digital zoom and not optical zoom, there is probably something on the sensor. You mentioned that when zooming, eventually it moves. Are you in digital zoom mode at that time? (The switchover from optical to digital zoom is automatic, but you can disable it). Is this white spot blurry or sharp? Can you see fringes of the image at the edges? (This would suggest something on the lens).
    If there is a piece of dust inside the lens ,you may be able to see it looking down the lens. How big is this spot?
    Either way, if the camera is new, can you still return it?

    555 battery life problem/question


    Before you conclude that my camera and battery are also misbehaving, I would point out that I have had the camera turned on a lot as I fiddled with focus, zoom, menu settings, more focus and zoom, etc, etc. There there is simply LCD viewing time to look at pictures I have taken, playing with in-camera editing features, more viewing, zooming in and out during review mode, etc, etc. Then there is downloading a few pictures at a time, which probably carries with it some USB overhead each time I connect and disconnect. So, in my opinion, I have not given the camera a fair trial of battery performance yet. Some day, I hope to go out and shoot at least a 256k memory card full of pictures before I have to recharge. Or maybe a few card's worth of photos to get that 400-600 shots per charge.
