Question about Canon GL1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon gl1 - no picture in the fold out lens

After a recent shoot (camera is rarely used), the camera is not showing an image in the viewer (the flip out side screen which is something like 2X1. I can look through the eye piece and see the image but not on the screen. Battery was charged, camera was on "vcr" to play back. Is there a setting that controls this (I'm thinking I perhaps hit a button). As you can tell, I'm not terribly skilled when it comes to mechanical items. Hoping you can help, Regards, Ron Capito

Hi,

By placing the POWER switch into CAMERA mode, you will then be able to press the MENU button, and access all camera adjustments....including the LCD function.

White cloudy spots on my images - a recent problem

If these are like "bubble" spots and they appear in different places on each photo, I'm guessing you're shooting flash pictures indoors. The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This happens on small point-and -shoots because the flash is almost in the same plane as the lens.

The images are not crisp - as if not fully in focus

I am having the same problem. I bought a Tamron zoom lens as an add on. This lens costs more than the camera and yet images are not as sharp as i would expect from such a highly touted camera. My Kodak Z740 point and shoot gives sharper prints. This is very frustrating. I bought Rebel for Dummies and still am having the same problem. Very frustrating

Flickering image on LCD lens of my Canon S410

By the sounds of it you have a bad chip on your camera system board. If the image records okay and displays okay after the image is recorded. Other than having your camera repaired you may have to use your camera as is.

If you can, save the pictures on the card to your computer. Use the camera to FORMAT the card. Now you should be able to shoot again. This happens when the camera is saving a pictures and runs out of battery power. It has happened to me several times.

Black Image

Are you taking these images with a flash? If so it is possible that you are shooting with a shutter speed which is too fast for flash photography. Anything faster then 1/125th (i think) on that camera with flash will produce the result you are describing. If this is without flash then the problem lies elsewhere. New flashes from canon have the capability to work with any shutter speed, but classic flashes only work properly at lower speeds. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
