I was recently at Mexico taking photos until I turned my canon powershot sx530 off and then all of a sudden I turn it back on and tried to move the toggle switch, and it was like stuck at 1/125 and it won’t move (the switch will move but the shutter won’t) I have no idea what happened to it, never dropped it, maybe it’s locked or something, but I really need help!

This is first time I have created "Dark frames" for Astrophotography. The photos I took show lots and lots of red, blue of few white dots all over the photo. Are those dots the result of "dead / hot pixels" in the sensor or dust on the sensor? Here is the onfo on the camera and photos: Camera is Powershot SX530 HS. This is an older camera. It is a point and shoot with 6mmX5mm CMOS sensor. I have enhanced the camera with CHDK. The dark frames ,  were taken in full manual mode, with lens cap...

I'm looking for a replacement lens cap for this camera. Does anyone know which size I need? I thought I'd check here first before calling Canon. I asked two different popular vendors and they gave me different sizes (49mm and 58mm).

Hello all! I have had so much trouble with this question over the past couple months, and I just made this account to hopefully get some answers. Right now I have the Canon Powershot SX530 HS that I use for taking videos for Youtube and other things. I want to switch to a DSLR, because the SLR's have much better specs that will in turn create better videos. I was originally going to buy a Canon EOS Rebel T5i, (700d) to create that better video for me. In my videos, I do a lot of flips, cliff...

Hello, Newbie here! ! I love my Canon Powershot S5IS camera I bought in 2008 but with only 8 megapixels it isn't giving me the detail I want shooting crystals on black background. I am in my second career as a jewelry designer and I am looking to upgrade to another Powershot. I do not want to upgrade further than that because I am dyslexic and it has taken me years to understand the camera I have! So staying with a Powershot... I'm Looking at the SX530 which has 16 MP and the SX540 with 20.3...

Cameras in question are  Own: Olympus EPL-1 (2010). Micro four/thirds. I have a kit (14-42) and telephoto (40-150) lens.  Thinking of purchasing Canon Powershot SX530. (2015) Aside from the benefits in zoom, would I expect to see a large change in image quality? I know I'm going from the larger 4/3 to a smaller 1/2.6? But if i'm shooting in broad daylight, has tech advanced enough to give better overall IQ and noise minimization at low brightness? Also, if you have any recommendations on...

After importing a G3X lens hood and filter adapter, I attached the adapter to the lens and the hood to the adapter.  Worked fine, so I reversed the hood into the storage position, no problem.  Next I tried to remove the reversed lens hood; big problem.  Only comes off with the adapter ring and impossible to separate the two whether on or off the camera.  Anyone had this problem and how did you solve it?  Pressing the release catch does nothing and it seems like the hood must only fit on the...

Hi all, Does anyone know the difference/which is better between a ½ 3” / 6.17 x 4.55mm CMOS sensor and a HAD CCD sensor? I have been looking at the SONY H400B Bridge Camera (20.1MP, 63x optical zoom) and the SONY DSCH400 Digital Compact Bridge Camera (same MP and optical zoom). They're also a similar price. I'm looking at a few others as well: CANON PowerShot SX530 HS Bridge Camera (16MP, 50x optical zoom, ½ 3” sensor) FUJIFILM S9900W Bridge Camera (16.2MP, 50x optical zoom, same sensor) Can...
