20 Most Recent Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera - Page 3 Questions & Answers


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
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.

No, the IXUS 50 is not waterproof. You cannot use it underwater without an underwater housing.

I have the exact camera. Spoke with a local camera repair shop. They had to send it back to the factory for the part and installation and am waiting for it to be returned in the mail.

You're not going to like my answer. Salt water is very corrosive. Once it gets into a camera, even if you allow the moisture to dry out, will continue to corrode the camera and lens elements. Repair shops will not even touch a camera that has been dropped in salt water.

I suggest you to use a 1GB SD card. Even 2GB might be supported. Don't use SDHC cards. They are incompatible with older cameras.

Canon PowerShot... | Answered on Sep 05, 2011


Your older camera can only work with 2GB or smaller standard SD cards. It is not capable of recognizing the newer format 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Fortunately, old format 2GB SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.

Canon PowerShot... | Answered on Sep 02, 2011


Have you used the correct card?

It's very common for users to try too large a capacity or even the later SDHC cards which were designed long after your PowerShot SD400 / Digital Ixus 50. That camera can only accept SD cards to a maximum 2GB capacity, and with some brands it's a bit fussy and will only accept 1GB.

Also note that your camera does not need high speed SD cards, if you put an advanced speedy model in there it will work (subject to the previous restrictions) but your camera lacks the ability to make use of the speed.

You'll need to change resolution to "Postcard" resolution(1200 pixel width) to activate date/time stamp (look for it in the menus). Unfortunately, that is the only resolution that date time stamp will work in, or show as activated/selectable in your menu.

maybe its on manual focus. take the batteries out and reinsert them

put it on the green auto program. If that still doenst help the auto focus is damaged

You can also bring it to a photo dealer and ask them how much it is woth if you trade it in. The will discover the issue and tell whats wrong

Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

Yes, be careful.

For the photo transfer, remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into a memory card reader. Some PCs have these build in. If not, you can get one from any electronics store. The card readers plug into your PC's USB slot and the card shows up as a drive on the PC. You can copy & paste (or drag & drop - your preference) to move the pictures from the memory card to your PC.

For the battery - did you charge it before use? Most batteries ship at about 30 to 50% capacity.
