Focus problems are quite common after a lens error, it sounds like you still have an issue with that lens unit. If you need help, there's a great site taht just specializes in the powershot problems, nothing else at all. Try going to www.camerasandparts.com and you'll see the fix for this for your SD890 camera. I hope that helps, that site is amazing for the powershots and that's where a lot of people go for help with these. Good luck with it.

Shutter darkens on Canon S5 IS


U have a sick puppy on your hands. Hopefully, the camera is still under warranty. If not, it may not be cost effective to repair and replacement might be in order.

Canon S5IS picture darkens


I can't think of anything that is wrong in your camera. Must be a connection point in a switch that has a too high resistance. And even when you manage to find what switch, you could not replace it.
In the 7 years that your camera exists, camera's have become more sophisticated, and picture quality has increased even in the cheaper models, so perhaps it is worth thinking of a new camera? Perhaps you now even can buy a beginner DSLR, or a system camera, cheaper then your S5IS was 7 years ago.

Take your camera to a Canon authorized service center and see if they can try to clean the button area. This might solve your issue. Other than a cleaning they will most likely have to replace the button assembly and/or top cover depending on how the camera is designed.

When taking a picture during nighttime, my camera only flashes repeatedly and does not take a photo, how can i fix this?


This is because your camera can't focus in dark. Your flash is triggering, trying to light up the subject, for the camera to be able to focus. If you focus manually the camera will be able to take a picture with out problems.

You could also light up the place you want to focus with a flash light or something, which will make the camera able to focus.

I'm not one to know EVERYTHING about cameras, but I do own a Canon Powershot S5IS & the best advice I can give you is.. to put it on 'auto' and since you'd like to show as much detail as possible.. try using the super macro. ( It's on the bottom left side of the camera) it really makes a BIG difference, you see EVERYTHING, point & shoot!

but you have to be close to it, because if not, it won't focus much
& the picture will be blurry.


hope I helped!

The focus mechanizm does nee to 'see' what it is looking at. Check you manual see if there is a setting for fixing the focus so thatr the camara can shoot from near- about 2m to infinity without the focus operating.
