Customer Question

I have a Canon Power Shot SX500IS camera. I took pictures of an award presentation to be placed in our newspaper and the pictures did not go onto my chip, but only in the camera's memory. How can I retrieve the pictures for the newspaper?
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Canon Power Shot SX500IS . It has 16 mega pixels and a 4.3-129.0mm lens. My estimate is the camera is approximately 6 years old.
JA: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I am extremely non-technical, so I haven't tried anything in fear I would lose the photos I took.
JA: Anything else you want the camera expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I am leaving for a Veterans Day Honor Program at our school very soon. I need to retrieve the photos or retake them to be placed in the newspaper.
