Customer Question
I bought a Canon...

I bought a Canon SX60HS and have shot 2000 photos. I have studied both the printed manual that came with the camera and the electronic manual.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your SX60HS?

45 days. Sorry, I accidentally hit "return" and sent message before I told you the problem.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your SX60HS?

OK, your system does not like me hitting "return" to start a new paragraph. I get great photos of birds that I zoom in on, usually using the "P" setting, but I cannot get a focused scene (of a large group of birds or of a mountain, etc. I have tried the various dials.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes, I cannot figure out how to get out of certain functions once I have accidentally turned them on. (example the flash symbol, to the right of the func set button I turned on. I had no idea how to turn the function off. I did, somehow. Now when I am shooting in the "sports" mode I'm getting a stupid function that shows me the photo with different effects. I have no idea how to turn this off.

Hi Harry: I've tried the SCN and the other modes. Nothing will get a simple landscape-type scene in focus. The instructions Canon gives are stupid. Put yourself in my shoes and look at their instructions again. The question is real simple: how do you get a large area of a scene in focus, such as a large group or birds or a mountainous scene? Canon gets into all kinds of fancy stuff but ignores what is most practical. If you don't have one of these cameras, you are probably not going to understand and for the sake of both of us should dismiss yourself from this case. Cheers. Tim
