    Hi everyone! I own a Canon S5. Seems as though I consistently get grainy shots. Can't figure out what I am doing wrong! Also - just wondering how you can speed up the memory card and what accessories you have for your Canon S5 (or for those of you that know of the accessories, what would you choose to buy?)

    thanks so much!

    What mode are you taking pictures in?

    What is the ISO set to?

    It would help us to answer your question if you could tell us in what conditions you are taking your pictures in.

    It could be the ISO setting.

    As far as accessories go, you should definitely get rechargeable batteries and a charger.

    ISO 80 to 100 is ideal for minimizing grain.

    I have been shooting in auto - I'm so afraid of missing shots due to not knowing as much about the manual settings. I tried this evening shooting in ISO 100 indoors - still grainy. Would you recommend an external flash?

    Can you post an example of that - maybe between the photo and EXIF data, we can help to give some more suggestions.

    Canon S5 SDHC card speed

    Hi,
    I was told that a faster SDHC card would allow me to use shorter exposure times. Is this true?
    Thanks,

    Re: Canon S5 SDHC card speed

    No. A faster SDHC card will speed up the time it takes for a picture or a movie to be saved on the card. It will have no effect on exposure.
