Please help. My A75 all of a sudden has a soft haze on all of its shots. I have not changed anything in the menu. My normal settings are Vivid, Large Size/Superfine, Aperture-priority, AWB. I have tried changing settings, going to all Auto, double-checking everything in the world. Both flash shots and natural light shots, regardless of location, have an extraordinarily soft haze. Past sharp shots with the A75 can be seen at http://www.nataliejonathan.com. The crappy, soft, cloudy images I am now getting are unusable. Does anyone have any ideas for me or do I have to send it in?

Thank you. (PS: Is there a total camera reset button?)

Hello Robert. I have a Canon A60 and there is an option to reset on it. On mine , to reset I have to switch on the camera and press the menu button for more than 5 seconds. Then a message comes up to ask if i want to reset all settings to default. I don't know if it's the same for your model but check the index in your manual and look for reset. If it's not there you could try the same method as my camera. :-)

I don't mean to sound insulting if this is not it, but is the lens smudged by any chance

Hi...I cannot believe that a person with my experience could have overlooked something so obvious. You were right that it was a smudged lens, AMG. I am an idiot...beat me now!

The A75 has been great, better than the A70 due to the larger, clearer screen. All else seems the same. By the way, the A70's screen is larger than the A80, though without the flipout. See my pics at http://www.nataliejonathan.com.

Thanks again for saving my rear!
