Intro and query
Hi Steve and Forum Members,
This is the third time that I have tried to post.
Actually I got one line posted on the second attempt 13 Aug.

SOOOO HERE WE GO AGAIN.My username suits me well as I an orphan in Cyberspace as
no doubt you realised by my attempt yesterday.Anyways, Born 1943 and live in Ireland
which makes me 71 this year psychically but a much younger overactive mind.
I took up photography in the days of my "YOOF" with a basic camera, no light meter assist
and you had to learn whether it was a f8 125 day or a f11 30 day depending on your depth
of field required.

Then came the bane of my life. Digitalision, which meant all the technical knowledge that
I gathered was supplementary but still useful.

Now for my problem.I have a CANON S1 IS original production model.When I take a photo
And review it on the camera screen, I get a split image. Left hand side is the photo.
On the right hand side of the screen is several spiked images defining either light or colour
Values, I think.

I obviously hit a wrong button in the settings at some time.
Can some one please tell me how to revert back to showing just the full photo on the
camera screen.

Thanking you..

Going back a bit here, but I think when your in "review" mode (pic display), by pressing "Display" or "Func" button (can't remember which) several times,you'll get back to full image display.

Firstly - orphan or not ... welcome to Steve's - you'll find us a pleasant mob of photo enthusiasts who are willing to share ideas and knowledge

Simon is correct - it's the display button that you need to 'tame'
As you go, you'll find that most of the little buttons go round in a circle - they show 3 or 4 or 5 options before returning to the start point. Bit confusing at the beginning, but like most things, you become used to it

Enjoy your little Canon - they make great cameras for great photographers to play with

Thanks Simon and Ozzie for your reply. i'll try fiddling about with the display button hoping that will fix this nuisance. Quote from Phil,,,"Enjoy your little Canon -"
I 'd rather enjoy a Barossa Bin 27.

Ah mate ... whether it's a Barossa or a Margaret River or a Hunter or a Ruthergen & whether it's a red or white ... it matters not, Aussie wines are world leaders

ps- itz funny how the frenchies are bringing their vingerons out here to learn the tricks of the trade, ain't it
