Is the veiwfinder on instead?

On the back of your cmera bottom right that larger dial has a DISP. symbol on the bottom. Try pressing that several times to see if it toggles the shooting veiw from Veiwfinder to LCD to both.

Re: Blank screen on Canon PowerShot SX60 HS

When I bring up my images on the camera there is 2 graphs almong side the photos and I can't get rid of it, what have I done wrong, it's a SX60 HS, also I'm trading to do iridology and can't get a good eye shot, has anyone got a good suggestion on what setting would work best for this, I get background reflection from the persons eye, thanks.

The info button toggles what data is shown.

 

The only way to get rid of reflections is to get rid of reflections. You need to do it in a dark room and set up the lights so that the reflections are out of the frame. You might be able to just set up a dark sheet behind you.

 

Unless you are trying to prove it wrong, I wouldn't waste my time on iridology.

Re: Blank screen in shooting mode on Canon PowerShot SX60 HS - works in picture mode

Thanks so much - I figured I needed to go camera shopping just before we leave for a trip.

Really appreciate the post to solve my problem! The display button - won't forget that in the future!

Re: Blank screen on Canon PowerShot SX60 HS

Hi John, I had the SX50 HS,and although I hadn't mastered it, I think I acheived better results with it, better than I do with the SX60HS.

I, wish I had stuck to the 50 but was seduced by the extra zoom.

I have to say the 50 was a bit small in my hands, as I was inadvertantly pressing buttons and that was a big factor in my decicion to 'upgrade'

The 60 feels more comfortable for me,although the problem now is not accidently pressing buttons, but finding them without actually looking, as they are recessed and hard to find by touch.

I think both of these cameras have too many 'Bells and Whistles'

 

Persevere with your SX50 HS, it's a great alrounder.

Re: Blank screen on Canon PowerShot SX60 HS

Yes I like my SX50 so much I bought a second one, a Canon refurbished and half of what I paid for the new one for my daughter. The mode dial on the back is where I find myself accidentally pushing it but all in all it is a great camera. I was tempted when the SX60 came out but decided to hold off for the SX100... I figure 4 more years tops lol
