Dark Corners on Photos


 
 
Hello! My mother owns a Canon Powershot 520, and recently her photos have started having dark corners on them. She can't figure out what setting she may have accidentally changed or how to get rid of the dark corners. Is there someone here who might be able to give step-by-step instructions on what to look for? Thanks so much! :)

  Does her camera have a lens cap that automatically closes when she turns off her camera? If it does, then they're starting to stick. My old HP 720 was starting to do this. My guess is that a regular cleaning at a camera shop will fix it. In the meantime, whenever you start it, just look at the lens, and if the lens cap is still partially closed, just touch them, and they should open right up.

Lynn Marie Coffren   Hi Brendan! I forwarded your comments to her, will let you know. The problem just started suddenly and she doesn't remember adjusting anything that might be causing it. Will follow up as soon as I find out if this worked. :) Thank you! -Lynn
