    Set on on 'P' Program, insists on taking 3 pictures!!

    I have nothing set I can see that dictates this. What happened?

    Is theere an exposure or focus bracketing on this Canon camera?
    You could try defaulting all the menu options to defaults, the proceadure should be in your owners manual, usually it`s accessed by holding down a button whilst switching on(Set or Menu possibly) , regards ... Zol.

    That makes sense. I will check it in the manual.

    Thank you.

    On the S 40 you press the menu button for greater than 5 seconds and
    select the option for default settings. I missed that one!

    Thank you again.

    I'd think if you removed the batteries for a while, that might re-zero
    everything.

    I have an S50 which I think is very similar. If you have got exposure or
    focus bracketing turned on (sound like you have to me) you will see the
    option in the shooting menu. I don't have my camera with me at the moment so
    I will attempt to describe it from memory. In P mode press the shooting menu
    button, top button of the 3 on the left hand side (assuming your looking at
    the back of the camera). Then scroll up/down the items on the left of the
    screen. As you highlight the items you will see the selectable values on the
    bottom of the screen. Your looking for the values that look like 3 wire
    frame boxes on top of each other. Sorry thats the best I can do without
    looking at the camera, hope it helps.

    memory (RAM) or whether it would remain within camera (EEPROM or the like) -
    you may need to remove the `date` battery too if it`s battery retained, the
    other from (EEPROM) would still retain the memory even with the batteries
    out ... Zol.
