Canon IXUS 300 HS User Guide
Screen Display in Dark Conditions during Shooting
The display automatically brightens when shooting in dark conditions,
allowing you to check the composition (Night Display function). However, the
brightness of the image on the screen, and the brightness of the actual image
recorded may be different. Screen noise may appear and the movement of
the subject may appear somewhat jagged on the screen. This has no effect
on the recorded image.
Overexposure Warning during Playback
In “Detailed Information Display”
, overexposed areas of the image
flash on the screen.
Histogram during Playback
The graph that appears in “Detailed
is called the
histogram. The histogram shows the
distribution of brightness in an image
horizontally, and the amount of brightness
vertically. When the graph approaches the
right side, the image is bright, but when it
approaches the left side, the image is dark,
and in this way you can judge the exposure.
The Indicator on the back of the camera
will light or blink depending
on the camera’s status.

These actions may corrupt the image data or cause the camera or memory
card to malfunction.
