    Jiggling when trying to take pictures

    My Canon SD800 just started this recently. I view through the window at the back of the camera. All of a sudden, things start jiggling around. When I take the picture, though, everything is fine. But the jiggling persists. Any suggestions as to what is causing this and how I can remedy it? Thank you!

    Have you changed the setting for image stabilisation on your lens?

    Fixed or not?

    Well, today it is working just fine. I did put in a new battery. The image stabilization has always been on,so the shaking had to have been caused by something else. As I mentioned, the pictures turn out fine when I go to view them on camera. But even as I was viewing them, I could actually hear the shaking noise. It was very strange!

    Seems like image stabilization to me. Maybe it's gone a little wonky. Get it checked I guess if it bothers you but honestly if the images are unaffected, I wouldn't bother too much about it.

    Low battery power could probably cause it to act up. IS is a big battery drainer so presumably one of the first things to go when the batteries are low.
