I have a canon G11.

Everything was working fine until a couple of weeks ago, when it stopped displaying the image for review each time I take a picture.

I haven't consciously turned this off, but I must have changed something.

When I look in the menu, I can see the option for "Review"; it is set to "Off", and the option is greyed out so I can't get to it.

I can't find anything in the manual or the googles to help me out.

Any ideas?

On the G9, I'm sure it's done by pressing the display button... not sure if the G11 has that or not... – forsvarir May 3 '12 at 14:37
Have a look at page 45/46 of your manual: – forsvarir May 3 '12 at 14:44
@forsvarir, Thank you, but that doesn't help: the problem is not display, but review, where the just-taken image is displayed for 2 seconds (default) after it's taken. My problem is more related to pages 153-154, except that I can't choose those menu options. – AJ Finch May 3 '12 at 15:39

Reset All

In the end I went into the settings menu and selected "Reset All". This has fixed it - image review is now back. I still have no idea what it was that I changed to make it go away!

So any more information still much appreciated.

It's easy, turn on your camera in shooting mode (just press the on/off button or the shutter button if in view mode), go into the setting menu, select the first tab (the one with the camera icon) and scroll down until you read "Review". Now you could change this setting to 2 up to 10 secs, hold or just turning it off.

thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, the problem is that the "Review" option was greyed out, so I can't select it. – AJ Finch May 5 '12 at 8:07
