I have a Canon Power Shot SD990 digital camera. It takes great pictures except when I want to take a close up picture of an item I want to put on Ebay. I have read my manual, but can't seem to get the blur out of the pictures. They are okay, but not crisp like other pictures of subjects.

Are you taking the pictures in "macro" mode? This requires a steady hand so a tripod is a good idea. ... Canon PowerShot SD990 IS / Digital IXUS 980 IS Digital Camera

In May we purchased a Canon Power Shot 590IS. We love the camera, however, battery life with camera is poor at best. With new high energy digital batteries we get approxiamtely 40 - 45 pictures, with 4 differnt manufactures rechargable batteries, we get 12 - 15 pictures, before the batteries require replacement. The camera was retruned to Best Buys where we purchased it aong with an extended warranty. They keep the camera for 10 days, retruned it saying nothing was wrong. Any suggestions?

They will be getting awards and the person giving the awards is Irish American and very light skinned. This will take place in a room that is well lit with florescent lighting.
