Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera ?

Are there any digital photography how-to books for canon s1 is?

\015 I'd like to take lower light (early am, eve, after rain) pics of flowers. How close can I get? It seems I have to use the zoom to fill the frame. How to blur the background so eye is drawn just to the subject? I sure could use a how to manual on this camera as there are many features, not so easy to use or understand them all from the Canon manual.\015\012I use this for all my scenery pic's at national parks and it does a great job. I'd like to do more and use the camera to its' fullest capabilities.\015\012Perhaps there are some courses available for this camera? I am in Indianapolis, IN.\015

Answers :

The minimum focus distance for this camera is 3.9 inches at W, 3.1 feet at T.

In order to blur the background you need to reduce the depth of field. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done. The S1 has a small sensor, and thus a short lens, only 5.8-58mm. If you've heard about "35mm equivalents," forget about that for now--the depth of field is determined by the physical focal length, not any equivalences. A lens this short is going to have a rather wide depth of field, no matter what you do. Even wide open, the maximum aperture is f/2.8 at W, f/3.1 at T.

Spend a couple of hours browsing in the photography section of your local public library. I'm sure you'll find some books on close-up photography. And if you want to learn the technical stuff about depth of field, apertures, and so on, you'll probably find books on that as well.

Moire patterns A few months ago I decided to 'wet my toe' with digital photography and I bought very cheap Mustek GSmart Mini 2 digicam. As you might expect with a $60 camera the image quality is a bit limited due to the fixed focus lens, low resolution (1.3MP) and poor low light performance. Anyway, now that I can see the advantages of digital photography I'm planning on buying a decent camera e.g. Canon S230 to overcome the problems of the Mustek. One problem that the mustek has


The moire pattern is most likely due to poor lens resolution and a resolution that conflicts with the close pattern of the house design. By lowering the resolution. you are making the receptors "bigger" so they dont pick up the smallest details. if ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera
