Hi, Don't know how to obtain clear close up of small subject

\015 Hi,I don't seem to be able to get clear close ups of small items such as Jewellery, Can you please advise? Thanx Susanne\015

Answers :

Mount your camera on a tripod. Set it for "macro" mode. Turn off the flash. Light the jewelry with lamps (like worklight reflector clip on lamps) fitted with daylight balanced compact flourescent bulbs. Use poster paper of various colors for background. Set your ISO to 400. Set your white balance to "auto white balance". Have fun!

Focusing problems Hello, I have been trying to take close-up pictures (between 4-12 inches away from subject) but when I press the shutter button halfway, on the screen I see the image come into focus, come out of focus, come into focus,.. on and on for several moments until it settles on the out of focus image. I've tried setting the camera to the macro and super macro settings, and that doesn't help at all. I know it can focus, because I see it on the screen but for some reason it chooses the

Fuji finepix s1500 - difficult to get it to focus at close macro. I found that I have to have the lens at its widest angle for the camera to focus on a close subject - like at 2 cm like the manual says. If I zoom up just a bit then the focus changes and my close subject is out. Is this the way it is supposed to operate?


Yes. You won't have the same macro focussing ability at all focal lengths. But usually the important thing is that it's not how close the camera can focus, but how large the image is, so you'll often find that a longer focal length (i.e. ... Digital Cameras

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.


I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras
