Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting

W1 Sharpening I am new to the Sony W1 and I have read somewhere that the camera should be set to the P mode and the sharpening to the ( - ) minus and it would yeild the best results. I am confused, why would you want the picture to be less sharp if your shooting nature for example. Wouldn't it be better to use the + setting?

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.
Small white circles usually means dust on the lens. Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ... Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH Camera - Silver

Portrait I know the FZ20 has a portrait setting, but can still remember from my old 35 mm SLR camera days that the best lens to use for portraits is a 135 mm lens. What would the same zoom setting be on a digital camera?
Interesting about the 135mm lens- it was a historical oddity based on Leica M cameras as that was the highest telephoto lens their rangefinder would work accurately with. In the SLR world it is an oddity.\015\012\015\012You would actually find that 9 ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

Automatic "Portrait" mode would work best for what you describe. It's the setting showing the profile of a woman on your mode dial. Try it both with and without flash (press the "lightning bolt" button on the back of your camera). ... Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera
