You didn't specify the type of camera.

With a point&shoot like a Coolpix, use the Macro or Close-up mode.

With a DSLR, use a macro lens.

Either way, you'll have to be careful lighting the subject

I'm trying to take pictures of rare coins for sale on ebay. Help!!!


If your camera has the capability you will want to take pictures using the macro function on your camera. It has an icon that looks like a flower. It lets you take closeup pictures, which would be helpful for the coins. You will want to place the coins on a plain background with plenty of light shining on the coins from above and also another light from the side. Multiple lights will give your pictures some more depth to the coins. Make sure that the angle that you are taking your pictures doesnt have any glare. Hope that helps!

I wanted to take close up pictures so I could sell items on ebay what would be the best settings and any other tips


Get out your owners manual and look for the closeup section. If you don't have a closeup setting, you can always shoot from further back and then crop the pictures. I'm sure you received a picture modification program on a CD with your camera. If you did not there are lots of free photo software on the web. Look for Picasa, Infanview, Photo studio 5, and others.

Completely bloked


What I can understand is the camera does not allow you to take any photographs. Recharge the batteries fully and try again. If you still can't get it working, please provide all details like what does the display show, what setting are you using etc.

How do I take close up pictures of coins. I would like to sell on ebay and I do not know what setting etc.


The setting, at least on the cameras that I have owned, is usually the flower icon. On some models when your in this mode it will turn the w/t bar green when it is in close up mode and at the proper distance. Double check with your user guide.

How can I take pictures of something small and detailed, like jewelry


Try using the mode that shows the icon of the flower, it is for close-ups. Also try using bright desk lamps to illuminate the jewelry well enough so that a flash is not needed. if you can, set up a white box or white posterboard to bounce light around, this too will help. Placing the camera on a tripod or something to steady it while shooting will help as well.

PURPLE LINES SHOWING ON SCREEN WHEN ATTEMPTING TO TAKE PHOTOS


Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.
