With a point&shoot camera, use the macro or close-up mode.

With a DSLR, use a macro lens or extension tubes.

How can i crop a picture of a coin around its edge,not a square

Im guessing you have extracted the picture from ur cam to your PC? The most efficient way to do this would be to use a programme such as photoshop, which would allow you to cut out the exact image you want. If you dont have photoshop, a quick and cheap solution would be to use Paint which almost every standard PC will have, usually found under all programmes & accessories. Simply paint white around the coin and save the pic.
Hope this helps

I have just purchased a Vivicam x014 Camera I am trying to take closup picures of coins. I am having a problem with glar can you recomend a user guide that I can use. Thank You Bob Lo...

If you are using the camera's flash, this may be your problem. Pros use external lights to photograph small objects. You can do the same by purchasing inexpensive workshop light reflectors and "daylight" type compact flourescent bulbs. Turn off the camera flash and position the lights on each side of the coins aimed at 45 degree angles to the coins. This eliminates the glare and provides perfect lighting. You can also experiment by turning off one of the lights so that the coins are lit from one side only...this will really bring up the detail in the coins.

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!

My camera eats matter what kind I use


Please follow these steps....

) You can lower the setting of your digital camera so that the quality of photo is reduced from the typical "standard quality" which comes set on the camera. What you will need to do is go into the options and reduce the quality to "economy" so that the battery expands less energy to take the picture, which will lead to longer batter life.

2) Make sure that you have calibrated your battery before you bring the camera along on your adventure. You can do this by charging your battery fully and then turning on the camera so that it dies. Once this happens you can charge it again and you will find that it will now last a lot longer than it formally did. I have found this to be very useful with all of my digital cameras.

3) In order to get the most out of your battery you should switch the battery in your camera from standard disposable batteries to rechargeable batteries. This is because of the fact that they last 2x as long as expand less to actually take the photo according to the Energizer rechargeable box.

4) You can go into the settings and turn off the flash if you see one when you are taking a picture. This will reduce the amount of energy going out of the camera which means that your battery will not die as fast as it normally would. You will need to select settings and then choose "no" next to the word flash.

5) You can also make your battery last longer by adjusting the settings so that you are not recording audio notes with your pictures. This will drain your battery fast so you should go into your options menu and select audio off. According to my Sanyo instruction booklet this will make your battery last up to an hour longer.

Good Luck

Eats batteries

maybe you can alter your settings I think some settings (the resolution or size of pictures ?) may cause batteries to run down more quickly.

I want to take a close-up picture of a coin to show details, I want to sell on ebay. What settings etc.?

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

Photographing Coins in Marco Mode

you may find that manual focus gives you the best result - you can also use the focus bracketing (it takes 3 pics - one either side of what you have selected) will give you sharper images. dont forget that the best resilts will come when the camera is supported!

You can use the LCD and just zoom in loads until you can see minute details and you can then see if you have a good focus....
