Question about Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera
I am taking photos of jewelry and i need for detail to be seen. Which mode do I use?
If you need to get close, use the Super Macro scene mode. Otherwise, I'd use the Program mode so as to be able to control the depth of field. I would also use a tripod or other stable support so as to eliminate camera shake. I would also use the self-timer so the camera has a chance to quit moving after I take my finger off the shutter release button.

have opened my camera. (it was useless anyway, right?) GUess what I found: in the lens-assembly there is a ribbon cable that controls the two solenoids, one of the shutter, one of the diafragm (or what it's called). This one is broken, the electric circuits are discontinued and so there is no control. It seems to be a design error since it broke exactly where the ribbon bends at 180 degrees almost with no place for a loop most of the focussing time. Can anyone find out where to find a NEW replacement ribbon cable?

No, you can't.
You only can transfer the pictures back to the camera if the pictures were taken by the same model cameras, plus the pictures were not modified.

According to page 57 of my copy of the A480 manual:
Select the self-timer (the 10 inside a clockface).
This sets the self-timer. Press the shutter halfway to focus, and fully to take the shot.

Testimonial: "What came in the package was a brief manual called "Getting Started". However, I did find the official full-feature manual at Canon's website, Thanks."
Place the camera in P, Tv, Av, M, Movie, or Stitch-assist mode. Press the Func/Set button, and scroll down to the "My Colors" icon on the left side (second or third icon down, should show "My Colors Off" at the bottom of the LCD). Now use the left/right buttons to select "B/W", and press the Func/Set button again.

Had same problem and just fixed it! I just turned it off, took the battery AND card out for a few minutes and then making sure I had it switched to still mode, put the card and battery back in and turned it on. Working fine again. I suspect it actually does a 'reset' this way so what seemed to be a mechanical issue was definitely a software one ...
