Question about Canon PowerShot S200 / IXUS 178 Digital Camera
I'm trying to take pictures of small objects such as jewelry for selling online. I've tried multiple times to get decent close ups in Macro mode, with no luck. I can't understand why. I've seen other users post images of jewelry and coins that had decent close-up resolution, but I cannot achieve what they have done. I've switched to wide-angle and used the Macro mode, tried it with the flash on and off. Can someone walk me through the steps to take good close-ups?
Recommend not using flash. The first thing is that your subject should be well lit. Try placing it on a lighter background with good lighting around it. Also recommend using a tripod to keep the camera steady, and setting and using the camera's timer to take the photo (this also helps keep the camera steady). The closest auto-focused macro shot that the S200 takes is around 1 foot from the subject. Depress the shutter button halfway to verify that the subject is in focus (one of the three squares on the LCD should turn green on the subject). Next depress the shutter button all the way to take the photo.
