Our Canon Power shot A95 is used to take close up photos of jewellery ,with a white background.We have been useing the TV mode with the MF to focus.Howerev the pictures are over enposed, what can we do to...


Instead of shutter priority "Tv" mode, try setting to program "P" mode instead. Also, turn off the flash, and set to macro if shooting close-in (press downward on the little flower icon on the back disk). If pictures come out blurry, try using a tripod to hold the camera steady, or set the camera down on an object so it doesn't move while taking the shot. Try using the timer to activate the shutter to allow the camera to remain even steadier for the shot.

I downloaded pictures from my camera but since then my camera pictures that I take are out of focus


If it is clear in your camera LCD but looks out of focus once you download it to a computer, check if you have enabled close up shots, the one which looks like a flower near the menu button, you have to disable it. Pleare refer to the manual or closely watch the panel buttons. Once you disable close up shots then the pictures you take after that will be good.

If this is not the case we have to check on the autofocus options.

I have a Kinica z5 camera with anti shake. The problem is almost all pictures are blurry.


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower. Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.

The camera will not focus when I try to take up-close shots. Such as an eye. I would like to photograph just an eye but whenever I try to zoom or walk in close enough the camera refuses to focus, haha....


Normally the closest focus you can get is 1.6 ft at W and 3.0 ft at T. In Macro mode you can get down to 3.9 inches. In Super Macro mode you can get even closer.

To get into Macro mode, press the Flower button until the flower appears on the LCD. To get into Super Macro mode, keep pressing the Flower button until an S appears inside the flower.

For full details, refer to your manual. In my copy, it starts on page 56.

Hi I bought this camera Fujifilm finepix s10000 fd in order to photograph sharp and clear close up pictures the best way I can. When I press the Menu/ok button = nothing happens. It simply does not...


if your wanting to do macro photography (close up) on the dial on the back, click the left button on the circle and a little flower should pop up on the screen saying "Macro, close up shots" this is for pictures that are closer up then regular and U want them in focus. it takes a few times to get it focused a few times but when it is focused properly, the square in the middle of the screen should be red. if you want really close up, click the button another time and the flower should come up again and it should say "macro close up shots up to 2cm (0.8in). once again once its focused properly the square will be red. you will have to practice because it takes time to learn where its proper focusing points are but i'm sure you will get the hang of it.

Will not focus in AF, Will not take picture


Try switching the macro off, if it is on. The macro is for close-up shots. When my mom uses her camera with the macro on, it gets really out-of-focus. I look like a flower.

Cybershot H7 focus problem


Things to check before you assume it is a mechanical issue-you can get vibration message if flash is disabled, be sure also that the macro mode is not enabled-this is very common on sony cameras to turn on by accident-flower button on camera will put in close up mode and you will get blur make sure no flower is present on lcd screen-if in macro press button on camera w/flower to turn off-also in menu you have continuous and monitor auto focus settings try changing one or the other and see what happens
