Super Macro will not work in "auto" mode. If you put it in "P" mode (and possibly the other manual modes) and then press the "macro" (little flower looking think) button to the left of the lens under "MF" (manual focus). It will display "hold for super macro" on the screen.

I cannot get the camera to focus any image except


You're apparently in either Macro or SuperMacro mode. Press the Macro button (left on the four-way controller, marked with a blooming flower) repeatedly to cycle through the modes.

Macro: 10 - 50 cm (3.9 in. to 1.6 ft.)
Super Macro: 0 - 10 cm ( 0 to 3.9 in.)

Blurred focusing as soon as turned on


Dear Hokiefootball,

Merry Christmas to you,
Have you Check your Macro and SuperMacro setting whether its turn on or not. The function is for closed up shooting. The sound is from the motorized elements and mechanism in the camera for focusing and shutter adjustment, it is normal. Direct your camera to any object and try to press half-shutter until the target become green. Good Luck

I can't get my Powershot S5 to go into Super Macro mode - Help!


Hi,
There seem to be two stipulations for getting into super macro mode,
First you must be in scn ("A" or "S" mode's only) and "movie", "P", "TV", "AV" or "M" modes only.
Secondly the zoom Lens must be all the way out.. set at the widest angle.

Best of luck

Guest is quite right - use the macro button on left hand side of lens (holding camera pointing at subject) Press once for "macro" which focuses from 10cm away. If you hold this button in for about 2 seconds, it puts your camera into "supermacro" mode, which gives focus from right up against the lens! (need backlighting for this close!) Supermacro will not work in Auto and Sport mode. Best is to use "AV" or "TV"

As far as viewing your pics goes - rotate the mode lever (You turn this anti-clockwise to turn ON) clockwise and you will see the most recent pic on your LCD screen. Use the left and right direction on the omni selector to naviagate through your pics.

Its a good idea to download the advanced manual onto your pc from the dic supplied. Its an adobe document and very user-friendly.

I hope this helps you.... :)

Green focus box


It might be because u r working in macro/supermacro mode (u can see a little flower on top of the viewfinder/lcd display) and focusing on a distant object or u try focussing a subject placed very near the cam while working with non macro mode. If changing these doesnt solve ur prblm, plz provide full details of what mode u use, what u r focussing on, what is the lighting conditions u used, etc..

Zoom Problem


Before assuming the camera is broken, have a flip through the settings menus to make sure you haven't got the camera into some mode which is incompatible with zoom - for instance, mine won't zoom if it's in SuperMacro mode. A.
