    I assume that you are referring to viewing the photo on the camera screen, yes? Have you tried zooming in on the photo using the zoom switch, then moving around the photo using the directional arrows? While holding the camera w/ lens away from you and you are in file/pix view mode, if you bump the zoom switch to the left the images grow smaller then go to thumbnails, whereas if you bump zoom to right they zoom in within individual photo... from which you can navigate around the photo using directional arrows on 'the wheel'.

Click on the " flower" icon on the dial wheel to select the macro mode and then shoot normally. also, do remember to return to normal mode by pressing the flower icon again... or else you might end up getting blurry images.

I have a Sony W120 and had the same macro problem, tried all the "solutions" mentioned here without result. So I pressed the "Home" button, went to "Settings" (last menu item at right), then "Main Settings", and used the "Initialize" functio. Problem solved !

Close up pics with canon S3 IS


To get the sharpest possible pictures always mount your camera on a tripod.
Step 1 set your S3 camera to Program mode using the wheel control on top of the camera to P position.
Step 2 Press the function button on the rear of the camera, you will see a list of settings appear on the left side of the screen, you can scroll down through each of those settings using the up/down buttons of the up/down/left/right control on the back of the camera.
You can change the settings using the left/right buttons of that same up/down/left/right control. If you change a setting press the SET button to implement the change.
Set those settings as follows.
The top one set it to Zero
2nd one set it to AWB
3rd one set it to OFF
4th one set it to AEB (the center setting) then press SET button. your camera will now take 3 pictures each time you press the shutter, each at a different exposure setting so you can choose the best one.
5th one set it to Zero
6th one set it to Evaluative
7th one is video mode it is not neccessary to change this for taking stll pictures.
8th and last one, set it to L then press the SET button it takes you to a second option set this to S then press SET button again, now the display for that setting should show SL ( this sets your camera to use the highest resolution settings)

Now you have your camera set up you can get ready to take your pictures, press the function button again to close out the settings list.
Keep your camera in Program mode (P on the wheel control)
If you want to take close up pictures,
Press the macro button located on the left side of the lens close to the body of the camera it has a flower icon above it.
On your camera screen you will see it say macro, this is for close ups.
If you hold that same button down for about half a second it will change to super macro mode for extreme close ups. This allows your camera to focus on objects very close to the camera lens.
Position your camera as close to the subject as neccessary to make it fill the screen.
Now if you are using a tripoid, press the shooting mode selection button located just behind the shutter release button, each time you press this button you will see a different shooting mode appear on the screen. Press it repeatedly untill it says Self Timer. This mode allows you to press the shutter release then let go of the camera altogether so you will not cause camera shake. the camera will beep and take the picture several seconds later.
I would strongly recommend you use a tripod but f you are not using one ignore that last step and try to hold the camera as still as possible while you take the picture. If you follow those instructions you should get good sharp pictures.

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.... :)

Area captured in photo different from area saw in viewfinder


Make sure you look straight through the viewfinder. Keep in mind that the area visible through the viewfinder is slightly smaller than the area captured in the photo. If you're taking a close-up or macro mode picture, turn the camera dial to the LCD mode so that you can use your LCD screen to preview your picture.
