I just purchased the camera today.How could I get a wide angle look out of the camera. Standing about 2 feet away I am only able to barely see all my face. My son has a webcam and at the same distance I could see up to both shoulders. Please advise if us anything I could do to get a wider look of me with this camera. My e-mail is : firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Carlos Corona del Cid

there are advanced color correction modes,
Blue or dark pictures/videos
Keep your shooting distance inside of 2ft to 3ft, depending on
visibility and ambient light.
If you are using only one light, considering adding another light
(dual lights) or/and external flash accessory. The ideal
set-up is a combination of a light plus flash.
Consider purchasing the SeaLife Wide Angle Lens (SL975). The
fisheye lens allows you to get closer to the subject and fit more
into to picture frame.
For SeaLife camera with external light accessory (No external flash):
1) Set the camera's scene mode to Sea mode or Snorkel mode
2) Change camera's PHOTO and VIDEO White Balance
settings to DAYLIGHT.
For SeaLife camera with external light and flash accessories:
1) Set the scene mode to Ext. Flash mode
2) Change the VIDEO White Balance setting to DAYLIGHT.
For other underwater camera brands:
1) Set the Scene mode to "Auto" or "Underwater" scene
mode, as recommended by the camera manufacturer.
2) You may also need to change the White Balance setting to
DAYLIGHT depending on the camera's underwater color
correction or if pictures/video turns out red.
I will assume that you have already tried rotating the camera ninety degrees so that you take the shot in portrait format. Unless you can move the item outside to enable you to stand further back then your only option is to buy and fit a supplementary wide-angle lens to your camera or to use a different camera with a wider-angle lens than your camera has.
One other option is to take two photos and to then use special software to stitch them together (not ideal) or to take the best full length photo you can and then post supplementary photos showing the upper and lower halves of the desk.
If your flash has worked properly in the past, the camera may need to be serviced. If your subject is within 6 - 8 feet and is not being properly illuminated, something needs to be adjusted or replaced.
By specification, your flash will only adequately illuminate subjects out to 14 feet (wide angle) or 10 feet (telephoto). If you're trying to shoot subjects further away than that, the flash is not bright enough.
APS is the abbreviation for 'Advanced Photo System'. It will allow the photographer to choose the picture format separately for each frame (i.e. one panoramic, second normal, third wide angle and so on). This is usually connected to the 35mm still photograph cameras.
The cap is a plastic disk, usually black or silver, that snaps on at the end of the lens to keep the lens clean. Some lenses have two caps, one for each end when not attached to the camera.
Some cameras don't use a "loose" cap; those cameras generally retract the lens into the camera body and "close" a door in front of the lens.
Many, if not most, camera users do not use a cap (my guess).
The wide angle lens is generally an "optional" lens that can be used for group or scenery pictures when you want to shoot a "wide" picture. A "normal" lens is generally around 50mm (plus / minus 5mm). A wide lens is anywhere from 17mm to 24mm (or so).
Set camera up and aim at a blank wall. Place flash on camera, fire off test shots with camera set to flash sync speed and lens set to wide angle (eg 18 mm), ensure flash matches angle of lens.
You will probably have to turn auto focus off, so that camera will fire, after taking photo/s use review to ensure that you have a nice even coloured piece of wall.
Any problems either with camera sync problems or flash coverage will show up in the test shots.
Camera sync, will show as part of the frame only exposed, for example you may find a horizontal line approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of frame with a proportion of the frame dark.
If you have flash "drop off" you will find the corners of your frame will be dark, you need to ensure that your flash angle specified on the flash and the focal length of the lens match.
Hope this helps
It may be that your subject is too far away. The range of your internal flash is 12 feet if you have the ISO set for Auto, or 23 feet if the ISO is set for to 1000. You may get
acceptableresults with the ISO set to 1000 without the flash, but you should put the camera on a tripod (the shutter speed could be as low as 1/8 of a second) and use set the zoom for wide angle (the lens lets in almost 8 times the light as it does in maximum telephoto.)
Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top and bottom?
What we are looking at is if you have a very wide angle lens with the lens shade attached to the lens, then the built-in flash catches part of the lens shade and make a shadow on your subject... take the lens shade off and try the same shot and see if that makes a difference...
