Question about Jazz JDC25 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Jazz JDC25 cannot take closeup pictures without blurring. Is there a button or switch for macro mode that I can't find. Can it even do closeups?

    Thanks, pixeldawg. I was posting this question for an associate who is a newbie at this sort of thing and didn't know what he was doing. Your advice dovetails with what I thought was the problem. Since I had never seen the camera (or even heard of it - I shoot Nikon digitals) I couldn't be sure that the upgrade solution was the right one. The fellow I'm helping is trying to post mineral photos on Ebay, and they were all blurred. I was trying to teach him how to do it, but until he gets a better camera it won't be possible.
    Thanks again,
    Steve

According to the specifications for the camera, the focus range is from 19.62 inches to infinity, so anything closer than this will be progressively more blurred, depending on the distance. The camera has no macro focus options. The specs also say that this is a 0.3MP camera with VGA (640x480) resolution. Unless this is strictly a camera intended for web graphics, its' uses are quite limited anyway and an upgrade may be worth considering. Most modern point and shoot digital cameras have excellent macro abilities at a very reasonable price. To me, this might be worth considering. I like the Olympus lenses for macro work in this catagory and there are several others worth considering as well- Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and Panasonic all offer great options for close-up photography at reasonable prices.

Wish I could give you better news, but am guessing that camera is quite old.

Pictures out of focus except for closeups


You're apparently in the macro mode, which is specifically designed for closeups. To take the camera out of macro mode, slide the switch on the end of the camera away from the flower toward the mountain.

WHY WON'T THE CAMERA ZOOM ALL THE WAY?


HI,
The only thing I can determine looking at the camera, is that it may possibly be in the "Macro" (closeup) mode, or the "Super Macro" mode (closeup meaning inches away from the object).
On page 40 of the User manual it instructs which button to push and what the symbol looks like in the viewfinder. On many cameras if they are in the macro mode, it limits your ability to zoom, out or in.
Here is a link to the manual in case you need it.
Hope this helps you.
Best Regards,
Mark

Camera takes blank pictures on closeup.


Have you set the camera to "Micro" mode? Usually a button or dial setting with what looks like a Tulip on it.

Focus problem?


Hi

Yes, there is a 'macro mode' setting which is what you need to use to take closeup photos.

Put the mode dial on Auto in camera mode, and then press the 'macro' button, its the one with the little flower icon. The macro icon appears on your screen and you can now take closeup photos.

Have fun, darntoothysam com

Use of macro digital feature


hi,let me just inform u that the macro mode is only for outdoors.So on the side of the camera u will find a sliding switch.Just slide it to the opposite direction to turn off the macro mode.Since u wanted to take pictures of jewelry pieces,turn on the flash if u have one and then take a closeup shot with good lighting conditions.If its too bright then use only the flash,if u r not satisfied with the quality then use only lights and then take a pic.Still face any prob plz get back to me.

Picture focus problems


make sure there is no flower icon on bottom left corner of screen-very common on sony to hit macro button to turn on by accident and you will get blur-only for extreme closeup-hit flower button to turn off if on and let me know if that was the problem

Canon Powershot S2 IS Super Macro mode


Make sure your camera isn't zoomed in (full telephoto) The camera can't handle both full zoom AND super macro. Don't forget super macro goes from Zero to 20cm from the lens. Zoom completely out and you should be able to see something within that range. The biggest complaint I've heard about the S2 IS is if you take closeups of bugs the chances of the bug crawling onto your lens is pretty good.:-) Be very carefull of blocking light with the lens at extreme closeup too. Although the flash squelches well to allow for closeups it can leave a nasty shadow. If you're really serious about macro you'll find a ring flash would come in handy. BMW
