You've got an excellent camera, very capable of doing such. Would also recommend setting it to portrait mode, turning off the flash, selecting macro, and ensuring that you have plenty of good "diffuse" lighting. Most important of all, recommend using a tripod and taking the pictures using the camera's timer to activate the shutter. This will prevent camera shake as the shutter is activated allowing much sharper pictures.

Now, just in case, here's your camera's user manual as it also has great pointers for taking macro pictures.

Close-ups of jewellery


Are you handholding the camera? For macro photography you almost have to have the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

Is everything blurry? That probably indicates camera motion since I assume the jewelry isn't moving. If part of the picture is sharp, probably in the center, then it's a depth of field issue. The camera focuses a certain distance away, and anything not at that distance (closer or farther away) tends to blur. Unfortunately there's not much you can do to control depth of field with a point&shoot camera. See http://www.fixya.com/support/r9564373-controlling_depth_field.

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 can not change settings, for example, no flash to flash. When I go to take picture "Digital Macro" appears momentarrilly on display.


You're in the macro mode. Macro mode is for close-up shooting, and the flash is disabled in this mode.

Set the camera to the shooting mode (set the mode switch to the camera position). Press the FUNC/SET button. Use left/right to select a different mode and press FUNC/SET.

How do I set the macro setting on a Canon Powreshot A610 and how can I switch of the flash?


Press cursor-down to toggle the macro setting.
Press cursor-up to cycle through the flash modes.

The flash modes are described in the "Using the Flash" section of the Basic Guide (page 9 in my copy) and the macro mode in the "Shooting Close-ups (Macro)" section (page 10). If you need the manuals, you can download them from the manufacturer's web site at

Hi, Don't know how to obtain clear close up of small subject


Mount your camera on a tripod. Set it for "macro" mode. Turn off the flash. Light the jewelry with lamps (like worklight reflector clip on lamps) fitted with daylight balanced compact flourescent bulbs. Use poster paper of various colors for background. Set your ISO to 400. Set your white balance to "auto white balance". Have fun!

All of my close ups are blurry!


There should be a macro setting on your camera. It's usually indicated by a flower symbol. If you're doing any close up photography, macro should be enabled.
