Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
I have a powershot S3 IS. I'm having a very hard time with the close up macro functions. I turn on the "flower," switch the camera to M, AV or P (I've tried them all) and hold the camera within 4" of the subject. I do not use the zoom. And still, the pictures are super fuzzy, obviously not focused. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
First make sure the lens is clean. Now set the dial to P mode. Hold down the flower button for a few seconds and the camera will go into "super macro" mode - keep watching the screen or the viewfinder until this happens. You might also feel the zoom resetting itself. You can now go right up to the subject, literally almost touching it - be careful not to damage the lens by hitting the subject! I think in normal macro mode 4" is too close.
