Can only take pictures close up

I can take closeup pictures using the manual setting, but cannot take buildings or mountains - it makes a sound as if it is autofocusing,but won't actually take a picture

    What lens are you using? It sounds as if you're using a macro lens and have the focus limiting switch set to macro.

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

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.

When I took pictures to get the details of the subject in close up, it was blurry . my camera is canon power shop S51s


I am assuming that you did not set your camera for closeup work, which is why it was out of focus. Try setting for closeup (tulip icon usually) and see if that does not solve the problem. If you did set for closeup it is possible that the lens is dirty or smudged which will cause focus problems when doing close in work. Hope this helps.

When I switch on the camera the LCD screen shows a smudged image at whatever it is pointing at, please advise?


Do you have it set for closeups? Mine has one and it's placement made it easy to hit by accident just pulling it out of the case,

So I shoot all the beautiful pictures, including mule deer, in the wenatchee state forest in the mountain range onyl to find out, when I got home and saw them on a larger screen they appeared blurry and smudged.

How far is the image from you? Try a closeup on a flower, if it clears up you know it's switched.

Otherwise clean the lense with a lens kit.

Hello :) I have a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera...8.1 mega pixels! I am no Photographer and find that the manuals speak a language that is hard for me to understand :( My question is: I take closeup shots...


To "up the exposure a bit" you need to dial in positive exposure compensation. Since you didn't specify what model camera you have, I can't give you specific instructions on how to do that.

To reduce digital noise ("grain"), put more light on the subject. Use the flash if needed. Set the ISO as low as possible, assuming your camera allows you to set it.

Use a tripod or other stable platform.

Use any part of the zoom range, as appropriate for the picture.

I would suggest that you go to a bookstore or your local public library and browse through the photography section. An introductory book will explain much of the language, making the manual more comprehensible.

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.

I wanted to take close up pictures so I could sell items on ebay what would be the best settings and any other tips


Get out your owners manual and look for the closeup section. If you don't have a closeup setting, you can always shoot from further back and then crop the pictures. I'm sure you received a picture modification program on a CD with your camera. If you did not there are lots of free photo software on the web. Look for Picasa, Infanview, Photo studio 5, and others.

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

There is usually a setting on the camera that is for closeups. It may be like a flower image or something on the little wheel at the top you have to set it on. I would suggest looking it up in your owners manual.
