How to enlarge MP to take a close up shot - Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera

    Your question is a little ambiguous.

    To change the resolution and hence the number of megapixels, select the Recording Pixels from the FUNC menu.

    To shoot close-ups (Macro mode), press the Macro button at the bottom of the round multiselector, marked with a flower.

    Do either of these cover what you wanted to know?

Sony rx100iii electronic viewfinder not working


Assign as an eye comes close to the view finder, the viewfinder should switch on and the display should switch off. When it really does not work correct, I would cal a Sony service centre close to me (in your case one close to you.)

What is the difference in the optical and digital zoom?


Hi,

Find the difference below

Digital Zoom

1. Digital zoom is a part of digital cameras, and camcorders, which helps to crop the entire image, and then digitally enlarge the size of the viewfinder of the portion that is needed to zoom in on
2. Digital zoom crops the image down to a centred area with the same ratio as the original, and also interpolating the result back up to the pixel dimensions of the original. this method involves cropping, hence the resolution and quality is reduced
3. Digital zoom, crops a portion of the image and then enlarges it back to size. And due to this, image quality is reduced in comparison with the original one.
4. Using the digital zoom allows the user to get closer to the subject when the photographer wants to be discreet about taking pictures, like taking a picture of a person in a graduation ceremony.

Optical Zoom

1. While taking a picture using a Camera to want to get a close shot of the subject without moving physically closer, photographers use the optical zoom.
2. The optical zoom ratio of a digital camera measures how much the lens can actually zoom in to make subjects appear closer. Optical zoom, enlarges a picture while keeping the resolution and sharpness of the picture high.

3. There is no relation between optical zoom and the resolution of the photo, as optical zoom only enlarges the whole image or the subject to a certain range. So image quality only depends upon the mega pixel (MP) of the camera

4. Optical zoom is very useful, while taking a picture of a landscape, or to get a closer view of a subject, without reducing the quality of the entire image, like taking a picture of a Rainbow in the sky.

Ron

I want to get really cose up picture with the camera how close can i get with the canon power shot a40?


In "macro" mode, you can get as close to your subject as 10.2 inches...then when you zoom in, the image will enlarge.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE MEXGAPIXEL (RESOLUTION) ON THIS CAM ?


You can enlarge a picture at any size. Just make sure you preview before the picture is printed.

Press the menu button. Move the controls to the size settings to the 5m mode.

The instructions are located on pg 36 of the owners manual:

Here is way to get a copy of it if you don't have one:

Reducing/enlarging on Canon MP 160


The only option I see that comes close to this is the "fit to page" option described on page 35 in the manual. Apparently, it detects the size of the original and enlarges it to fit on the paper size selected. Otherwise, I see no options for enlarging or reducing while copying.

Sony DSC-P72 close up photos


A common problem is that you have some 3.2 Megapixel (MP) and that image is all of 640x480 or 0.3072 M. That means you could move back from the camera, shoot at 3.2 MP then crop out a 640x480 image that may be in focus.
