How to do a close up shot?


  • If you mean you want to know how to zoom (bring distant things closer): on the back of your camera (on the screen's side), near the top, there will be a couple of buttons marked "T" (meaning Teli: brings closer) and "W" (meaning Wide: covers a wider range) pressing the "T" will bring far images closer.
  • If you are referring to taking pictures of objects very close to the lens: Find the option called "macro focus" (commonly accessed by pressing the "left" key while in normal photo mode) this will let your camera focus at very small distances (about 5cm from the lens)

There's something wrong with the focus of my camera. Everytime I take a picture it's blurry and it won't focus unless I zoom in. Is there a way for me to fix it?


ensure finger is not covering auto focus.

ensure camera is not in macro setting. look for icon like a flower this is only for close up shots and will cause bluring if subject is too far away.

check that camera is set in auto focus and not manual focus mode if it has this.


I hope this was helpful.

Canon Powershot SD850 won't focus in zoom setting. It is not set on a macro setting - it is in full auto, portrait.


Not a solution, I'm afraid. Everyone who bought this camera is regretting it for this very reason. It's a design fault, but Canon are not admitting to it.

The camera will not focus when I try to take up-close shots. Such as an eye. I would like to photograph just an eye but whenever I try to zoom or walk in close enough the camera refuses to focus, haha....


Normally the closest focus you can get is 1.6 ft at W and 3.0 ft at T. In Macro mode you can get down to 3.9 inches. In Super Macro mode you can get even closer.

To get into Macro mode, press the Flower button until the flower appears on the LCD. To get into Super Macro mode, keep pressing the Flower button until an S appears inside the flower.

For full details, refer to your manual. In my copy, it starts on page 56.

Lcd is blurred, but when you took the photo the picture is very fine.


When you are taking the picture are you following the correct procedure? Press shutter button and hold half way till camera focuses. Then without releasing it press it fully down.

When zooming in for a close shot it will not focus


When using the tele, the closest you can be to a object is probably more that one meter. If you need to get closer you should switch to macro mode.

Focus


Your camera has the ability to shoot Macro and Super Macro, although in some Dial Modes, you can't use Macro.

To engage the Macro mode, press once the button on the left side of the lens/camera that looks like a Flower. To engage the Super Macro mode, press and hold the same button for more than one second.

Macro mode range 3.9 in. - 1.6 ft
Super Macro mode range is 0 in. - 3.9 in.
To cancel Macro mode, press the Flower icon button once.
Zoom levels are limited, and you will know that when the zoom bar turns yellow. This means the zoom is not available at that zoom level.

Problem in Manual Focus of Canon Powershot A510


Some how it seems the auto focus- which in macro mode is looking at something else[because of parallax]is over riding your manual focus attempts. Check the manual carefully to see if there is a mention here for special things to do for close work or contact the Canon Technical Support

Decrease the DOF


DOP decreases with longer focal lengths. This means you would want to stand further away from your subject and zoom in, instead of standing close and taking a wide angle shot. The macro mode is still a good idea, though.
