That is normal for many point-and-shoot cameras. At that distance the flash could blow out the imaging chip and/or may not line up properly with the lens' field of view.

When I try to turn my flash on it says macro mode, What is this and how do I fix it?


Macro mode is for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera. In this mode the flash is disabled.

Without knowing the model of your Digital Concepts camera I can't tell you how to take it out of macro mode. If there's a button on the back marked with a flower icon, press it. Otherwise look in the menu.

Why does my camera say macro mode when i try pitting the flash


There's a slide switch on the left side of the camera, near the USB port. Slide the switch away from the flower icon toward the mountain icon to switch it out of macro mode. The macro mode is for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera, and the camera won't fire the flash when in macro mode.

Whenever i want to turn the flash on, i press the flash icon and it says "macro mode" on the screen.


You can't use the flash in macro mode. Macro mode is for taking pictures of objects close to the camera.

To switch out of macro mode, slide the switch on the left of the camera, just above the USB port, away from the flower icon toward the mountain icon.

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

The CD that came with the camera will not load onto my computer. I need an instruction manual. I did figure out how to take, delete, ect. but for some reason the flash will not turn on and I get a message...


The flash will not fire in macro mode because macro mode allows you to get close to your subject. Get out of macro mode by pressing a button with a picture of a flower on it or by it.

When i try to turn my flash on it says Macro Mode


You're in macro mode and the flash won't function. Check your manual to find out how to get out of macro mode. Most cameras have a button or a dial with a picture of a flower representing macro mode. Find that and change it.

Shooting jewellery what settings macro, no flash + what


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.

How do I set the camera to Macro and can I turn


Page 16 of the user manual explains how to set up the camera for the macro mode. If you are using regular macro mode then you would also need to set the flash mode to off if you do not want it to fire automatically (page 15 of the user manual refers how to disable the flash). If you are using the super macro mode then the flash would be set to off by default.

I cannot get super macro mode


Turn the dial- the one that lets you select a mode. You have to be in certain modes to allow for super macro.... (I have a powershot S2) Try AV or manual, or a couple of others. There are a few that will not allow super macro. That's your problem. Good luck!

Canon Powershot S2 IS Super Macro mode


Make sure your camera isn't zoomed in (full telephoto) The camera can't handle both full zoom AND super macro. Don't forget super macro goes from Zero to 20cm from the lens. Zoom completely out and you should be able to see something within that range. The biggest complaint I've heard about the S2 IS is if you take closeups of bugs the chances of the bug crawling onto your lens is pretty good.:-) Be very carefull of blocking light with the lens at extreme closeup too. Although the flash squelches well to allow for closeups it can leave a nasty shadow. If you're really serious about macro you'll find a ring flash would come in handy. BMW
