Photographing Coins in Marco Mode

How do I get the sharpest image of a coin in Macro Mode. It seems that I can take pictures at various short distances from the coin and they all seem to be focused on the LCD. But when I download the image and enlargen the photo none of the images are as clear as if I were looking through a magnifying glass. Do I need a stand to connect the camera to whereby I can use a knob on the stand to adjust the distance from the camera to the coin? And if so, how can I determine from the LCD that I have achieved the best focus possible.

Thanks in advance to all those who reply...............

You may find that manual focus gives you the best result - you can also use the focus bracketing (it takes 3 pics - one either side of what you have selected) will give you sharper images. dont forget that the best resilts will come when the camera is supported!

You can use the LCD and just zoom in loads until you can see minute details and you can then see if you have a good focus....

Everytime i turn on my vivicam 7024 and press the flash it says "marco mode no flash". how can i fix it?

The macro mode is for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera. In this mode the flash does not operate.

There's a slide switch on the end of camera. Slide it away from the flower and toward the mountain to take the camera out of macro mode.

Best settings for close up

That depends. A true macro lens allows you to get a 1:1 reproduction ratio; most manufacturers call a lens "macro" if it allows 1:4 or so. Some lenses work better for close work if you reverse them, using a reverse adaptor to put the nose of the lens onto the mount. Bellows and extension rings behind the lens will give you sharper results than close-up adaptors that screw onto the front of the lens.

The focal length will affect perspective; to get the same image size with a wide angle lens, you'll have to get closer, wihch will make the background seem smaller and farther away. You don't have to get as close with a longer lens, which will make the background seem larger and closer.

The aperture affects depth-of-field. If you're photographing something flat, like a piece of paper, you don't need much DoF. If you're photographing something three-dimensional, you'll need more DoF.

The exposure mode might depend on the lighting conditions and your personal preferences. I tend to do most of my close-up work in Manual. I also tend to focus manually, for better control.

There's no one set of "best" settings for close-up photography, any more than there's a set of "best" settings for any other type of photography.

I'm trying to take pictures of rare coins for sale on ebay. Help!!!

If your camera has the capability you will want to take pictures using the macro function on your camera. It has an icon that looks like a flower. It lets you take closeup pictures, which would be helpful for the coins. You will want to place the coins on a plain background with plenty of light shining on the coins from above and also another light from the side. Multiple lights will give your pictures some more depth to the coins. Make sure that the angle that you are taking your pictures doesnt have any glare. Hope that helps!

Putting a photo onto fifa 09

Not knowing anything about this application, I can say that many of these apps require a JPG of a small size, such that they cannot exceed a specific size. If they do, they won't display, or not properly.
Try making your JPG or video image smaller than 96 dpi by 96 dpi. Also, if you are not using a JPG image, but a GIF or a TIFF, it simply might not want that kind of an image.

Cannot get clear close-ups

Recommend not using flash. The first thing is that your subject should be well lit. Try placing it on a lighter background with good lighting around it. Also recommend using a tripod to keep the camera steady, and setting and using the camera's timer to take the photo (this also helps keep the camera steady). The closest auto-focused macro shot that the S200 takes is around 1 foot from the subject. Depress the shutter button halfway to verify that the subject is in focus (one of the three squares on the LCD should turn green on the subject). Next depress the shutter button all the way to take the photo.
