Hi everyone,

I have recently been getting lots of pms regarding my camera, which apparently takes really awesome close up pictures (sometimes they are so detailed, they scare me!)

I just thought I'd answer all the q's once and for all, right here:

Image

I have a canon elph powershot sd200--a very old model from around 2004 that at the time cost me about $250.00. They now have come out with sd300, sd400, sd500, sd600, sd700, and the new sd800, all of which have much higher megapixels and excellent features. I (as well as many other people on this forum) highly recommend this digital camera for crisp, detailed, and user-friendly point and shoot. the battery is a canon battery and lasts very long, and it is very tiny and cute and not too heavy. it can be both manual and auto and takes excellent far away photos too! Here is a link to a review of the most recent model (former models can be purchased on ebay from reputable camera stores for a great price):http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canonsd800is/

And FYI, I change the mode to either macro mode or digital macro mode (everyone's camera is different, but most should have these modes) and then take the pictures at close range in high light conditions, no flash.

I hope that helps, and sorry I elected to do a message instead of replying to everyone!

That is so funny ava - i was going to ask you how you get such close up pics - I don't know how to get so close up, i have a nikon coolpix S9. I have to play with it and see if it has a macro mode. I want to take some close ups of my lashes/brows for comparison since I just ordered the talika lipocils for each area.

Hey, this is so cool. I plan to investigate my Kodak tonight to see if it offers other modes than auto which is what I was using last night and a month ago. I know it got some other modes, but not sure what they are exactly.

i don't know if it is any help, but my camera has a button on the back of the camera that you can press that changes from the symbol of a tulip-like flower to a symbol of a mountain--flower means macro and mountain means far away/panoramic mode. it also had digital macro (floweer with a D) mode as one of its "modes" (i.e. auto, manual, night, kids and pets, portrait, etc). in general i think that the sign of a flower means macro--just circle through all of your modes and see if there is this option, and then play with different lighting and focusing. hth!

Laughing Wow, I don't think it would ever fit in my purse! No, seriously, I am so glad that I can see all of the dets on the front of the camera. I love my Canon but it's got too many gizmos going on and it's actually sort of big and heavy -- it's a PowerShot S1 IS and I got it a few years ago. I've been wanting to downsize for trips so yours is one that I am going to look into.

Oh my gosh ... I feel so silly! Here I was lusting after your awesome camera because of the great close up photos it can take and I was telling my boyfriend how I'd love one like it, and then ... he just showed me that MY camera has a macro button too. Actually, looking at it ... there's alot of buttons on there I have never used nor know what they do. Laughing All these years I've had it and never even noticed that button ... duh! Laughing Maybe I should have taken the time to actually learn how to use my camera beyond the "automatic" mode. Haha! Anyway, I'm super excited now that I can take some good close up photos to judge better how my skin care routine is doing. He took a test shot and it was like "wow"! It shows so much detail.

You know, if I had never read this post, I would never have found out mine has that option! Very Happy

Wow thanks for the post on the macro mode in the camera. I have a coolpix and never understood the macro probably because i did not try it in high light. Thanks for the info, I will now fool with it rather than rushing out to buy another one.
