    DefaultAssignment #5 help needed

    This photo I took using one of the preset modes...the close up mode...the tabasco bottle is about an inch tall.

    Date/Time: 2007:02:15 10:49:48
    Resolution: 800 x 533
    Flash used: No
    Focal length: 9.3mm (35mm equivalent: 56mm)

    It looks like the tabasco bottle is too close for the camera to focus on in manual. It's focusing on the stuff behind it. Try stepping back just a little and taking the picture again. Each lens has a minimum focusing distance.

    It could be because it has a close up mode. I'm just guessing here.

    hmm yeah I did set it in the preset close up mode. Which is why I am confused. If it does it in a preset mode why couldn't it do the same effects in the manual mode? Do these kinds of digital cameras have limitations in the manual mode which they do not in preset auto modes?

    The more I am learning about photography the more this camera confuses me! :P

    Thank you all for teaching us all this stuff btw! I am really enjoying it and appreciate all the input

    Lenses that can take very close up shots are call Macro lenses. They have something special about them that allows them to shoot close up when in Marco mode. Don't ask me what it is, I don't know. If they're not in that mode, they can't focus that close. It's possible that the close up mode has something similar that isn't on in manual mode.
