Ok I just got this Cannon powershot A85. I do love it. When I tried to macro this flower out side my house. I get a huge noise problem in the picture. I use manuel settings on the cam. Manuel focus at 5cm 1/13 and F7.1 I just wanted a very nice clear detailed pic.

heres the pic.

This is the noise issue
This is during the evening.

This is probly the best I could get one to come out

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I have an a510 which is very related to your camera. I get excellent results using the P mode and the built in macro setting (the flower). Very clear. I use vivid color, and center focus, eval. metering, auto iso, +1/3 exposure comp, white bal. auto, red eye off, dig zoom off, auto focus assist lamp on. Sometimes I adjust a little if the histogram shows I need to. Great macro photosabout 8 out of 10 shots. I think your camera has all the same settings.

A few examples, all taken with the flower setting from about 3" to 1', no tripod.
