Roni-

Here is the photo taken using the Zoom Macro technique.

To do this I did the following:

(1) I went into the SX-100 Menu and turned off the IS system.

(2) I pushed the ISO Button on the back of the SX-100 and manual set the ISO to 80.

(3) I mounted the SX-100 on the tripod, and re-checked that the Mode Selector was in the "P" position.

(4) I pushed the shutter release half way down to check the aperature and shutter speed that the SX-100 was going to use to take the photo.

(5) I slowly squeezed down on the shutter, being sure that I created no camera movement.

Suggestion: You could easily do use this technique outside in some soft shade.

Wait a minute...not to derail your train Sarah, but in another recent thread, you were touting the absolute necessity of having IS on a camera and that it was a must for any low light work, including that utilizing a light box.

Are you now saying that you can't use IS when the camera is on a tripod? Why not? Doesn't IS always make pictures better?

Jeff Keller over at www.dcresource recommends turning of the IS when the camera is on a tripod.

Folks-

I do not want to loose other folks who might be wondering what the Canon Sx-100 can do. Here is a flash photo example done at 15 feet at ISO 200.

Yes, I see the Red Eye in that photo too.

Lets make an adjustment to the photo to take care of that problem. You will note that the photo is nice and sharp.

Hi Sarah Joyce,

Please tell us why the IS should be turned off when the camera is on a tripod. I looked for the answer on the other website but could not find it.

I was asked for a side by side comparison of the Canon SX-100 and the Sony H-3. These two photos were taken one after the other and I tried to shoot them so you would have a direct comparison opportunity.

Here is the Canon SX-100 photo sample:



Here is the Sony H-3 photo sample:



Here is the Canon Sd-870IS photo sample:



I hope this helps.
