Hi Jack,



I just want to know if setting ISO and Macro is possible... I'm really new with this, I saw some picture set with iso 80 so i was just wondering how to manually set ISO settings to 80, i tried to turn the options on top to ISO then tried the half click I always see on my lcd lwer left ISO2400 ISO 1600 and ISO2000, i wanted to know how to set this manually...



also I like the picture you took with the watch and I want to learn that hehe if it's ok for you to teach me this techiques. I would greatly appreciate it, Jack, I am really very new with photography, I think 1 week old hahaha and I normally do is click and shot then alight myself to the view that I want. if also you have some notes that i can read on about sony settings hehe thanks!

For the macro shot of my watch, I put it on Program, on a tripod and pushed the Marco on the dial wheel. Then make sure that it is in focus on the LCD when you either zoom or move the camera in closer.

You can find all the features and how to use the Camera here:

Click on: Cyber-shot® Handbook

This handbook tells you everything where as the manual that comes with the camers does NOT.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for the info that you gave me, I was also wondering if for the macro can this camera do the picture you did for the watch without any program or going to be impossible?

thanks,
Lex

Try the macro setting in auto and experiment.

Your best way to learn the camera is to experiment with different settings after you get tired of he auto setting.

Try putting it on macro and then move it in very close (while watching the LCD for sharpness) with it at 31mm or at the widest zoom. If I recall, I was about a couple inches or lessfrom the watch. You can also be back a few feet and zoom in. You need the tripod for sharp pictures in both methods.

Wwll... thank you Sarah... That means something coming from a expert like you.
