Customer Question

Have a C-740 Ultra Zoom digital camera. My question is in regard to getting a close up picture of a "stamp" (collectible stamp collector) to upload for sale on EBay.
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: C-740, about 10 years old
JA: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Using the manual on page 19, Manual says "allows pictures to be taken as close as 3cm or 1.2" from the subject. The manual shows the picture icon of a tulip with a small S in front of it. I cannot fine any information in the whole manual on HOW TO GET A SMALL "S" IN FRONT OF THE TULIP?? I get the black tulip icon in the camera tab, but not with an S in front. This should solve my problem. My name is*****: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Welcome to the site! I'm Dan, and I'd be happy to help. The "S" stands for "Super." As in, super macro mode. This is precisely the mode you should be using to take pictures of a stamp for eBay.

In the camera tab, scroll all the way down until you see the "S" w/the tulip. It should be below AF MODE and before PANORAMA. Then switch the mode on, and then OK to exit the menu.
