Customer Question
I want to take...

I want to take a close up of a ring to send to another answer.com person and I do not know how to focus the camera if there is even a way.

Technician's Assistant: What camera mode are you shooting in? Does your camera focus better in some modes than in others?

I have not found any mode that lets me do closeups.

Technician's Assistant: Is your camera's lens clear of any dirt, scratches, or smudges?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I know. I am only trying to take a close up of a ring to try to learn the value and orig of it.
