My Nikon Coolpix Camera

Ok, so I decided a month ago to buy a new camera thinking it would take better pictures. NOT.

I am contemplating throwing my camera across the room. I never thought a camera could cause high blood pressure... Seriously, I hate it.

All week long I have been working on new lentil beads that I have put alot of time into. Each bead is sanded by 3 different grits of sandpaper and buffed. Then I put a high gloss finish on them and they actually look like glass. Excited, I wanted to get the pictures and list on Etsy. NOT.

The camera is on the macro mode and no matter what I do it will not focus. Every picture is blurry. Changed the lighting and it is worse. I'm not sure if it is because they are so glass like. I don't have a clue what to do.

So in order to control my Irish temper, I decided I would write about it and maybe someone out there has the same problem and can tell the camera idiot what to do. Oh, I know, got to the bookstore and buy Camera for dummies.

Don't know nuthin' about cameras but check your lens setting. If your camera is set on telefoto (I think that's the longer distance) setting, macro shots will come out blurry. At least that's what happens on my camera. Maybe take it to a camera store and have someone help you out? GOod luck!

I think I figured it out!

Oh no Terri! Camera store personnel might be able to help you--but I rely on the manual for situations like this. I'm trying to figure out my SansaDisk player right now! Good Luck!
