I don't think my camera will allow me to change aperture or ISO. I don't know much about any of this but it does not mention how to alter either of tose things in the manual. I use a Nikon Coolpix L4 it is a little bit older for a digital but it works fine help please
First make sure image mode is on high.
Second put the camera in "macro" mode
Shooting mode is probably fine in auto.
Finally, your camera doesn't have the ability to change aperture or ISO manually so just hope for the best. You might also try sports mode. These settings will get you usable shots, but they won't be AMAZING. IMO you need to invest in a camera that can adjust iso, shutter, and aperture in order to take great shots. As far as the point and shoots go I believe some have these options. Oh and don't use the digital zoom. As far as suggestions for a new camera look at the Powershot SX100 IS.
