Hey everyone, I got a new camera yesterday a Canon PowerShot S3 IS to be excact. I've been reading the little book but it does not give enough information. I seen online there's this Pro Canon S3 IS user guied book but I don't buy online. So I have a few questions if anyone could help! I like taking photos of birds and other animals so what is the best mode to use so my photos don't turn our blurry because I really hate using flashes as I think they make nature look unreal. I also try taking Macro shots of flowers and even when I keep my hand still it gets just a touch blurry in the photos. This camera was used 2 times from the previous owner so maybe they switched some things around.. there's SO many bottons and I'm doing my best to figure them out. :blushing: For both photos below I used the P Mode. As you can see in this photo the tree is not as clear as it should be, I also zoomed up so maybe that's the problem. In this photo it's nice but I see somthing wrong but I'm not sure what it is, I think it's how not clear enough it is.
