Maybe this is too out there to be tackled here.

I seem to have a really hard time taking pics of my minis.

I have a canon Powershot A60.

Close up shots end up blurry as hell.

I'd like to figure this out so I can post more mini pics.

Anyone?
Bueller?

I'm not exactly a camera whizz but Macro mode usually works for me also using a tri-pod should help reduce the blur.
Or Is that a bit too obvious? :?

I think I've found macro mode now. Just tinkering around and I think I got it. Thanks man.
No probs, looking forward to the pictures! :wink:

Macro, and, to focus the camera, place your hand behind the mini.

It should then focus on the mini.

Slowly move your hand away.

I dont know your camera capabilities but this is what I do witha seven mega pixel one. Take the picture from a reasonable distance and crop it to size in a picture editing program.

Works a treat with a camera with lots of pixels, now if I could just get the lighting sorted.

I zoom in full and take the picture from about a metre and a half away, use alot of light and a white background...
