I just have one of those cheapie Nikon coolpix..... I've fucked around with the settings a bunch, but can't take a photo super close up. Like of a pregnancy test? like the ones everyone posts looking for "linespotters". I've attempted to take a photo with my cell and this camera and they all come out super blurry..... Any help???
Try the macro setting, usually depicted with a flower symbol.
Back off and then use your zoom.
I have a nikon cool pix too.
ETA how to change it(on mine) when its on and the preview shows up on display.. The dial on the right has a flower on the bottom..press that twice so it goes down to macro and press the ok button
