Cameras

Everyone on here seems to be able to take eprfect pictures of their bettas, but all I get its blurry blobs, so i was wondering ids there a setting on most cameras or something that would help take close up shots of bettas? Or atleast help it focus? I would love to get some picks up of my new ones but I cant get any good pictures.

What kind of camera are you using.. point and shoot, phone camera or SLR? what ever your using use a higher film speed. and plenty off light. no flash.

i use a Fuji film S5100. its inbetween a SLR and a Power shot. i use the Miro setting the most ( the little flower icon) and somtime ill use zoom with the micro setting. but if you Don't have eather of those go to my website for tips on cameras and getting good shots.

I think they meant "of light"
I believe they still do have macro buttons. It's the flower button, then just get up to the tank and it should adjust itself. I find that it's best to turn the room lights off and just have the tank lights on. That plus the macro setting should be enough for good shots.
