Hope I can improve on that cause I have the feeling the blurs come more from a focus problem.

I used a syringe for my drops and focused manually to the numbers on it.
Af can also be used the same way, set to center-AF and hold the shutter-half-way to focus then make drops and press it fully.
I like the manual-focus better. :D

Amazing waterdropts, Coutts!

Would you mind giving us the actual settings? I am using the Allbest#50 on my SD1000 and even though I set the shutterspeed to 1/100K I am only getting 1/1500 according to the preview. I am shooting in manual mode so as to activate the flash. Everything is totally blanched out.

Am awfully jealous of your pictures!

at that speed it shouldnt be blanched out, my guess is that the speed isnt used at all. do you have in display the override tv settings?

honestly? i dont have a clue how to use the manual focus on my sd1000 (only have it in chdk) :lol

For those pics i just set it in manual mode, set the shutter speed override to 1/100,000th of a second (i know it wont go that high but that was to achieve the highest speed possible) and set the metering mode or w/e to macro.

the SD1000 doesnt have and ajustable flash output. This was just autofocus and alot of shots lol

(A720IS, 1/16000, manual mode, flash at minimum power)


The last kind is a bit difficult to get :\

I've been trying to take these types of photos and my pictures are totally washed out.  How do you modify the flash power on an A530?
