2) Best distance to object
Depending on the macro lens in
use the best distance for taking
dental shots might be in between
16 - 21.5 cm. You should use the
display instead of the view finder
because of parallax movement and
for ergonomic reasons.
16 - 21,5 cm
3) Improving depth of focus
Adjust depth of focus In the Pmode the Canon A650
automatically sets the shutter
speed and aperture with
acceptable depth of focus. If
desired, you can influence the
depth of focus by manually setting
the camera’s aperture and shutter
speed.Turn the mode dial to the Mmode. The display will show an M
in the upper right corner. To select
shutter speed or aperture value,
press the button, then adjust the
value using the
button.
The higher the number, the smaller
the aperture, thus more depth of
focus. The aperture you select also
depends on whether the zoom is
set more to the W or T side. One
can shoot pictures without using a
tripod up to a shutter speed of 1/60
of a second.

adjusting the ISO Speed
