Since the Canon A610 doesn’t have a Copy Scene Mode, you’re going to set the camera manually to copy documents and things of that nature. You can also copy pictures. You can take pictures of pictures and copy books.
Basically, in order just to set the camera, I would recommend using the Program Mode. That’s going to give you the amount of flexibility you’re going to want. And in the back, generally you’re going to want to turn the flash off. You can see the flash here is indicated as being on and you press the Up navigation button. You can see that’s indicated by the icon. And so now, the flash is off, that’s one thing.
The other thing depending on the lighting situation, if you’re taking it outdoors, you may have enough light, and you can maintain the low ISO setting. If you’re taking it indoors, at a library for example, you may want to change the ISO. So, what you’re going to want to do is press the Function button here in the center and that will allow us to access the function menu. Then here, the first thing is ISO speed and what you’re going to do is increase that. I’m just going to press the right navigation button here to get to 400. You can use 200. You’re going to want to play around with that a little bit. It really depends on the lighting situation, how much light you have to go with.
The other thing depending on what source of light you have. You may want to—I’m going to press down here. You might want to change the White Balance. Auto White Balance is okay but you might get better results if you choose the light temperature that you’re using in your current scene. So, if you are outdoors. And for example, you laid down the document on the ground or on a table and you want to take a picture of it, you can just move that over to Day Light. If you’re indoors and it's incandescent lighting, you can change that to Tungsten. And if you’re using Fluorescent lighting as I am right now, you can change that to Fluorescent and that’s about it.
For these settings, press the Set button to exit this menu. Now, you’re going to want to probably use the Macro Mode. So here, you can see the flower icon indicates the Macro Mode so we just press the Down navigation button. And now here, indicated by the little flower, you can see that under the macro setting and that’s going to allow me to focus close-up.
So now, you have the ISO set properly. The White Balance set properly. And you’re in the Macro Mode so you can focus on the close objects. So, you just press the Shutter button. The Shutter button here, you’ll press it halfway and you want to wait for a double beep. Also, I got a single beep and my focus square is orange which means it's not in the focus so it did not lock a focus point. This focusing square should be green and the light here, it should be solid I suppose to flashing. And then you know the camera is locked and focused and you can take your picture and that’s it.
