I was playing with an old point and shoot camera and I made this close-up photo of a pepper:
I took many photos and it seems I can’t get a sharp image across the whole object. Can I make this better with settings? Is 8 megapixels not enough?
Or is my point-and-shoot camera really that bad that the only chance of improving this image is with a new camera body and a better lens (macro lens)? If so, what cheaper options do I have (beginner lens + extension tube)?
My settings: f7.1 1/4 sec ISO-80 Camera model: Canon PowerShot S5 IS Focal length: 6mm
I took another photo: The front side seems sharp enough but how can I make the left side that is further away from the camera just as sharp? f/8 1/5 sec ISO-80
