I'd say 'Could you please take a picture of me using this camera?'

Can you take my picture, please?

"Could" sounds more polite. If the person is your friend or family member, then using "can" is okay. Nobody will get mad at you for using colloquial English like they will for using colloquial words in other countries, but people are more likely to do things for you if you use polite, formal words.

Even more polite: "Would you mind taking my picture, please?"

If you know a website that contains a collection of daily English conversations, could you show me, please?
