    Are we gonna set up a guideline for Macro? Because some of these really aren't close.

    Read the original post. I did not limit it to true macro shots only, because hardly anyone would post as not very many people have the equipment to do true macro shots.

    I agree but some of these are more like close-ups than macro, It's all good though...just checkin.

    Will have a couple "true" macro pics later when I get the time to edit them. This is just a crop of a "macro mode" shot from my Canon S3.

    nice shot, little over saturated in some spots but there was probably no helping that.

    A couple of pics taken with my new Raynox DCR-250 Macro lens. These are handheld indoors, which is extremely difficult to do with a magnification lens like this. I had to use F2.7 for enough speed to get clear shots since they are handheld, which limited the Depth of Field.

    100%, no cropping:





    I will use an aperture of F8 the next chance I get at outdoor macros which increases the Depth of Field (area of picture that is in focus) since its so paper-thin with this macro lens. With a steady hand and IS though handheld is certainly possible with this setup.

    Check your manual to find your camera's min and max focusing distance in macro mode. That is the range you have to be in for proper macro focus.

    The camera is a Canon Powershot S3 IS. Using the Raynox DCR-250 macro lens gives a magnification of 2.5x allowing you much closer shots. You need to be at max telephoto to use the lens.

    I find focusing doesn't really matter much because if you move the camera back and forth that serves as manual focus as well. I got identical results setting manual focus, and just leaving it and moving the camera similar to using a handheld magnifying glass.

    The depth of field is very small and you have about a 1cm "window" to be in otherwise you see nothing. I can't get very close to the object, probably 6 inches or so away but I didn't measure it.

    This gives me the ultimate in versatility - pop on the macro lens for extreme close-ups, take it off for a 36-432mm focal range with a 2.8-8.0 aperture range, optical image stabilization, continuous burst shooting, and basically a built-in camcorder all in one package. I also have a circular polarizer that I make good use of, 2x4gb SD cards that I fill regularly, and a set of batteries that last me over 1000 shots every time.

    I've got my bases covered

    Except for low-light shooting and any time I would like high ISO...things this camera cannot do well unfortunately. If it did though, Canon wouldn't really have any competition.

    Thats pretty nice for sure.
    I do the same thing on my camera when doing macro shots, set it to manual and move to get things in focus.

    leoftw, your first shot is too far away to be considered a macro shot

    The second one shows good detail though.

    Marco I like the second one a lot!

    Can we stop quoting pics...it makes threads sooo long. Just number your pics when you post so people can refer to them.
