4Shooting Close-ups

When you want to photograph flowers or small things up close, use the <4> (Close-up) mode. To make small things appear much larger, use a macro lens (sold separately).

Shooting Tips

Use a simple background.

A simple background makes the flower, etc., stand out better.

Move to the subject as close as possible.

Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenses have indications such as <40.25m/0.8ft>. The lens minimum focusing distance is measured from the <V> (focal plane) mark on the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject, the focus confirmation light <o> will blink.

Under low light, the built-in flash will fire. If you are too close to the subject and the bottom of the picture looks dark, move away from the subject.

With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.

If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the subject look larger.
