eClose-ups (Macro and Super Macro Modes)

Macro mode can be used for close-ups in A, E, D, C, B, SP (T, V, and, W), P, S, M, and C modes (pp. 36–46). Macro mode is automatically selected in Vand Wscene modes; to select macro or super macro mode in other modes, press the selector left (e) to cycle through macro options as shown below.


Choose from e(macro mode), f(super macro mode), or g(macro mode off )

When macro mode is in effect, the camera focuses on subjects near the center of the frame. Use the zoom control to compose pictures. In super macro mode, zoom can not be adjusted and the flash can not be used. Super macro is not available in C, V, and Wscene modes.

To exit macro mode, press the selector left (e) until gis displayed. Macro mode can also be cancelled by turning the camera off or selecting another shooting mode.


Use of a tripod is recommended to prevent blur caused by camera shake.

Flash compensation may be required when using the fl ash (pg. 85).
