Default Canon S30 - Macro Shot - blurred?

Hi Digifriends,

I just bought my very first digital camera - Canon S30. When I take macro shots with or without flash on Auto the photos come out blurred. What am I missing or doing wrong? Cheers!

are you using a tripod to shoot. a macro shot has shallow depth of field so movement, ever so little, will cause blurring.
also depending on the chosen aperture your depth of field again is shallow causing some part of the image to be out of focus.

in true macro work a tripod is almost mandatory


this is a quicky i did in the past 24 hrs. done on a tripod and self timer.
