Ok... today I played with the close-upand low-light settings. I'm more than happy with this camera... not much it can't do.
Here is a close-up with my favorite watch. Pretty good detail. I was just using the available light in the kitchen steading the camera with my elbows, no tripod.
This is what I call macro!
This is shot in my bathroom on tripod using the program mode in TOTAL darkness.
This is fuzzy due to high ISO, but C'mon, it was shot in TOTAL
darkness in my bathroom using the "night-shot" button on top left side of camera. Of course I had to use a tripod for this shot!
