Default LOOK AT MY NICE PICTURES WITH THE A70 !

I bought a Canon Powershot A70 Yesterday and these are the pictures that I've taken with it.. I had to set the quality at medium in Photoshop cause they were too big...
The pictures are in Macro and In Auto Mode.
HERE IS THE LINK FOR MY PICTURES: http://membres.lycos.fr/bulletinnnn/pictures.htm[/u]

hey. these pictures are quite good for the first day.
I got my A60 last friday, and I'm really happy with it, too.

did you take this picture using close up lens or not ? Because it looks to macro for A70.

That was might thoughts too.

I have a a60 and I can not get that close with macro even if I use the manual Focus for them.

The focal length for the macro on a60 is 1.7inches without the optional lens. Didn't think the a70 would be differenet, of course you can get a higher resolution image.

Nice pictures though

hehe, don't underestimate the abilities of the Canon A70/60.
The macro mode is really great, and it looks like he cropped the part of the makro.
3 MP should be enough to crop such a big and detailed part of the picture.

I really like the macro capabillity af the A70 too.
Suprised me, that a grasshopper-picture of mine was so clear (no close-up lens - just the A70). It's a very small grasshopper (only 1 inch / 3 cm. long. A baby?)

I'm only just beginning to learn about my A70.

oh. really nice this one.
it seems to be a grasshopper baby, because he doesn't have that much color yet.

Here's shot i took some days ago of a little bug. It was about 2cm.

They dont look TOO MACRO at all. It looks about right with the a60 and a70. I would just mess with the exposure a lil. Some of the picks are a lil too bright.
Keep up the great shooting.....

I took those pictures without special lenses.
I really like the A70 because it can take good macro pictures at 5 centimeters.

Has anyone used any off brand or non canon brand lenses?
