The regular macro mode on the S2 is defective for all intents and purposes. Use the super macro mode.

Yes, yes! Thank you for saying it. I found that to be very true. I took some pictures yesterday using SM and they turned out much, much better (see topic S2 super macro I posted yesterday). I could not agree with you more.

Frustrating, isn't it? I can't get the camera to focus in regular macro mode at all.

It focus alright...but on the wrong object. I took some flower close-upsandfound the background to be on focus, not the flower. :?

I had a few focus issues initially in macro (this was shot in "macro"), but they'rebecoming fewer and fewer as I learn the camera and it's limits.



I still prefer super macro, however. :-)

Basically, i prefer macro mode when i want to see a bigger object...and super macro mode when i want to zoom in onto something.....just stating the obvious...

Here is a photo using macro mode...

Here is a photo of Super macro mode used when zoomed into the center flower...so, for me, I prefer both modes, but needs a lot of practice....and manual focus.
btw, photo taken in the kitchen... :G

Hi Jackco, I think you hit the nail right on the head.That explains whythe background of my macro shots was on focus. I'll try some more macro shots again tomorrow but this time, further from the main subject..
