Hi vwmom. You sure can! I've noticed that you participate quite actively in this forum, specially when the subject has to do with the S2. So, I was wondering how come you have not given us your 2c worth on the macro/super macro subjects. My son is very much into trains andused to love Thomas the Tank Engine. We have a box full of Thomas stuff!!! You shot looks quite clear. Can you take a similar photo with your S2 set to macro rather than SM? I'm curious to see the difference (if any).

I've actually only in the last couple days started to play with macro...

It seems in normal macro mode, manual focus works superb (the pic of his face).. and in supermacro.. prettymuch idiot proof.

Check out the other thread (S2 macro mode). Jackco's explanation goes along very well with what you are saying. Macro works OK as long as you are not trying to focus on a small object. If you want to really get close to something small andmore three-dimensional ( a flower for instance), then SM is the way to go.

Tullio-

Just great shots you have there in super macro. I too use SM quite often and in fact have placed the SM settings in the "Customized" mode for quicker access.

Thanks, hawks1. When you say customize button are you referring to the "short cut" button? I have mine set to AE lock since SM is already a button on itself.

I think he is reffering to the "C" mode on the turn dial itself, as the custom mode. But as far as the shortcut button, I know I generally prefer to have it set to control IS settings, as I cant say I have had much need for the AF or AE, but I think I may have to start giving it a try here pretty soon.

I think you are right about the Csetting on the dial. I find the IS in shooting mode to be the most efficient, so I don't mess with it.

Tullio-

Yes, I'm referring to the "C" mode on the turning dial itself. I've got my shortcut button set for changing the ISO.
