Well, I just read many reviews for the camera and overall pretty good. Especially, since it was rated Top 1 of digital cameras for PC Worlds Magazine.

My problem now is that, I just received it, I placed in the battery and memory card. Tried taking a close up picture, meaning 1-2 inches away from the object, and its pretty blurry. It seems to have no difference against my Canon Powershot A80. Is there something wrong I'm doing? I set the menus to 640x480 and the MF flower thingy and no flash. Please someone help me because I feel like I got ripped. LOL

There is HOPE!* So, let's give it a chance.*Can you look on the exif data and tell me the f/stop shutter speed combo?Was the green light solid when you pressed the shutter all the way down?Were you hand holding or using a tri-pod?I'll check back in later and see if we can narrow things down a bit.I HOPE the camera is not at fault here.* I read your frustration and empathize with you.*

Thanks for answering, well I am holding the shoot button to try to focus it out before actually taking the picture. So it is lit green before taking. I am using my hands not a tripod. But I highly doubt its my hands that are making the picture quality bad since I am comparing my A80 with the z750. And what is the exif data and so on. I'm not really familiar with cameras just alittle.

According tospecs the minimum macro range is 10 cm, about 4 inches.

If I am right then perhaps you should have researched a little more if you expected a 1 to 2 inch minimum macro capture distance....

yep, another friend of mine responded and showed me a really good review site. www.dpreview.com pointed out that the macro is very poor compared to other competitive digital cams. thanks guys

With 7.2 MegaPixels it seems to me that you don't really need to get that close for a good macro.

Here is a link to a macro of a coin that I took with the Z750:

Hope this helps...

Z750 with a combination of reverse lenses trick can deliver unexpected results for this type of camera. Take a look at images and discussion here:
