I recently purchase the fujifilm 5200 and it is advertised as that you can take closeup photos using the macro. I am trying to take a photo of a bottle and I would like to focus on the letters but I cannot. I'm using a tripod and am using the Auto setting and also the "M" setting, nothing seems to work. My distance is approx 6" to 10" from the object.

Any suggestions about the setting is appreciated.

I think the macro feature on your 5200 is very much the same as my 5100. When you have selected the macro setting, at the wide-angle position the camera can be as close as 3.9 inches. At the telephoto position the camera can be no closer than 3 feet. So make sure you are within those guidelines or you will not be able to get the camera focus. Try moving the camera further away from the subject.
