I am not overly thrilled with the macro results. I would upload one but I deleted them all. Maybe I got spoiled with my canon on macro. Attached is from Canon a640. I thought I would compare with the s600fd and now I wish I had not done that..



here is a macro from my canon, I haven't seen the s6000fd do this well.



PS.. The 1st part of this post is the delusion of a tired photographer.. As you follow the post you will notice the he came out of his stupor..

Here is a s6000fd sample. I don't think it has as good crispness as with the canon.. I had to shapen it about 4 steps..

I wouldn't blame the camera yet, at least not based on that one pic you posted. The pic was out of focus, overexposed, and you have your camera internal sharpness set on 'soft'. You can't make that look crisp after the fact. There may not have been enough contrast in that scene to get a lock with AE. You may want to try manual focus in those instances. You may also have been outside the recommended macro distance. Check your manual.

The S6000 is better than that...keep trying.

I agree.. You are absolutly right!!! I did the s6000 late and I am sure I was a bit tired..

The s6000/9100 still rank very high and I know working with this camera will produce a very high quality product..
Thanks for your reply..


It's all good!!!

PS.. Thanks for the slap in the face.. I needed that...lol

Ok...after working this camera for a couple of days here is a macro that I think is on par with and maybe better than the comparison

Yeah, I'd say you've gotten the hang of it. That last photo is great!
