It depends on your distance from the subject. SM will almost let your lens touch the subject while Macro won't. And, to compound things, if you put a Macro filter lens on, such as the Raynox DCR-250, you must shift into Manual Focus (at least that's what happens for me YMMV). Lighting is a whole other animal with SM. I normal use a full-spectrum fluorescent bulb of high wattage - just one - as it tends not to flatten the subject.

Sorry, no link! I have spoken to them and requested a manual, they said it should be with me in 5-10 working days. He asked if I had a computer and why not use the pdf file. I said I wasn't prepared to print off a shedload of pages when I have just paid over 350 on camera when my 100 S5600 came with one! He said fair enough and would post it free of charge!

Kenzie....as you have quoted costs in sterling, can I assume the contact number for the manual is in the UK?

Yeah, the number is Fuji UK although I guess ringing the stateside version would yield the same result maybe? By the way, I read on the My Finepix forum that Fuji global decided not to ship the manual although Fuji UK decided to print a batch off it's own back.

Hey guys, I got a nice paper copy of the HS10 manual through from Fuji today, so if you are in the UK and want one it won't hurt to ring them.

Hi Kenzie

I've ordered mine too. Is it a full blown manual or quick start booklet?

Thank you! So probably MF would be best..
