Hi there,

my S9500 macro isn't good, i mean even the super-macro. i thought if i took a shot of a flower or a butterfly then the details will be shown clearly. but it usually turns out un clear orblurry. *look at the flower shot below*

do i have to change the settings in it to make it better, or do i have to use a tripod ?

and i would also like to get a new lense for my cam. i need it for MACROonly and for very very close-up shots but not a veryexpensive one, which one would you recommend me to get ??



thanks alot

Well, it worked or me.

How close was the lens from the flower?

I think you have to experimentsome more, until you get a good result. Don't write it off just yet. It takes time to get used to it.

In that lighting, I'd suggest a tripod, unless you want to increase ISO speed higher than ISO 400 (where it was shot at).

Your shutter speed was only 1/20 second for that photo.

I love taking Macro shots but I've always found it quite tricky with all my cameras and the S9500 is no exception. It's certainly recommended to use a tripod but I guess this isn't always possible. The manual suggests changing the focus to Multi - I haven't tried this yet but it's worth a go if you are experiencing problems. The S9500 is certainly capable of very high quality shots, I've seen them posted elsewhere. I've had some success and here are a few thatI took (both hand held). I'll leave you to decide whether you think they are good or not.

Most definitely you should use a tripod whenever you can, it gives you more freedom composing a static shot and eliminates a camera shake.

This was taken with a camera mounted on a tripod with a small table lamp for lighting:

As for lenses you can get a set of close-up lenses, just go for multi-coated ones (Hoya or similar), for better quality go for Raynox DCR-250. For links and samples look here:

I wonder if you just need to keep working at it. The image I am sharing near once taken with my 9000. I like it. But every image isn't a winner. I took over 50 macro shots, and found 8 that were pretty good. I'm not the best at macro photography, but I'm trying to improve. My first several attempts were complete disasters. But now I'm getting at least a few that are sort of what I want.
