Default Aiptek GVS Macro Photo

While in the park today and filming the kids etc. I took this macro photo of a flower with a bee on the surface. Click on photo for full size version. You will notice that the full size photo is much nosier than a regular camera but shows what can be done in the macro mode.

A few inches. The problem with zoom is that you can't keep the camera still easily when holding it by hand. Also I find the camera seems to have trouble getting a focus in certain situations at full zoom.

I have to confess I didn't measure it so it may have been further away than I thought but I did use the macro mode.
