Ok, I did the comparisons today. I'll let you guys decide which is better. Enjoy.

First, the 2x digi zoom flash macro:



And here's the super macro, no flash:




Hope this helps.

I like the super macro better, but you have to really be careful using the digital zoom. It's not really a zoom, just a magnifyer. The more you advance into it, the more picture quality you are going to lose.

Yeah. I don't really like it for doing flower macros. Mostly for indoor macros or macros that need a flaqsh and I need to be close.

Yeah, but digital zoom on the P880 is real good. IMO. 1.4x is great. 2x is less great, but usable for 640x480 size for the web. :-)
