I would like to ask you about the picture of your folks, did you use the optical with the digital zoom in that pic. ?
Ok, that is the one with the yellow crane and the red star of my folks room.

I used optical zoom with a little bit of cropping. I like to do that instead of the in-camera digital zooming. I feel it is a little sharper that way, but I could be wrong.

Finally, success in attaching images. Here's one shot from the 12th floor of the hotel I stayed in last week. Date setting with error.

I am still very confused with the CROPPING issue!

Do you crop the images by putting them on your PC?

Or do you just set the CROP option of Digital Zoom setting in the camera itself?

How does cropping increase sharpness?

And what is the relation of digital zoom and cropping?

Jack....Please Help me out again.

I crop when I have the photo in PhotoShop. But I don't crop much, because you will loss some sharpness. I try to get that back by using unsharp mask in photoshop.

If you use digital zoom, your stuck with that image. However, if you wait and crop in Photoshop, you still have the original image if you don't like what you cropped. Big difference and why I never use digital zooming in any camera.

Default Macro

Hey,

I just got the P90 (1 day now)

I am a fan of taking Macro shots...however i seem to find it difficult on this camera...is there a special setting in the Aperture mode, i have tried using the scene > Close Up mode as well...but it doesnt come out as well...

http://picasaweb.google.com/devavrat...38009757872786
(as u can see the leaves have come more clear than the petals of the flower (slightly out of focus)


can anyone help with determining settings...(atleast in general for lining up good macros)

I am amateur / newbie photographer :P

Thank You

I like to use the spot meter when using macro.
Sometimes using the zoom macro works best where you stand back and zoom in using spot meter.
