Default Macro Shots

I've always enjoyed taking close ups. It was a real challenge with my old Nikkormat camera. The digital's make it a bit easier. Here are a few of the first shots with my new Z35. The one thing I miss about my old Canon A610 is the swing out viewer. The flowers are Lenten Roses and they hang straight down. There is really no practical way to use viewer. But the auto focus and settings are so good I just placed the camera as close as I could, press halfway, focus, then take the shot.

Clint-

I also like macros or close-ups a lot. The main issue is getting light to the subject. You really have to take care with that as you are operating very close to your subject, and often even shade the subject.

Here is a Panasonic ZR1 shot where all the factors came together nicely.

That's where I miss the flip out LCD screen.

A flip LCD screen will not mean that much to me. I only use the EVF – The added advantage is that
using the EVF is reported to save an additional 25% of the battery charge

It wasn't a deal breaker for me either, but when you're dealing with a subject that is facing toward the earth and is only inches above ground level a flip screen is nice to have.
