Well, hey, get close! But not too close. You will focus at about a foot (12") from the subject. Practice on coins and jewelry in bright light. Start at around 6x zoom. At higher zooms you will optimize focus by locking focus with a shutter half-press and then move the camera ever so slightly closer or further before completing the shutter release. Enjoy andpost some pics.

I am looking forward to your pics Ken. And I have been in contact with that shop you told me about in the Great White North (good price on the FZ30!)

Sorry....I'm slow off the mark. Had brillaint sunshine today and spent my photo time trying for that elusive duck takeoff shot. Lots of chances with geese, too slow on the draw for a beautiful ringnecked pheasant, and none of my mallards were there today. Tomorrow, the close ups shall garner my attention. Glad you found the Camera store people helpful...btw, best regards,

Well, alright. Action. First, normal macro. I must point out this is just a trial run, for I can not believe the FZ 30 is not capable of a better macro than this...

Tack sharp and good technique now lets see something interesting. I think the 4T is a better macro choice because of the images quality. It is easier to work with and can withstand severe cropping. The more light on the subject the better.
