i use the macro function on the f717 to photograph bugs, butterflies and other critters. i'm really pleased with the results. a friend is ready to sell her minotla and get a sony after comparing pics taken in macro mode.

thanks a mill tammieo.

ive been using a fuji all this time, and the macro pics r great.
it just doesnt take very good action shots, but thats because it is a very old camera. one of the first digi's to come out.
thats why im looking at changing.
but thanks again for the reply.

Default Action ond Macro

Action not recommended. I am fed up of saying so in this forum! You will get some good shots but you will miss a lot.

Macro very good indeed.

All cameras are a compromise in my view.

Quit worrying and buy the Sony.

See my dpotd today !

Action shots are real difficult, I'll agree, but not impossible. I wish i had a nickel for every time I missed a shot. I have a F707 and have used it for about a year and a half. I have gotten alot better and have pulled off some pretty amazing shots.

The 717 is a great camera - if your gonna take actions shots with (F707 or F717) you better know how to anticipate the action. Like in a football or baseball game. Anticipation is key, burst mode can help for a single event (ie: Pitching a baseball, passing in football or corner kicks in soccer).

Learning your camera is key. If you need instant (like we all would like) then go with a SLRD. I have been looking at that option myself, but my Sony has been very very good to me.
