    Point and shoot flower macro

    This was taken with the Olympus C7000 point and shoot, it is a crop of the original, which I posted below it...This little wild pansy flower head is less than 1/2 inch long. Was just sharing to show that some nice macro images can be taken without a DSLR

    Lovely picture and I agree entirely. I have a Canon Ixus compact and the macro is very acceptable.

    Love the drops of water on the petals! The colors are also amazing!! I have a point and shoot Nikon L120, I am still trying to master the Macro setting -- any suggestions??

    Thank you, Kathy. Sorry, I am not familiar with the Nikon L120....but if you have the manual, see what it says. When I set my Olympus to macro it has more than one. The first one is for close-ups and the second is for very close. I usually set the exposure to spot and focus to spot focus......and I bought a tiny tripod (only about 7 inches tall) and use that to steady the camera, or lean it on something...Good light, steady camera......and practice.
