Macro capability of sony cybershot?


Recommended Posts

I want to post pictures of my minis here, but I can't find the macro setting on my digital camera. It's a sony Cybershot 3.2 megapixel.

 

Needless to say, being a guy, I did not look in the user manual (I'm pretty sure I still have it though...), so if somebody uses that type of camera, could you point me how to select that mode?

 

Is it possible that this fairly recent camera woudl not have macro capabilities at all?

 

Thanks!

Yes. Not all cameras, even the most recent productions, have macro capability. I advise (as a woman) to read the manual. Some cameras even have different versions of the same camera, and thus some will have features that another that is exactly the same in appearance, manufacturer, and use, do not.

 

Read the manual.  :p

Ah man... I knew someone would say that...

 

That's what I will do, but I was dying to know now, and since I'm at work (sshhh...don't tell...), I don't have the manual handy...

 

I'll check tonight.

 

Thanks!

Check Sony's website for either capabilities, and/or a pdf copy of the manual. :)

 

If it does have macro, I believe the universal macro digital symbol is a tulip flower. Poke through your menus, you may find it. It'll be on the same toggle command as the mountain, if you remember seeing that icon.

Girls are always right.

 

After checking the manual, my camera DOES have macro. The symbol for it IS a tulip flower. And it's on the navigation button, which gets intensive use every time I USE the camera...

 

Thanks for the help! Expect some pictures soon!

Hey, by the way, I've got the identical camera.  So just another piece of advice, when using the Macro feature make sure to use the center focus function as well.  I've also had a lot of luck increasing the sharpness to max.  Oh, and lastly, it will look like you're not too close to the piece when you snap the photo but don't worry.  Take the picture on the highest resolution setting and when you crop it in your image program (ie; photoshop or something like it) it will zoom and look great.  If you would like any further assistance PM me or head to my website (below) and email me.  I'd be glad to help!  :cool:
