    I always took the pics from as close as possible that they would focus, then zoom in as far as possible without it getting blurry. I'd take the pic and pics always turn out HUGE on your computer, you can just cut out the plant and it usually looks pretty good.

    Was I too close to the sundew? yes. The lens was almost touching the plants. I was trying to find the limits on the camera. Yes it was in macro mode. This camera has a feature that tells me if the image is in focus or not in focus. Most of the shots were taken after the camera indicated that it was in focus. The pics I posted are also severely cropped. I zoomed way in, and cut out everything but the plant.

    I'm not a photographer, so I haven't started playing with the shutter speeds and all that. I really have very little understanding on those features.

    I can resize the remaining pics I have and let you guys tell me what you think.

    Sometimes if you take what you cropped and compact the picture a bit, it looks better.


    See? Looks a little better.

    Also I'd move the camera away a bit and use zoom.

    Hehe, I hate it when you take the pic while the camera says you're in focus, but then when you take the pic it goes back out of focus lol

    Are you supposed to take macro pics with the lens like RIGHT next to the plants? I never did... I always zoomed in a bit and did the rest on the computer.

    I tried to move the camera away and use the 12X zoom and even using a little zoom would throw it out of focus.

    Lets put yours and mine side by side so we can see the improvements.

    ......actually it does not look that different at all. xD

    This failed tip brought to you by: Me! *thumbs up*


    Edit: They are cropped at the same spot, I just said that sometimes if you make it smaller, it makes it look better cuz some of the bad details become slightly less visible... it failed in this example. >_>
