Since Scott made this comment on another thread I made with a macro shot.
I need to prove that nice macros can be made with an inexpensive camera.
I bought my wife a 4 meg Canon A520 a few years ago for Christmas. It cost around $200.00 or $250.00 I can not remember exactly.
So the first shot here is a reflection in the mirror of the camera I used for the following shots. (Look close and you can tell I moved the camera when I took the picture.)
Hope this shows that nice pictures can be taken with less expensive cameras if setting are properly set.
