    He's having problems opening PDFs on his computer.

    Manual says to set focal length to telephoto for the close-up lens.

    I was able to read that part in the manual BE hooked me up with. Now just figuring out WHERE and HOW to do that. Easier said than done..

    Use the zoom lever and set to maximum zoom without digital zoom. The close-up lens should be attached to the front of the camera lens with a screw-on adapter.

    That's what I did for those pics. But it sounds like Butch is talking about a setting on the camera especially for each lens. I think..

    i think C1 and C2 are custom settings 1 and 2 can modify to work for each of the lenses and just switch to that set for the given lens. individual tweaking for macro under daylight or indoor lighting and have them preset to one of those 2......

    Correct! C1 and C2 are indeed custom 1 and custom 2.

    From what I can tell from the manual your camera doesn't have any of those lens settings in the menu.

    Shooting macro pictures on a non-DSLR camera without a tripod will drive you nuts. The lag time on the LCD display makes it difficult to impossible to set your focus point. You also need smaller aperture settings for more depth of field which means slower shutter speeds and more blur from camera movement.
