    icon_lol.gif Joy, swot up the manual!

    I don't know that model, but usually on the little round wheel (with Auto, M, S, P, etc) there are also tiny icons. The small flower icon is the macro setting.

    I'm not sure whether your model can take other lenses, or whether it has a fixed lens. If it can be fitted with other lenses a macro lens is always better than the flower icon. (I don't have one ... they're very pricey).

    Do try just using Auto -- sometimes it works almost as well as the (flower) macro setting, for food photos.

    You'll have to experiment a little! icon_wink.gif

    Hi Joy,

    I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 and have only used the auto food setting when taking food photos.

    Sorry everyone I have not had ANY notification of this thread, just happened to look through my fav topics… sigh.. will go and swat up the manual, but will have to be on line - the manual that you get with the camera just tells you what all the buttons are lol

    Oh Joy, I know -- that's so annoying. One wants a printed manual in plain English, also not in Japanese English! icon_wink.gif

    Last night "our" genets came early to look for meat scraps, but it was pitch dark. I battled with my camera and got no shots.

    Tried the so-called Nikon "manual" today -- to find I have to play the CD which came with the camera, if I wanted to REALLY know how to change settings. icon_evil.gif Drats.
