|Home >> Using Macro Mode to Take Photos of Your Pets|
All cameras have a limited range of focus. When you get too close to a subject, the camera may not be able to focus where you want. Try using the macro mode (). Camera models that have a normal minimum focal distance of 50 cm allow you to get as close as 20 cm from the subject in macro mode. Some models will let you get as close as a few centimeters. Before taking the picture, press the shutter button halfway and check that the AF confirmation mark lights up on the monitor. If you want to get even closer, use the super macro mode. Just remember that in super macro mode the position of the zoom is fixed and cannot be changed.
Using the Macro Mode to Get Closer Pictures
Maybe you have tried to take pictures of a cat only to find out that the focus is not on its face but somewhere in the background. The reason is because you were closer than the minimum distance needed for the focus. By using the macro mode when taking a picture, you can get closer to the subject.
