Introduction: How to Use the Macro Mode on Your Camera

For far too long instructables has been suffering from people who continuously take blurry out of focus pictures. Well I aim to put an end to this. In this instructable I will show you how to use the macro setting on cameras from most manufacturers.

Step 1: The Difference

All cameras are preset to take distence pictures, but most also allow you to take close-up shots. This is the difference. These pictures were taken with the same camera at the same distance with the same zoom. The first one was without macro and the second one is with macro.

Step 2: Finding the Function V1.0 : Easy

All have this function if yours doesn't then your camera is a POS and you are SOL.
To find this function "its usually on the arrow pad" look for a flower when hit the flower should appear on screen. To turn it off hit it again.

Step 3: Finding the Function V1.1 : Medium

This one is a little bit harder you might have to go into the menu to activate macro mode.

Step 4: Finding the Function V1.2 : SOL

This is the cheapest camera i could find it doesn't have macro mode so you are SOL.

Step 5: Useage

To use macro mode you need a tripod. watch this video where i explain.

Step 6: Final Thoughts

Use these methods or be hated by the instructables comunity for bad pictures.
