Macro photography is close-up form of photography using a digital or SLR camera

On SLRs, special Macro lenses have to be used.For my video, I have used the 'digital' macro inbuilt in the Canon SX10 IS

    I have a question. I have a Cannon Power Shot camara. How do you turn off the flash on this camara? For flash setting it just says red eye, on or off. Thanks so much for any help.

    Viewing various Instructables submitted shows that people have a lot of trouble with making the camera focus on the desired object, rather than part of the background. I hoped you would give some attention to that problem. Fortunately, I have a camera that makes solving that problem fairly easy, if I mind the details.
