    Nope. Cannot afford it. The technical spec sheet confirms 1cm macro.

    But if you were not confining choice to Canon compacts, then this thread can be moved elsewhere.

    Got to be a Pentax Q with K-mount adapter + macro lens.
    5.5x 'magnification'

    Cropped only slightly for composition 8x10 format








    Unlike just a small sensor pns with close up adapter, the Q+macro lens retains near and infinity focusing.

    you need real steady hands n is not easy to be 1cm away from the subject (if it is insect, spider...)

    my closest encounter is with a frog found in one of my trail walk.

    i am very happy with the results from G15 n much lighter equipment ..

    This is the pic of the frog took at very close distance without flashlite but forgotten to change WB therefore it is yellowish in colour. Taken direct with the orignal equipment no additional set up to it.
