Newbie here. I'm using FX9. Now testing out macro shots. I'm puzzled. Is the FX9 not capable of macro shots or I don't know how to do it or there is a fault with my camera?
I attached 3 photos here, respectively, taken at no zoom, 2x zoom and 3x zoom. The subject is a coin placed on the windowsill. The pictures are taken with the cam mounted on a mini tripod and the camera is staring down on the coin. No flash used as there is sufficient light from outside the window. The camera lens is about 10cm from the coin.
Without zoom, the picture is pretty clear. But once I zoom in 2x and 3x, the problem I face is the camera cannot focus. When I try to depress the shutter button to focus, cam just cannot stabilise on a clear focus. At 2x zoom, there was still momentarily clear focus as I press the shutter button but only momentarily. I cannot stabilise the focused image. Tripod is very firm, no movement.
I am very worried. If this is a limitation of the camera, that's fine. But if the camera is capable of taking good macros, then either I don't know how to do it, in which case I want to learn or if there is a fault with my cam, which I worry, then I have to send for service.
Can kind seniors please enlighten me and put me out of my misery. Appreciate very much.
