No probs, nightwolf75 have also done some good explanation on macros.Originally Posted by aaron80
Digital compacts can only give close-ups but not real macros. Some digital compacts can give really good close-ups such as the Canon S2 IS. But of cos due to the tiny CCDs on digital compacts, their depth of field is very great and hence cannot give good background blurring. Dedicated macro lens does the opposite however and also able to control its depth of field extensively.
