Thread: Taking shots from a close distance

  1. #1

    Default Taking shots from a close distance

    cannot get the camera in focus when my subject is pretty close. I'm a newbie, so I'll just tell you what it says on the lens:

    AUTO - CHINON - ZOOM - MC - MACRO - 35~80mm - 1:3.5~4.9

    I could of course just take it from a father distance, then digitally crop it...but I wanna move away from digital, and there may be instances where I have no choice but to take the shot close up.
    For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible

    Check the min focusing distance of your lens.

    U need a macro lens for close-ups. Perhaps your macro lens isnt doing a high enough magnification.

    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    a dedicated macro lens is usually a prime lens..zoom lens are not designed as true macro lens. e.g my 24-70 has a "macro" range, but it's not true macro
