What is wrong about this pic? For that matter, what is right, if any? :rbounce:
I guess the subject is relatively flat so the big aperture size did not affect the dof. I did not zoom in on the subject but my camera is very near to the flower. Almost touching if I remember correctly.Originally posted by Falcon
Hmm.. you seems to use a rather big aperture size. I remember hearing from somewhere that you need to use a small aperture size in closeup to so that your subject can be sharper. It works well in your case. Did you zoom in your subject?
Wow u can get to that close? Mine would have lost its focus if I am too near.Originally posted by U-KnOwHo

Thanks for all the kind comments. :gbounce:
I did not provide inaccurate information unless you are talking about the aperture part which is a mistake on my part. :embrass:Originally posted by Mouse
U-KnOwHo, QV-2900UX cannot zoom in so close, it's virtually impossible with such a camera and lens. You will have obtain a very very blur image if you took the shot that close to the subject. What you have here is a more than life-size replication, possibly 3:1. Unless, you zoom-in using the camera built-in zoom capability which is common amongst digital camera. So, please don't provide inaccurate information.
Thanks.Lastly, it is a sharp and well-balanced shot. High in color saturation although flat hence lacking in depth.
Yes. My 995 goes to 2cm at 75mm.Originally posted by Mouse
Y L Lee, are you saying that the lens is only 1 cm away from the subject? And yet it can still remain in focus?
You're thinking in terms of a SLR with a 24mm X 36mm imager. In case you don't know, the extremely small size of the CCD, means that even at 1:4 reproduction ratio, the image will fill frame. A couple of optical tricks here and there will allow the lens to focus real close.
Agreeing, the CCD is small. However, that doesn't compensate for image capturing. All cameras (unless I am already backdated) works based on lens magnification. Most lens (unless really expensive ones) only produces 1:1 reproduction. Normally, extension tubes or bellows or inversing the lens with rings are needed to improve on these reproductions. Otherwise, use close-up filters to reduce the minimum focusing distance. Normal lens minimum focusing distance is 0.4m (40 cm), except for macro lens which are really expensive.
