It does have a "Macro" mode but its not really macro. More like close up. Based on www.imaging-resource.com's review, the smallest area it can take in a frame is abt 15.8cm x 11.8cm. Now that is really quite limited. It is unable to even cover a dollar note in full frame! So you can basically forget abt taking pictures of small flowers and insects. While A40 shares the same limitation, it allows the addition of close up filter to make up for it. With 330, that IS it.
