 Post subject: HX5 super macro mode
PostPosted: Sun Dec 26, 2010 11:35 am 
did you know that the HX5 has a macro sweet spot?
An area where you can even zoom to get closer?
Well it has one and it is at 2.4 x
With this zoom you can still get as close (5cm) as with the full wide angle but the object is even closer.

Here al a little house fly shot from 5 cm with a forced flash.


and a baby grasshopper shot an a mosquito net.
The holes in the net are 1mm wide, forced flash from 5 cm with 2.4x zoom
