How do you take closeups with a digital camera?
I wanted to take closeups of my flowers but my HP PhotoSmart only does zoom - nothing about closeups. Someone suggested the Cannon Powershot w/macro settings. I've been to at least 8 stores that carry cameras and no one knew what I was talking about. All the digitals I looked at came with zoom but none with a micro/macro-setting for closeups. Is there another name for cameras that take closeups? Are special lens needed for digital cameras for clear crisp closeups? What kind of camera are you guys using and how is it set to take close-ups with only zoom lenses? I'd love to get some close ups of my orchids and cactus flowers this spring.
