not true bunny.
just go in macro modus, enable the flash, set a very short exposure time (like 1/1000).....
there you go. every cheap camera can do this

pfffffff ! ok ... example being :

This (which isn't really all that good) is one of the "best" out of any close up water picture I have tried to take. I might get lucky one day with the camera I have but mostly it's never *as* good !

You should know now you have SLR to compare to !

I made that glass shot with a cheap Olympus who apparantely had great macro options.

I'm going to buy a second hand Nikon F80 (film) with a prime lens.

I don't even have a digital camera. Due to some surgeries I can only now use my left hand for finer things, and the cameras are so damn small and made for righties anyway. Although, canon does have a semi-newish one, 5.0 mp thats very nice to handle without screwing up the picture. $300 CAD. I should get it one day.

hm. with SLR cams you do the hard work (zoom, focus) with the left hand and just press the button with the right hand

i cant use my right hand at all though, i cant move the fingers.(nerve damage). but the canon one is a perfect size and workable.

that level in notpron, the folding thing, frkyjenn told me the ways in which to fold it so i only had to do it once. If I had to attempt that a 2nd time I'd so be looking up the cheat. hah.
And it wasn't too shabby looking I must say. Try it with one hand.

You must take a lot of time to type snackbar :o

As an example of how bad I am at taking photoes (shitty camera, auto-focus ruined the idea :( I know, don't tell me ;p), this one from about 7 or 8 months ago..:

edit: smaller version :x

its kinda clishee and done....but having something in the foreground (sharp) and a blured background is always a good effect <3

Not at all actually, faster than many people. We adapt to, and master things pretty fast when we have to.
