Taking Close-up Pictures 

This mode allows you to take close-up pictures of a subject, e.g. when taking pictures of 
flowers. You can take pictures of a subject as close as 5 cm (0.17 feet) from the lens by 
rotating the zoom lever  to fully wide position (1

k).

∫ Focus range
¢ The focus range changes in steps.

Note

• We recommend using a tripod and the self-timer.
• We recommend setting the flash to [Œ] when you take pictures at close range.
• If the distance between the camera and the subject is beyond the focus range of the camera, 

the picture may not be properly focused even if the focus indication lights.

• When a subject is close to the camera, the effective focus range is significantly narrowed. 

Therefore, if the distance between the camera and the subject is changed after focusing on the 
subject, it may become difficult to focus on it again.

• Macro mode gives priority to a subject close to the camera. Therefore, if the distance between 

the camera and the subject is more than 1.0 m (3.28 feet) it takes longer to focus on it in macro 
mode than Program AE mode.

• When you take pictures at close range, the resolution of the periphery of the picture may 

decrease slightly. This is not a malfunction.
