To focus at close distances, press the selector up ([MACRO]) to choose a macro mode from the options listed below.
At default settings, macro mode selection is assigned to the up button on the selector (function button 2). For information on choosing the roles assigned to the function buttons, see “The Function Buttons”.
Macro mode can also be selected using the [AUTOFOCUS SETTING] option in the shooting menu.
The following restrictions apply in super macro mode: the lens must be zoomed out until the zoom bar turns white and the flash can not be used.
Use of a tripod is recommended to prevent blur caused by camera shake.
The shadow cast by the lens may appear in photos taken with the flash at very short ranges. Zoom out slightly or increase the distance to the subject.
