Diopter is for your eye only and does not effect the focus of the camera. By using the 1/2 down method, by pressing the photo taking button half way down, you can set the cameras focus. on some cameras this is shown where it will focus by a red square. If you change the diopter this is like adding by focal lenses for reading a book. and setting the distance your particular eye needs for eye relief. On binoculars this is done with screwing the eyepiece closer or farther away from the other lens. check out online http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyeglass_prescription this will give you more details of what a diopter is or does. Always know what setting your shooting at as well. for instance if you are on a flower setting or Macro then this is for up close work. But up close doesn't mean too close. Most cameras on Macro need to be 6 inches to 12 inches away. But if you are say 24 inches away it won't focus right so don't try to zoom in, use your optical instead of digital and simply move closer or change the settings on the camera to a different setting or it may be blurry.
The 55-200mm lens does not focus closer than 1.1 meters (3.6 feet). If the subject is too close, then the autofocus tries and fails to focus or keeps trying (and squeaking). Either way, you won't be able to take a picture. In manual focus, you can take a picture but it will be out of focus and blurry.
Every lens has a minimum focus distance, closer than which it will not focus. Some lenses focus closer than others. It's a matter of design; making lenses focus closer makes them larger, heavier, and more expensive.
If you want to take close-ups, you have several options. You can buy close-up adapters that fit onto the front of a lens. You can buy a special close-up lens ("macro" or "micro" lens). You can buy extension tubes to fit between the camera and a lens.
There are several battery saving techniques that can be addressed the first being using the viewfinder and limiting the use of the LCD as much as possible. Limit the use of the internal flash. I often switch to manual focus during cold weather to save on battery power. On my Fuji FinePix camera the rather odd looking in focus indicator provides a accurate guide for correct focus. It might take a little getting use too as it works like a bar graph with the center being optimum focus and you turn the lens barrel until the graph comes to meet the center line. Took a little before I understood what it was doing. What didn't take long was for me to see the power savings Manual had over the auto focus. Also there is a power off mode that can be set for 2 minute auto off, here is a diagram to show you were it is.
In order to get close to the subject, you need to be able to focus close. If you're using one of the kit lenses, you won't be able to get much closer than a foot or two.
In order of decreasing cost:
Special macro lenses are designed to focus closer, as close as a couple of inches, but they cost more.
Extension tubes fit between the camera and other lenses, allowing the lens to focus closer.
Close-up adapters fit in front of the lens, also allowing closer focus.
One major consideration with any type of close-up photography is lighting. Having the camera close to the subject tends to block out light. Two possible ways around this are: a tripod or other support, and an additional light source such as an external flash unit.
Use spot metering & focus when taking pictures of an object.
Set your camera to highest Megapixel setting, Only use max. optical zoom on the subject (do not use digital zoom) .U dont need to get close to object as you can edit/zoom/crop the picture using any photo software program afterwards .
if your wanting to do macro photography (close up) on the dial on the back, click the left button on the circle and a little flower should pop up on the screen saying "Macro, close up shots" this is for pictures that are closer up then regular and U want them in focus. it takes a few times to get it focused a few times but when it is focused properly, the square in the middle of the screen should be red. if you want really close up, click the button another time and the flower should come up again and it should say "macro close up shots up to 2cm (0.8in). once again once its focused properly the square will be red. you will have to practice because it takes time to learn where its proper focusing points are but i'm sure you will get the hang of it.
