SOURCE: S70 Macro Focus Problem?

The macro is good at 4cm at wide angle, 8inches at full telephoto(different distances for any focal length in between). I read that someplace in the manual, I believe.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot S2 IS Super Macro mode

Make sure your camera isn't zoomed in (full telephoto) The camera can't handle both full zoom AND super macro. Don't forget super macro goes from Zero to 20cm from the lens. Zoom completely out and you should be able to see something within that range. The biggest complaint I've heard about the S2 IS is if you take closeups of bugs the chances of the bug crawling onto your lens is pretty good.:-) Be very carefull of blocking light with the lens at extreme closeup too. Although the flash squelches well to allow for closeups it can leave a nasty shadow. If you're really serious about macro you'll find a ring flash would come in handy. BMW

I think you should use the manual focus for best results. the autofocus might not provide the best results at most times.

Focusing a mamiya k/l lens.how do i use the floating element ring? thank's


Step A. Set the floating element ring to its' infinity position (if you are using extension tubes, this will vary and you must set according to the tubes).
Step B. Focus the camera on your subject.
Step C. Look at the bellows scale on the camera body (it will generally range from 0-40) Important: Don't read the scale akin to the lens you are using. This will make perfect sense, when you examine the bellows. Mentally record this number.
Step D. Adjust the floating element ring to the recorded number.
Step E. Leave the ring on this new setting and re-focus the camera on your subject.
Step F. Make sure the dark slide is removed and capture your photograph. :)

ROKINON AUTO ZOOM Macro--- HELP to enable macro


Some of the Rokinon (and other ) zoom lenses could only go into MACRO at certain focal lengths- the lens you have "zooms" from 80 to 200 focal length,but is that done by "sliding" a ring forward and back on the lens, or by twisting a different ring that the one that focuses?

How to click close macro photos with Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG APO Macro Lens?


This lens is not a true macro lens. It provides a magnification of 1:2 only, while true macro lenses provide 1:1 (life-size)magnification. So you won't be able to do very close macros with this lens. This lens has a Macro switch to enable you to switch to the Macro or normal mode.

How to use macro with this lens?


http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=216&modelid=10511
The lens does NOT have a macro feature - the closet focus is 0.35m - 1.15 ft. at the 85mm end
If you want macro a cheap way to do that is to use some extension tubes - these do NOT have glass and often come in a set of three tubes of different thickness - you can achieve better than 1:1 with these tubes

Fungus inside lens


if it's mild then it won't have any appreciable effect on your photographs, so leave it until it's worse. The fungus can be slowed or killed by sunlight or by exposing the lens element to ultra violet light.

If it's really bad then you have to decide whether it's worth a professional strip down and clean. You'd have realistic two choices: to remove the fungus and replace all lubricants and canada balsam lens cement with modern antifungal equivalents but leave the damaged lens coatings as they are or to do the same and also have affected lens groups replaced with new ones or have the old ones re-coated. The first option is expensive, the second option is very expensive.
