Hit your menu button. go down to setup. in the setup menu there is a tab for "Conversion Lens". make sure it is not set to "Close Up". i have mine set to off because i am not using any conversion lens.

Why is macro invalid in sony w dsc-220?


You mean you can't turn the macro mode on? Most likely there are some settings set that won't let you turn macro on. Do an initialization (reset) from the SETUP menu.

It keeps saying my sony cyber-shot DSC-H3 macro is invalid. what do i need to do to get it working again?


Press the "Home" button, go to "Settings" (last menu item at right), then "Main Settings", and use the "Initialize" button.

And also;
Macro is not available in landscape mode, twilight mode or fireworks mode, if you try to use macro in any of those modes it will say invalid macro.

How do you take macro photos


Your lens is the limiting factor to take macro photos, the kit lens provided with you camera won't focus very closely, nor it will have decent magnification. There are special purpose macro lenses which can stretch up to and over $1000 for a decent quality one. Tamron's 90mm f2.8 is probably the best value one.

A tripod will be of benefit too, as it slows down the process, so you think about your composition, use manual focus and a small aperture for better depth of focus (field).
