Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
I have this camera and connot get the Super Macro mode to work. I repeatedly press the macro button but never get it go in to this mode, it just switches between macro and normal!! Am I doing anything wrong? Bryn
Once you press the macro button you will get Macro mode. Next Keep pressing the macro button for a while ( 3 - 4 seconds), you will get super macro. Enjoy Mrinzo

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
