quite liked a blue orchid in Tesco, so bought one, tried to get the best macro pics of it but think I need a tripod and set it on timer to go off

It's quite good del, but not 'ultra' sharp, is it?

I don't know the answer though. It might be one for a slow shutter speed (on a tripod) as it's indoors, as the light isn't as good.

I used to set my last camera on best quality and when zooming in I used to click on the button that looked like a flower of all things I sometimes had to hit it twice for it to focus, I never used the macro

Have been reading a lot just lately on video cameras on expert sites and most of guys who are into top of the range video cameras have been slating Panasonic for being poor in poor light. This seems to follow through on the TZ cameras, as today in better light, this hand held macro pic is a lot sharper than the others

It's a setting on the camera for taking close up pictures 4th, things likes butterflies and insects etc

getting your lens about 3 inches away from the object

Yep you got it their Del much better. These cameras are supposed to be point and shoot but they are not for stuff like this. Ive got lots of reading up on my camera before I get anyway with it. Got the camera case anyway so now its back in the car when Im out BUT not in the door card this time lol

yes lots of light and a tripod would get there Daryn but did it handheld, so not perfect.

The camera is not good in bad/low light for closes ups, it obviously hunts for a focus
