Magnified Close-Up Shooting (Digital Macro)

Use this mode to shoot a subject in the range of 3 to 10 cm (1.2 to 3.9 in.) from the end of the lens (zoom fixed at maximum wide angle). Since this mode trims all but the image center and magnifies it with the digital zoom, you can make a subject appear even larger than in the normal macro mode.

Images can be zoomed to the following powers in the digital macro mode.

Approx. 1.3x, 1.6x, 2.0x, 2.5x, 3.1x, 4.0x
