    I have a canon S40 4.0mp. How the hell do you take macro shots? I know the little flower icon has to be on the lcd to show it is in macro mode. Now do you put the camera as close to the subject as possible and try to focu? Or do you have to focus on the subject from far away and slowly move the camera closer and closer to the subject? It seems my camera may have some focusing issues. Every macro shot I have taken turns out very blurry.

    This is the best I could do for a macro shot...

    there is an auto focus. it sure doesnt work too well in the macro mode...and manual focus will not focus good enough in macro mode.

    you need to find out what the minimum shooting distance is for your lens
    looks to me like you are shooting too close to your subject for the lens capabilities

    Check the manual for ideal macro distance..seems like u are to close to subject. Also put the zoom at full wide, and make sure to light the subject as best as possible.
