• The focus range becomes the same as 
macro mode. [5 cm (0.16 feet) (Wide)/
30 cm (0.98 feet) (Tele) to 
¶]
• When the flash is activated, the ISO 
sensitivity is automatically increased to a 
maximum of [ISO640]. (When the highest 
ISO sensitivity is set to a setting other 
than [ISO400].)
• Refer to P37 for information about the 
available flash range .
• Digital zoom cannot be used.
• Depending on the brightness and how fast 
the subject is moving, jitter may not be 
avoided.
• The camera may not be able to detect the 
movement of the subject in the following 
cases.
– When the moving subject is small
– When the moving subject is at the edge 
of the screen
– When the subject starts moving the 
instant the shutter button is pressed fully
• To avoid picture noise, we recommend 
decreasing [ISO LIMIT] or setting 
[COL.MODE] to [NATURAL]. (P64)
Taking Close-up 
Pictures 
This mode allows you to take close-up 
pictures of a subject, e.g. when taking 
pictures of flowers. You can take pictures of 
a subject as close as 5 cm (0.16 feet) from 
the lens by rotating the zoom lever upmost 
to Wide (1
k).
∫ Focus range
• We recommend using a tripod and the 
self-timer (P39) in macro mode.
• When a subject is close to the camera, the 
effective focus range (depth of field) is 
significantly narrowed. Therefore, if the 
distance between the camera and the 
subject is changed after focusing on the 
subject, it may become difficult to focus on 
it again.
• If the distance between the camera and 
the subject is beyond the focus range of 
the camera, the picture may not be 
properly focused even if the focus 
indication lights.
• Macro mode gives priority to a subject 
close to the camera. Therefore, if the 
distance between the camera and the 
subject is more than 50 cm (1.64 feet) it 
takes longer to focus on it in macro mode 
than normal picture mode [
].
