Did you know: The difference between a close Mode and Macro lens ?

The Automatic close up mode means trying to capture a subject from a close distance. Some such subjects can include flowers, bugs or butterflies and any other miscellaneous small objects. It is highly recommended to use a tripod while using the close up mode to reduce shakes and blurs.

Macro Photography means that the size of the subject on the negative is greater than life size. A Macro lens allows you to magnify a small subject in a certain ratio like 1:1 or 1:4. This means that a Macro lens magnifies the subject size on the film plane (image sensor plane) to the actual subject size.
For macro photography, one needs to invest in the specific macro lenses as it cannot achieve the same result with the close-up mode on the mode dial.

    So, do u mean that the ‘flower’ symbol on Dial is not a macro setting? and for Macro we need a macro lense?
