1m FOCUS

Hi guys,


I have noticed that if I try to get sharp images of an object being just about 1m from the camera it can be really difficult.
I tried it also by having the "MACRO" button set to "ON" position.

1. Is it so that objects by/ under 1m are by default getting out of focus with EX1 or it's just my camera not doing something alright?

2. What is your way of working with the focus in different situations?
What is the best way with the EX1 to make sure that it's in focus?

Appreciate your advises,

Atti

1 m focus

Hi Atti
Sounds like you focussing at the telephoto end of the zoom. If you go to wide you can focus to 50 mm

Thanks Peter,
Soon when the weather turns here, I'd like to get shots of bugs, ants, so I'll test it.
