Finally, I'm getting my camera today. :)
12.1MP, 6x optical zoom, 1cm macro-range. :roll:

To use your macro facility well, make sure you have a tripod or stable service in which to put the camera on.

A decent amount of lighting and using the 2second timer to reduce shake would also be recommended :)

Thanks for the advice Joel, it's got an optical image stabiliser, will see if a tripod is still necessary. :)

Sadly that means nothing in the macro world lol, though will improve any 'normal' shots you will be taking.

I'm a total noobie, as you have noticed. Can you imagine, this is my very first camera, ever!

Fred, you're a man after my own heart. I have a fair sized collection of vintage cameras too. I started collecting them about 25 years ago. Unfortunately mine have been stuck in a box in the loft for years because we've got nowhere to display them.

I must get the down and remind myself how much I love them! :oops:

Very cool collection, by the way!!
