Great minds think alike, no doubt!CenterShock said:The one thing I do to try to keep from blurry shots is the tripod thing. I usually go the next step and instead of snapping a pic while the cam is on the tripod, I set the timer so that I am not even touching the camera.
jedimario said:About the aperture, that's a setting that's indepentdant from macro. Aperture is how much light is let into the lense in each picture, it's not a different setting. I think the normal aperture range is F2.7 to F8.0. The closer you are to 2.7, the more light you're letting in, and you have a smaller range of focus. Vice versa as you approach 8.0 aperture. This setting applies whether you're using macro or not. Try the Firebird pic again, but make sure the aperture is set closer to 8.
Funny thing is I'm pretty sure you're the one that told me all this a long time ago CS :drunk:
