Re: SX50 macro setting, not working??

Thanks, Vetteran! I will go try that.

 

BTW, I hooked the camera up to the tripod last night and got some incredible pics and videos of the moon! I am really hooked on this camera Smiley Happy

You're welcome. Impressive performance for the money. I've done some Moon shots but did not turn the IS off which may be a good idea. The Moon is a bit too near to full now.

This is one of my first shots at close ups last night, hope it's alright to post the pic here Smiley Happy

Yours is even better, Vetteran!

That upper shot is remarkably detailed, settings? Post processed?

Thank you, Id like to take the credit but it was 95% camera

No post processing

Tripod and remote shutter switch, Program mode and shifted the focus bracket to a good spot. Film speed at 100. It was at max zoom of 200X

Tonight is the Full "Blood Moon" but I dont think it will be clear enough to capture it. I really hope it is. It sounds creepy but it has to do with the bending of the light etc.. Rather than explain it Google it, it is cool !

Sounds fantastic, hope the skies clear enough for a pic or two. We might not see something like it here in the UK but I'm aiming to take photos each night for the next week of the moon just in case.

By all means try but better shots of the Moon are when it's less than full. More shadows.
