Better closeup at wide angle than zoom (tele)
6 months ago

Hello,

I use a Canon Powershot G10 and want to know the technical reason why I can get better close up shots (i.e. stuff I want to sell in Ebay) using the the max wide angle setting as opposed to using the zoom (tele) setting.

I am also aware of the Macro mode and the results seem similar to my max wide angle close up shots; what is the technical difference between the two?

Thank you in advance for any help.
