Sorry, not exactly true.

With HX100V you can get as close as 1cm from the subject and get beautiful close-up shots BUT you can not use the zoom nor its magnification power.

You only need a close-up lens to get closer to the subject...
Sorry, it's not exactly true:

You need to attach a close-up lens for decreasing the focal length and being able to use the HX100V Zoom, taking advantage of its great 30X magnification power at shorter distances from the subject than normally allowed by the lens. That it is!.

Truth is a pathless land.
The dead past darkens the ever living present.

Corrections and critics are more than very welcome, desirables.
