Re: Is Macro available on C3 only in automatic modes?

Thank you Lim for your good advice. I obviously need a new, macro, lens as the Sony 18-55 kit zoom seems to allow for macro shooting only in SCN or iA mode: in both of which the camera selects both the aperture and shutter speed. I stand, of course, to be corrected by other NEX C3 users.

You don't need to be in macro mode to shoot near macros. I always shoot in either A mode or M mode.

If you need to be able to focus at closer than MFD, you can add a Canon 550D close up focusing lens on most NEX lenses with good results. I use one of those quite often for near macro shooting with great results on NEX.
