while the HX5 has her macro sweet spot at 2.4 x, the HX20 can use a 4 x zoom to keep the same frame but get more distance from the object.

Hi Joe !

I recently bought hx20 and I am a macro fan...

Can you please tell me do you take photos with 18 megapixels or 10mp ? Is it any difference at all?

In what mode do you take macros? Is it always in P mode?

What metering mode and focus do you use?

What about white balance?

What color mode are you using when taking macros?

And in the end are you boosting (sharpness,contrast...) your images in some software and how much?

SORRY if there are too many questions but your macros are amazing so I would like to hear some informations.

THANKS !
