For some reason my ZR5000 is worse for macro than my ZR850. Meaning more than 4cm.

My LX5 was much better at macro... Closer and more dependable AF

The ZR5000 manual shows this for focus modes.....

ZR5000 manual page 47

Compared to my ZR5100......

ZR5100

That all looks the same to me as it uses the same lens assembly.

So for closest focus (on any model) use P mode, leave lens at the shortest focal length setting, set focus to Manual Focus, press Left on the dial until it hits the left end of the scale on the screen, now move the camera in close to the subject until you see the enlarged view in focus, gently half press and the proper framing is shown, full press to shoot.

Somewhere else I said the enlarged view goes away after 2 seconds, that must apply to some Casio models, on my ZR5100 the enlarged view triggered by manual focus stays until half press.
