lem12: Great development, 1 inch sensor! Very interested in all-in-one camera. I own a camera by other maker with larger sensor, but found out that Macro function disables exposure adjustment and becomes entirely Auto. Just checked this camera on its site and couldn't find the answer I was looking for.
Does Creative functions on this camera like Macro, etc. enables Auto control of exposure and other...?
Thanks!

@lem12,
//Does Creative functions on this camera like Macro, etc. enables Auto control of exposure and other...? //
There is a quick Macro focus mode in the dial. That disables exposure controls and enables auto mode. There is a small Focus Lever in the side of the lens, that still keeps all user settings while setting the macro focus mode. This is what you want to use. But you should remember to set it back to normal AF once done.

About your comment 1 inch sensor, it is more than couple of years old and by no means great development. Absolutely none.

I think Sony wins this time.

jaykumarr: congrats.
But I don't understand what happened. There is a bird with severed head, there is falcon and what else is there? how many birds involved here? Is a falcon attacking another falcon that was eating a bird?

thanks for detail

razadaz: These are clearly aimed at the low end of the market (the rrp is not the street price). Nikon have done more than any other camera manufacturer to try and keep everyone happy. Their DX lenses can be used on their FX bodies and vice versa. Even their older lenses can be used with (depending on the camera body) varying degrees of functionality on their newer cameras. Despite their efforts, it would seem that they prove that whatever you do you simply can't please everyone.

@Xentinus,
four families - I mean D3100.., D5100.., D70..,D300.. And they are not fully compatible. While Nikon cameras have outstanding AF capabilities, they suppress the some capabilities in low end.

@Xentius, my comment was not reply to yours, but the original posters. I am with you.

What Nikon did is to cover the market by providing lens with AF motor and lens without that. And four!! families of Crop sensor SLRs some are not even compatible with their some of their DX lenses. Canon has much better compatibility among their DSLRs and lenses, they have only 3 line ups for DSLR crop sensors.

Perhaps AF tracking test subject in bicycle keeps eyes half closed and in shadow, so the algorithm suffered to recognize since the pattern matching failed.
