One of the best features to use in a point-and-shoot camera is it's Digital Macro - I can get so much from it. Sometimes I feel so much limited with my digital camera but thanks to this function I am able to satisfy some of my artistic preferences.
As I was saying, this feature can make an ordinary photo look so much more professional and deep. It's actually one of my most favorite functions. Take a look at the photos I've taken using this technique.
Try it and let me know how it works for you! :)
