I recently got a new camera, a Canon Powershot A590IS, from Amazon.com. It has a "macro" setting which is great for close-ups. I probably could have gotten closer but am still getting used to the camera. This flower was on a cactus in our back yard. I like the clarity! The camera also has settings for portrait, pets & people (action shots), and more, even a 10 second video! Good thing it came this week as my old Kodak is really acting up after being dropped.
