I'm not even a sub-amateur. I only know how to power on/off, turn of the flash, switch to "macro" option & download photos... The other nobs and switches are some kind of weird voodoo magic to me.Since a portion of us are sub-amateur photographers (personally, I'm hyposub-amateur )...that's about as macro as it gets.
You're too right, and this isn't a lame-o photography forum, its all about BIKES! I was in an ornery mood last nightBTW, is talking about what makes a Macro shot comparable to talking about what constitutes a ratrod bike?
