Hmm PoPok, i think apart from hand shake, the focus is slightly off. If you look carefully, the protrusion of the eye further from the lens seems to be in focus. Still a nice shot nonetheless

Ocellatus, it means that the shutterspeed is too low. Try using a tripod or put the camera on a stable structure, it would help alot. Also, squeeze the shutter, don't press down suddenly. Although this may not seem really important, in macro, the camera movements are amplified so it's best to do so yep.

The shots of my betta fry and taken in super macro mode with my lens zoomed in all the way, so I'm not sure if that statement really holds. Pardon my ignorance if its true! Cheers

ok pals...just experimented with my DC. Pic shows the eye of a common pleco. Wanted to experiment somemore but it knew my intention, so quickly swam away.

I rested my camera on the tank's wall so it was pretty easy. No movement although the stupid 'your-camera-is-shaking' logo is there.

The first pic was taken with 0 exposure and with shutter speed of 200

The 2nd pic was taken with 0 exposure and with shutter speed of 50

I cant see any difference, except maybe the 2nd pic (shutter speed of 50) is abit clearer and sharper...

Whats the diff in the shutter speed? And whats exposure for?
