I am new to photography and have just got a new G1. I have been trying to take macro shots of text and pictures from a magazine and books(like scanning using a scanner but using a G1 instead). Can somebody suggest the settings to take macro shots. thanks

Re: macro shots
With macro you want to increase the depth of field as much as possible (to avoid having half the object in-focus, and half out of focus.
This would mean setting the apperture as small as possible, and getting mas much light as you can on the subject.
You can use AV mode, and set it to something suitable (f8.0), and let the camera pick the shutter speed. Open the apperture a little if the shutter speed selected is too slow.
You also want to understand the actual depth of the "in-focus" part of the image. Before going into the "field". get a ruler, and take a macro picture of the ruler from the end of the lense out. Do this for both wide angle, and zoom.
Upload the picture, and see how many inches out is in focus. Where the focus starts, and where it ends.
This way, you always have in your mind an understanding of how far from the lens the focus starts, and where it ends.
