I have picked up a camera that takes impressive close-ups. I actually use that feature quite abit now due to some of my assistance in showing some details involved in my main accutron forum. Having clear pics of tiny little parts or dates codes really help. I still haven't figured out the everyday art of photography but at least my camera has made one some aspect of the hobby easier.
Normal pic of my Speedaster with old camera. Not a bad pic but that was as close as I could get to it without blur.
Now two pics of the Speedmaster with new camera. I can get so close that the camera actually touches the object with clarity. Its not necessary to do that but its makes my point of clarity at close range.
