    Fixed for ya. I have a basic DSLR, and it could easily take pictures like that, if it had a Macro lens like that, which I don't.

    So it's the lens that makes pictures like this not the camera?


    I have a Cannon PowerShot G5.

    It takes good pictures, no where near as detailed and this guys though.

    You seem to know your stuff, any lens you suggest that could make this camera take high detail pictures?

    I was asking if you had a better lens it would take better picture nublet. So don't nugget me, I don't know anything about cameras which is why I asked such a question.

    A lens does a part of the job. Doesn't make anything better or worse.
    You can't change a lens on a compact camera...

    To be honest, because I don't have a macro lens for my DSLR, I took better macro pictures with my old Samsung L80. However you will always get better photos with a DSLR. For the 'macro' ones I take now, I am actually about a metre away, using my zoom lens. The problem is, is that most lenses can't focus so close to the lens, whereas macro lenses cannot focus on far away things.

    Also, never use digital zoom to get better pictures. If you reach limits its time for a new camera. Which is what I did

    It was never twice the money haha! Still, you never knew in the first place you were going to be able to seel them. Since the krash has blocked sales between players (so you were lucky)

    MSN bores me these days. I'm going on TDU now anyway Piccie mode here I come.
