Best "Super" Macro Point And Shoot Cameras

Recommended Posts

My Canon IXUS 30 had a "Super Macro" setting which I used to take a lot of pictures of various insects, such as the Cicada, or it's discarded skin. That was about 14 years ago:

So now I've been looking for a similar function on modern cameras and found - on the internet - the Ricoh WG-6 and WG-30/50/60, but I can't find online any store that sells them.

 

I'm in Phuket, so if anyone can point me to store in Phuket or an online store I would be very grateful.

 

Also, if you have experience of a "Super Macro" camera of another brand, please let me know. It really needs to be "point and shoot" as I don't care to carry huge lenses around while out and about.

Hi Jester,

 

You did ask in the above and since I am a member there and, by the way, have no experience of a "Super Macro" camera of another brand, thinking, the link might/would help you Jester. 

 

Good Luck in your search.

 

Win :wai:

Olympus TG 5 or TG 6 ;

You can find these cameras in Thailand ;

The TG 6 is new and nearly the same as the TG 5 ...
