I know I'm not the only one out there with a cheap ass camera. Mine cost me a total of like $100.00 tax and all. it has no optical zoom and crappy digital zoom.
Don't worry you can still get descent close up's And cheap Too. All I did for these pics was tape the Little 8x magnifying glass out of my radio shack microscope to my camera right over the lens. I know there not the best but its better than nothing. If you do that Plus take big ass pic and crop instead of resize you can to can get some descent close ups and even some Marco's if you keep at it and experiment.
