Digital Photography-Rain Drops @ Macro mode -Water Droplets Snapped from Nature after a Rain.Testing Digital Camera of Fuji Finepix S7500 S700, for its Super-Macro Mode Photographic Potentials

Digital Photography in Macro mode. Not just digital macros, but digital super macros, as the special focus mode is named in the digital cam of Fuji Film. The maximum minimum distance that can be focused was seen as 4 cms in the camera manual, but could't get something that closer eventhough i tried. The focus length was shown as 6mm in all photos taken with super macro mode.

The camera showed pretty brilliant close focusing than something without a super macro focus. Anyway can't expect a stunning photo capture form this point and shoot 7MegaPixel camera, like we may get from a digital SLR with macro lenses. Provided if the subject is well lit and have a contrasting colour from the background canvas, you are gonna get awesome clearly focused photographs.

Raindrop in Green Leaf

rain drop photo in macro closeup camera focus,rain droplet in garden plant green leaf,droplet closeupJust some digital snaps of rain water drops i got from garden plants just after a rain. Being always amazed by the tiny wonders of tiny world around us, always gives a try to snap them whenever i can, especially if a new camera comes in hand. These photos were taken for the sole purpose of testing the Super Macro focus mode i saw in the camera of Fuji Finepix S5700 S700


These guys haven't reached the ground yet!, yea the rain drops......
Its easy to leave them unnoticed if you doesn't care to walk around and watch the nature close. In every leaves and flowers we may notice those tears of the nature clinging,  and taking their last breaths of life, before gonna fall down the plants or getting vaporized in the heat of sun-rays. Just gave a try to have them photographed, with a Digicam i wanted to test for its capabilities in seeing things closer.

Dragon Fly in Yellow Garden Flower

dragon fly on yellow flower closeup mode digital image"Dragon fly in yellow flower"....took by Joji. Hmmm........ He is a bit talented in getting insects in his control...took from the school garden near our hostel...

Do you know.. these dragon flies are termed the fastest flying insects....They feeds on mosquitos, insects, bees etc.Have u ever got a bite from a dragonfly..hmm it is sooo good..try to taste it at the very next chance...

It is said that dragon flies are distinguished from damsel flies by observing their wings position while on rest.You know these insects are in the larvae stage for most part of their life under the water.They can be as larvae upto 5 years under water..And this flying stage as a dragon fly will last only for a few months and they dies off..
