Canon Ixus 80IS Digital Macro Shots

One of my favorite camera feature from my reliable buddy, the Canon Ixus 80IS is the digital macro. Symbolized by a flower, one can use this mode to shoot close-ups of flowers or small items. Image Area at Minimum Focusing Distance from End of Lens to Subject

  • Maximum wide angle setting: 35 x 26mm (1.4 x 1.0 in); Minimum focusing distance: 3 cm (1.2 in)
  • Maximum telephoto setting: 102 x 77 mm (4.0 x 3.0 in); Minimum focusing distance: 30 cm (12 in)

So when do I usually use the digital macro feature?

Digital Macro on Food
Just like my beef caldereta recipe, I always shoot using the digital macro when taking shots of my cooked food to be published on my Food Blog, Cook this Recipe.
Digital Macro feature never fails when shooting flora and fauna. Check out other flower shots on my Southern Blooms post.


Macro photography is the art of taking close-up pictures that reveal details which can’t be seen with the naked eye. For example, while we can see the fly on the wall, our eyes aren't equipped to make out the fine details of the hairs on it’s face. This is where macro photography comes in. It gives us a glimpse into the world of the very small, which goes largely unnoticed by us as we hurriedly shuffle through our day.

If you have a desire to photograph insects, close-ups of flowers, or any other small objects, then the macro lens might be what you need specifically used for extreme close-up photography. Try making shooting macro photography without using big expensive lenses by making your own "lens" for close to nothing budget.
