I have taken so many close up pictures that I imagine people might start calling me "macro Mike". Well, all those shots were taken with a Kodak 5 megapixel camera without image stabilizing technology. I bumped that camera against a chair and one of the main controls is broken.

This gave me an excuse to shop for a new one. It is a Canon Powershot A650 IS. It can do 12 megapixel shots with image stabilization. I can get much closer to whatever in it's macro mode, down to 1 cm.

I was practicing with it when I made the hand held shot of the sunset at Sand Bay. The old Kodak would not allow a shot like that hand held.

From this point forward the shots I take will be with the new camera, unless I pull the same stunt and ruin the camera somehow.
