Re: How to question on macro shooting

Use a tripod when ever possible, and definitely use the voice activated command when you do. Anything to prevent camera shake is advisable. As Clark mentioned, distance to subject is very important, but most likely, your camera will not shoot the picture without acquiring focus on something in the frame. You should also be aware of subject movement, especially if you are shooting outside. For instance, when shooting flowers, even the slightest breeze can make the flower move. And, even the slightest movement becomes magnified due to the fact that you are trying to focus so close to your subject.
You are limited by your cameras capabilities, obviously, so you will need to experiment to see what will give you the most consistent results.
If you are really into macro photography, and you can afford to do so, consider getting a DSLR with a macro lens. You will have better control over focus, camera shake, settings, etc., and that will make it much easier to achieve desired results.
