According to this site, http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/SX130IS/SX130ISA.HTM, Macro can be set manually for this camera. Can someone please tell me where to find that setting?
"As for focusing, the Canon SX130 delivers several choices there as well. In Macro, it is capable of focusing on objects as close as 0.4 inches (1cm). You can enter into Macro focusing manually or the camera will do it for you automatically while shooting in Auto, which is nice."

I agree, I got better with auto mode as well. But the question was for manual mode. I've taken beautiful shots very close up of several things in auto and quickly too. I've been very pleased with what this camera can do for what price range this camera is in. It has several advantages that other cameras don't, but a few others still nit-pick it. Batteries is the most of all. Several reviewers here have had great results using high capacity rechargeable batteries and have been able to take well over 300 shots without a problem. Turning off continuous focus will extend your power even more. The advantage of complete control of the flash extends that battery life as well. Use the flash only when needed. Cameras that charge up the flash for every shot, then not needing it, wasted battery power. The manual flip flash gives you this control very simply. The camera will tell you if you need a flash. Having the option of manual control of all camera settings gives the camera many advantages and options of creativity.
