Macro Focus Range: The thing buyers usually disregard

Have you ever tried to take a clear shot of some tiny things and found out later that the image is blurred or not in-focus? If yes, do you know why your shot is not successful? One explanation is related to the macro focus range. It's the nearest distance between the camera and the subject such that the camera can take clear and in-focus shots.

For example, assume that your camera's macro focus range is 3 cm. It means you can have in-focus photos as long as you keep the camera away at least 3 cm from the subject. Obviously, the smaller range the camera has, the better the camera is.

The macro focus range is often disregarded from digital camera buyers. They will recognize this issue when all their macro shots are out-of-focus. Suppose you are an owner of a small company and would like to take pictures of your products perhaps for an online store or just a hard copy catalog. We bet you will be frustrated when you cannot take in-focus shots of your small products.

So, we hope the new buyers will keep this in mind and research some information about the macro focus range of cameras before making the final decision.
