The HX300 can focus as close as 0.4 inch from a subject. In general, the macro results are soft and noisy when viewed at 100 percent and you're better off scaling images down to 50 percent or smaller. However, if you have plenty of light, shoot on a tripod, and set the ISO to 80, you can get shots such as this that are usable enlarged to 100 percent.
