With some assistance from the zoom lens, the L820 can shoot close-ups down to 0.4 inch from a subject. However, you'll probably want to use a tripod to get the sharpest shots. The optical image stabilization is good, but as soon as you extend the lens, your apertures shrink and the camera either goes with slower shutter speeds or a higher ISO to compensate (the L820 opted for the latter here, using ISO 360).
