I've noticed in macro mode, I can't use the zoom or else it won't focus. Sucks.

It makes it hard, and dangerous, to take pictures of say....bees! lol

I just uploaded some pictures of flowers and bugs that I took in the macro mode free hand with the DMC-LZ3. The key that I have found is to zoom the camera to your desired focal point then hold the shutter button down half way and let the camera focus, you may have to adjust your range some but the picture will come into focus and turn out great! It’s funny that you mention bees….I have some I will upload taken the same time the existing pictures were taken.

Good Luck!

I found that hand held I can't zoom past a certain point on macro because when I take it comes out blury but with my tripod it works amazing all the way into 6x optical.

Be steady. Best tip. This is a cropped example of what this camera can do. It's a little less than half the size of the original.
