    It's close up if you're using Microsoft Camera.

    I highly recommend using ProShot for macros. Here is why!

    1. You can have very fine manual focus. Better than Nokia app
    2. Set sharpness to +2 to emphasize detail
    3. Can export high resolution image and edit with this directly on the phone.

    Here is a sample:

    I've been taking pictures with the Nokia App, never knew there was a Microsoft Camera App. I suppose I'll have to buy ProShot. That is a nice flower close up shot, I would have liked to see an extreme close up, in the middle of the flower !

    Microsoft camera is already on your phone. It's included in the OS. Just look for Camera. But I rarely use it. Nokia camera and Proshot are superior in quality

    I am really loving the live image type recreating effect the Nokia camera does. Such a cool concept since I am new to WP and really like the storyteller app and how it puts it together.

    Can you explain when you say "better"? Like does it make the camera take better pictures or it just gives you better options for manual adjustment?

    I am new to WP and impressed by this phone's ability but curious about this Pro Shot.

    Better options for manual adjustment, particularly when using Photoshop which I have spent a great deal of time mastering.

    Thank you for that clarification. I am not that gifted in photo editing but every site I visit is enamored regarding the greatness of ProShot so I definitely will look into it.
