terriblue 0 Posted December 10, 2009 Share Posted December 10, 2009 I have been wanting to get a point and shoot camera for awhile now. I saw that if I got 200 GB of storage on Picasa web albums that I would get a 4GB Eye-Fi SD card for free. So I decided to get that and shop for a camera that could use the card.I decided to get a Canon PowerShot 1200 Digital Elph because I don't need a lot of functionality and it seemed reasonably priced at $140.00 at Amazon.One of the things I want to be able to do is to use it at the library to take photographs of magazine articles and upload them to Evernote using Eye-Fi. My library has free wifi so that should be possible.However, I notice that there is no mention of a macro setting on the camera. I was surprised. Have I made a mistake by buying this camera, or should I be able to take a photograph of a page of a book with any point and shoot camera and get reasonable character recognition?Terri Link to comment
