    Default Camera Question, Where's the Macro Option?

    I've looked through posts and can't find anything. Seeing I have the Sprint version, I.thought I would post in in this section. I'm afraid to hear the answer on this.

    I honestly don't know if it exists as a mode selection ... I have the S4 and not the Note 3, but I imagine the cameras are pretty similar.

    Have you tried just using it with the "auto" setting? I have found that I can take very good closeup pics with just the standard mode on mine. I sometimes have to back the phone out to get in focus, then slowly move back towards my subject, but the pictures are very high in detail and focus even when taking pictures of objects only an inch away.

    Thanks for the fast reply. I've tried different modes to see if the option pops up, but it doesn't. Yes, you are right. If I'm in auto and good light, I can get pretty good close up. But nothing like my S3, where I had the actual option. Growing pains, lol.

    I'm using Camera FX to semi accomplish this option.

    There is no macro option, even with the kitkat update. This is samsung's doing. I've been using 3rd party apps and achieving this well, as stated above.

    I too enjoy taking close up pictures. The lack of Macro setting on this phone is a downer, but I've tried a few camera apps and like this one a lot. HD camera ultra. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...sdev.hdcameras
    Here are a few shots I took with this app.

    Yes, I have invested in a few 3rd party apps to work around the lack of a macro option. I have really liked CameraZoom FX. It's helped me a lot.

    I dunno. My eyes are getting old so I downloaded a magnifying glass app that also takes pictures. Looks pretty macro to me.
