In photography, the term 'macro' refer to a close up look of an object. It is a very interesting function in any digital cameras. Many years ago, before the age of digicams, I have acquired a film camera with the 'zoom' function. That was why I like the function so much. Now I prefer digicams with powerful 'zooms' or macro function. You know, you can use the macro function whenever or wherever you like. Even in the dark, if the ISO is right, the macro function can also be used. However, your picture will be rather grainy if you use the 'macro' function.

Well, what an interesting language English is! Macro variously means: * a single computer instruction that results in a series of instructions in machine language * the Monopole, Astrophysics and Cosmic Ray Observatory, a particle physics experiment located at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Abruzzo, Italy. * An abstraction whereby a certain textual pattern is replaced according to a defined set of rules. * An image depicted in the same scale as the subject, focused sharply on that subject. The subject matter is usually very diminutive object. * A series of laser printer escape code sequences, control codes and data whose execution can be initiated with a single printer command. * The study of economic aggregates and their relationships to, for example, money, employment, interest rates, government spending, investment and consumption. * A sequence of text written automatically in a word processor or similar program * A series of image processing steps in a program like PaintShopPro or Photoshop, that have been automated and attached to a single command or when the image is first opened. Basically all these meanings come from adoptoing he Latin prefix macro, meaning large to represent the whole word.

macro in photography is the extreme close up picture of an object. Macro is very nice to use when taking pictures of insects, flowers or any small object that would look in blown up.
