In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this product. I myself took about a 100 photos to perfect each and every aspect of the CP 995. Last december my brothers got married. I took about 700 photos in the wedding and related functions & programmes. Then we deleted all useless photos. Hence a digital in general can be useful in these circumstances. I also took some animal life photos in close up. Download the file from the following url. It is a picture of a Bee sucking nectar from a flower. It was taken by my brother using Close Up capture mode. Check the meta data in a image viewing software like Photoshop or ACD See.
