    is there a way i can improve on close-ups? when i try to take a pic from quite close, it is out of focus, and i cannot focus it.

    i use a sony DSC-P200. are there any add-ons that can improve focusing?

    thanks

    I think you need a macro lens or something.

    Mm, did you even bother to see what his camera is?

    It's not an SLR! You can't use another lens with that.
    There's actually nothing that you can buy to make the images better. But there shouldn't be any problems, that's a good camera.

    So what exactly is the problem? Out of focus, post a picture please.

    You may need to turn on a "Macro" mode on the camera itself, this allows the camera to focus on closer subjects.

    Try having a read through the manual and see if it mentions a macro mode :)
