The digital cameras all have different features. The Nikon Coolpix 950
alows you to get within 1.1 cm, about 1/2". It also allows you to tilt
the view screen so that you don't have to get your face in the dirt
fot a good closeup of any dwarfs. It was for these features that I
purchased this camera, allthough you pay for these fancy features.
