Q-tip macro

It was a long Friday afternoon, and a girl testing a Canon G9 saw a box of Q-tips sitting on the desk and decided to do some tests on the point & shoots macro setting...

For these shots, all that was used was a point & shoot digital camera, a box of Q-tips, and for the following shots a mini flash light (lit from behind), and a few shots with the onboard flash also. The camera was set on manual, macro setting (the flower symbol on digi. cameras), and set of manual focus... the AF really didn't work well with the macro setting. 

I was pretty impressed with the G9s good P&S macro quality. But shots like these can be done on most P&S, no fancy equipment required.
