Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera ?

I can't get my Powershot S5 to go into Super Macro mode - Help!

\015 Instructions say to "Press and hold the macro button for more than one second for Super Macro mode." The SuperMacro logo is supposed to appear on the LCD monitor. \015\012When I hold the Macro button down - and I've tried various lengths of time - all that happens is the regular macro symbol appears in the middle of the screen, then shrinks up to its position among the other items that appear in the view finder. It never turns to Super Macro. All it seems to want to do is toggle back and forth between "Normal" and plain "Macro."\015\012\015\012I've tried all the exposure modes - Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Nighttime, etc. and that doesn't make any difference. \015\012\015\012If anyone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, that would be a big help! \015\012thanks! \015\012\015\012KEB\015

Hi,
\015\012 There seem to be two stipulations for getting into super macro mode,
\015\012First you must be in scn ("A" or "S" mode's only) and "movie", "P", "TV", "AV" or "M" modes only.
\015\012Secondly the zoom Lens must be all the way out.. set at the widest angle.
