 With some cameras, the flash will fire automatically in P mode. In this case, the

auto lamp on the macro flash unit comes on and the flash may not fire if the

surrounding conditions are bright.

 The P mode flash program is designed for general subjects, not macro subjects.

When taking macro photos, the depth-of-field may be very shallow. If the

aperture selected by the camera is outside the allowable range, the proper

exposure cannot be obtained (p. 26 - 29).
