Digital Macro on the K10?

I'm still learning all of the features of my k10, however I've been unable to find 'digital macro' mode in the camera or the manual. I'm used to it from my old point and shoot .. is this not common in DSLRs?

Digital macro features are typical of P&S and some entry level DSLRs because they change the settings to better suit the situation, higher depth of field etc.

It is assumed that you know how to shoot with a K10D therefore these modes, macro, landscape portrait action etc are NOT present.

This will force you to actually learn the basics of photography. I would strongly recommend getting a book on photographic basics, just about any book willl do. and read up on what each type pf photography requires. You will then understand what the buttons really did
