I don't seem to have any luck taking macro photos with a Fuji Finepix S5600 - I can't get it to focus on close objects

the bit that provides the focus is the little green light on the right (left as you look down the lens) i think and at close range the inch or so difference means it focuses past the object.
try focusing in a darkened room and see where the green light hits and you can adjust the crosshairs in the lens to compensate, to do macro I normally focus just to the left of the subject and it normally works

oh yes and i use a fuji finepix 5500
