Doesn't every modern camera have a macro setting? I'm not meaning to be overly technical!

I don't think this one has a macro setting

Closeup and macro are not the same thing.
Close up just means the lens is physically close to the subject of the photo. Zoomed images are a form of closeup, but aren't really a 'closeup' as the lens is still quite distant from the subject.
Macro can be a closeup for sure (and usually is) but magnification is always involved in macro photography while magnification is not necessary in closeup shots.

See, I'm not the expert! My camera has a macro setting and it's cool to use. :)
