Default Bug closeup GF1

This is either a stink bug or a soldier bug. They look the same to me in reference material. Soldier sounds better . Finally getting so-so closeup images with GF1 + LC55....

this is much better, think you found a good balance of dof and magnification

Thanks Sho, but I'm still getting better results from my FZ. I must keep practicing with the GF.

Think part of the problem is the panny m4/3 jpeg engine is not as good. If you shoot in raw then covert and edit, you can get allot better photo.

f-stop 20, ISO 400. I posted a few more in the Panasonic 4/3 section, but I'm still having trouble auto focusing on my subject. I don't think any type of PP will help me with that....

Try back down the aperture to f16, see if that helps.

saly,

Great composition. The flower leaning to the right and the "soldier bug" diagonally makes up for a dynamic picture. Good luck with your new combo
