I finally decided to try a Macro on my new DX7440.
I kinda liked the result except for the glare on the lower leaf so I quit while I felt I was ahead.

Very nice gents.

I'm not a macro man, (BrianHare is) but if you can get your hands on some close up filters, the effects are stunning. (as long as you get the focus locked)



This was taken with my DX6490 with +1,+2 and +4 close up filters stacked on top of each other at full zoom (x10) and this is only resized. (Not cropped)



It needs a bit of fine tuning, but you get the idea.







Try a magnifying glass as well, see how it comes out.

ColdSnail, I really like the bug shot, what was the distance between the camera and the bug?

Looking forward to seeing some shots.

I would just play with the +4 to start with. (I have the same set)

This was taken from around 5 feet away, the main problem is the autofocus, so you will need some patience to get the shot.

Hello,

what are the +1 +2 ++4 close up filters? How do they work?

Very nice shots. This here will be my Desktop screen in the winter.
