Default Hey Tom...

Heck no, believe it or not, about half the people I talk to are still seeing the old forum. I had posted to the old one and went back to look about an hour later and it was gonzo.....

I finally figured out after reading Steve's message that he had put up a new one and couldn't transfer any of the posts from the old one. I figured everyone would see the same thing when they got here, but many are still seeing the old board..... too weird !

Best regards,

Lin

Hi Lin,

As with all your pics , very nice detail, was this taken with an add on zoom lense to the default lense?

I have a canon G2 , can you suggest a suitable zoom lense that will help me get 'close' to the action.

thanks a ton

Default Just the 990 - no additional lenses..

Hi Suresh, Brooks..
Suresh, I think you can use any of the Canon or Nikon closeup filters with the G2, as long as you have a suitable step-up ring to get the proper match. Actually, there have been some users (check Belgium Digital) who have even got excellent results through quality loupes for really close work.

The CP series Nikons can fill the width of the horizontal aspect of the frame with a 3/4 inch subject - so really need no additional help for most work. There have been a few who have used reversed lenses with the 990 as with a removable lens SLR to get near microscopic results. It's too hard to find the subject this way for me - can't get the little critters to hold still long enough to get them into the frame!

Best regards,

Lin
