Super cool. Is the first one of the mouth a crop or full frame?



what camera lens is this??FZ??



I have my old Oly 2500L that I rarely use now, but always loved the way I can lay it directly against an object and get a clean shot. I liked it enought to get the wideangle, the zoom and a 1:1 for it.



But would love to know more about your rig...

thanks drax!
What an honour, your first post in this forum is for me!

The first picture is a crop of the second one.

So let´s talk about the equipment:
1. olympus achromat a-life size, 7.7 diopt, 3 lenses
I needed two months to get this one at ebay....
The raynox dcr250 seems to be very good too, but my lens solves some of our light problems too.
2. original diffusor plate
3. panasonic FZ-5, full zoom (8-12x), manual mode, f/8, pre focussed.
You have to be fast, the depth of field is small!
These "power zoom" cameras help you to keep the necessary distance to living animals.
4. no tripod

One warning:
please start with +2 or +4 diopt. Lenses (nikon 3,4,5,6 T or olympus mcon40).
You need some practice to get pictures of the small bugs.
The lenses mentioned above are perfect for flowers, butterflies and big bugs.

My second day with my new lens was better!
So look here or in the panasonic forum, there will be more.
