Has anyone tried reverse mounting a 50MM SLR lense on a S7000 for super Macro. If so, what type of success did you have?

I've done it on my S5000 and it worked pretty well:



That's a .5mm pencil lead



That one's the serrated edge of a steak knife, although that one was handheld, so it's a little more soft than it could've been if I'd had my tripod... and lastly:



An ant which was pretty difficult to catch, as they move pretty darn fast for their size, which you'll quickly find out if you try to take super macro pictures of them! Anyway, if it will work this well on the S5000, it will probably work a little better even on the S7000, since it's a better camera. If you try it, make sure you post some photos in the close-ups section of the photo forums here.:-)

What kit did you use to mount the lense?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I did the same thing. I went to 2filters.com and ordered a 55 to 52 adapter for Fuji S7000 I also ordered on of their 52MM Macro rings which gives you mail threads you need for the adapter and lense. I bought a 50MM Canon F lense on Ebay for a few dollars and that was all it took. The filter size for the Cannon lense was 52MM.

I actually just put mine on with a few rounds of black electrical tape, which is easy to pull back off when I'm done. I just have to make sure I pull the tape tight as I wrap it so that it keeps the lens tight and it can't move. Works pretty well. The front of my Canon lens has a spot in the threads which is messed up (which is the reason I got it for so little money, I got it for 10 bucks shipped off eBay), so I couldn't mount it with a thread adaptor.
