It might help if you indicated what camera you're planning to use them on. But in general, take a few test shots and see what happens.

Well, that's definately a great start! Only advice I can give you is to maybestop downthe aperature a stop or twofor a bit more depth of field. Seems like you got the hang of it though.

More depth of field would help a little but Boily----That's a great- Macro!!!! There are a few guys on the easysharers forum using them I'll check out the posts and get back to you with the web address. You can ask them for advice or I can see if they will come over here to have a talk so to speak! Tell me which you prefer!

I don't know about the lens use, but I do know that one good looking Bug. This must have been a morning picture. He still needs a shave. It looks to me like you know what your doing

It indeed is a great shot. But I am wondering if I read the post wrong. Boily says he has a DX6490 but the EXIF data on the photo says it was taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ20.

I think I was not clear enough:?

Old Jim, I took this picture from a guy on the forum who have a Panasonic DMC-FZ20 to show you an example of macro I will like to do!


Sorry
