Using the home made adaptor does actually cut CA down

Tony,

Yes you have made it a little better,what did you do?I just re-took thembut set the white balance to the Vase the flowers are standing in I think it's made it better, but just can't get the pictures sharp. they seemto have lots of noise, like the ISO was at 800 it's at 200 will try another with the macro filter at ISO100 see if it improves, But I think it's just the cheap glass used in these filters.

Last one,

Macro almost full zoom F8 Iso 100 reset white balance macro mode.

Was hoping to get much closerbut the camerawill not get a focus lock, have to bring back the zoom a little to get the focus to lock. This just proves the pointI think of the glass, It's just no way nearoptically clear enough so the ttl metering just gives up.

I did almost nothing to that pic....just used the auto levels feature in ACDsee. It must be the quality of the glass in that DKE set....no quality at all :-)

Now i hope you have learned a lesson and get good brand make next time....or just go get some flowers

I knew that the quality wasn't going to be great but you have to try these things, lets be right if we all thought like that we would probably never have bought the camera:!:

mmmm yep I think you could be right flowers.....dcr250 makes sense to me!

I agree...you gotta try and gotta take the risk....cost you nothing really anyway...i am not impressed with the sharpness of the Aux lenses....pretty useless really but maybe in sunny weather they will do better.

Hey ho,

Well at least I got some goodies when I got the 49mm filters...49mm rubber Hoya lens hood, another Polariser and an ajustable centre square filter plus 3 other assorted filters not bad for £5


The centre square in action should have moved over a little so all 4 faces would show, weirdfilter that !
