Hmmmmm! Nice! You rascal :cart:..... you took my AA cell shots and gotthen even nearer to Chris Doudet's masterpieces!......got to repeat those two shotswith my +3 tomorrow .... just to satisfy my curiosity. :shock:

The whole point is ..... do we need to shell out on a Raynox ....or can we get to our desired point with single or double element budget alternatives!

Out of interest .... were those last two shots whole frame resized ... or selections resized etc?

Some details would be great.

Cheers, KK

Both shots were whole frame resized without any cropping.

First pic .....Manual WB, 1/8s, F8, iso 100 and lens at full tele in macro.

Second pic was at 1/4s otherwise all info the same. After taking these pics i very much doubt i will be getting the DCR250 as i am very happy with what this filter can do.

This is a pic at same distance at full wide angle with the filter on....forgot to post it last night or maybe i did not want to show the diabetic tablets :roll:

Just had a thought....try getting your filter away from the lens further by using your makeshift filter tube extension thingy you made from old filters by removing the glass....might give the lens more powerful magnification as it moves away from the camera if you know what i mean....i have no means to try that myself other than hand held in front of lens!

I am on the lookout for dead cheap 52mm filters so i can remove glass and push my lens hood out a lil further

I did ........ with the original supplied adapter tube! That is how I ended up using a step-up ring and making my own tube!

Moving the +3/+4 away does increase magnification ....but also CA. To minimise CA you need to minimise the gap! I works reasonably effectively ..... and you won't miss the magnification.

Tony ..... Send me a message off forum with your postal and 2 x 52mm junkers will be on their way to you.

Cheers, KK

Here is my copy of Tony's 1st Yellow rule and AA shot ....using my +3 as opposed to Tony's +4. Whole frame resized to 800 x 600 like Tony's

The red rectangle represents the area covered by Tony's shot.

At first I was disappointed by the focus/sharpness .... until I realised it was just the poor printing quality on my budget rule!

Cheers, KK

Interesting result! The +4 does get a bit closer as shown but wonder what a +10 would do and if it would mean even more CA?

Those shots are all very good,

I dont have a +3 or +4 filter may have to invest some cash I think.

But I thought I'd have a play this is full zoom optical+digital, I don't think itstoo bad, the lighting used was from above, those halogen spotlight thingys.
Just goes to show how much more you can get in the shot with those filters.
