My word, brilliant !!! Bali. Love them all, nice work at these ratios. Superb and good on ya :-):cool:.

Funny how butterflies have hairs actually coming through the eyes huh, always makes me smile. Without macro, we miss out on details like that. Wonderful work :cool:

Danny.

Great images :) love image 6.

Just wondering about the Raynox 250 add on you seem to be good with.

I was going to get the Raynox 150 as I thought the 250 had too much limiting depth of field, but from image 6 I see you have a lot of the image in perfect focus and its not as limited as the fuller zoomed in images in 7 and 8.

Is that just from not zooming in quite as much? as its still very close and very clear and not limiting at all :cool: and I take it its easier to focus at less zoom too? as your depth isnt hell to get right.

tHX!
The more the zoom the less the DOF... I think that is the point. Every macro lens has a limited DOF, but you can reach more DOF with the dcr250 at 4*zoom to the stacked Nikons at 12*zoom.
I don't use the dcr150, but I think it's vignetting to approx 4*zoom, too, so you have to crop the less zoomed images. If you don't want extreme magnification a Nikon 4t,6t, Oly B-macro or a Canon 250d is a perfect choice.
The dcr 250 is hard to use (wind, handshaking, limited DOF), but it is much more easier at zoom 4* to at 12*.

Hi Bali,

I have a 6T and looking to buy a 5T but I'm not able to find one at the stores around town. In you opinion, which lens from the manufacturers that you mentioned abovewill be a good match with my 6T?

By the way, if anyone is selling a 5T please get in touch with me.

Thank you.

Hi!
Maybe a Canon 500d is a good choice, if you want less magnification, but it's more expensive than the Nikon 3t and 5t. I think it's bigger brother is the 250d (maybe 4 dioptre?).

Thanks Bali,

I've ordered the Canon 500D from B&H for $86.95. I wanted the 5T but I couldn't find it. Thanks for your help.
