Clint - you have outdone yourself. Just beautiful. Again, which camera? The first one is amazing.

FZ35 with the LC55 lens - it was watching a bug and jumped on it and ate it. But he was behind a leaf and I couldn't get him chewing.

Love the details Clint...never got to see one that close...even if I could my eyes don't work well enough to pick out the detail in these photos...big Wow! factor!

A Jurassic Park stand-in.

May I ask you Clint, having the LC55 attouched, which mode do you use? (macro, normal or what?)And as I have read, there is an other 'lens' that helps macro photography with fz38, which do you prefer and why?Thanks in advance!alexander

I was switching between the manual mode or aperture or shutter mode most of the time.

If you leave in macro mode the camera wants to choose the ISO (which is usually higher than I want).
So I switch it to either manual - p mode - or shutter and change the focus to Macro Focus. That way I can choose the ISO I want.

I've only used the LC55 with the adapter ring (or "tube") so I really don't know much about other lens.

Some people have good results with the Raynox 250 but I don't have any experience with it.

That LC55, is something you may keep it on the camera all the time, or you have to put it on and off every time you want macro-photo? (Iam afraid I know the answer!).a.

Clint501 Oct 20, 2010 8:11 AM

You have to remove it for regular photos. But screws on and very easily.

kibaris Oct 20, 2010 8:40 AM

Thank you Clint! Helpful and wise as always!a.

Clint - I found that if you go into close-up (macro) mode using the [AF/AFflower/MF] button at the top, you stay in program mode and you can choose all the setting. On the other hand, if you go into close-up mode using the mode dial on the top, you go into full auto (iA) mode. Are we saying the same thing?

Great pictures, Clint. Congrats. Getting back to the FZ35 despite the successors?!?

Clint501 Oct 23, 2010 4:49 PM

Yes - so far the FZ35 has the best quality and the things I want.
