RedStickMan, for me the monopod has helped considerably especially at these very high magnifications. I do use a small amount Neat Image to reduce the noise.
I really appreciate your kind comments

Thanks,
Bob

I don't know how you do it. We're using the same equipment (more or less), but your photos are spectacular compared to mine.
I see no appreciable noise and every little possible detail is crystal clear. The hoverfly on the flower is gallery quality.

I have been considering a monopod for macro shooting. I think my hands are just too jittery to do it purely handheld.

Congrats on a great series of photographs.
Images like these just inspire the rest of us to try harder.

seemolf, yes the screen does go dark when you press to expose button.
I just try to freeze at that moment.
I've tried at slower shutter speeds but have had problems with the subject moving.
I appreciate your comments,

Bob

Bob these pictures can be taken in a different way, but not better!

I read that the FZ30 (not the FZ50) has a dark screen during shooting if you syncronize flashes with a shutter speed faster than 1/30.
You must have very steady hands and a good monopod if you can catch a dancing hoverfly under these conditions!
