All of these macros were taken at the Dallas Arboretum within the last 2 weeks.
Camera settings are as follows: ISO 80 F11 at 1/200 of a sec. Lighting was a single bounce flash. The Raynox DCR-250 was used all all shots except on the grasshopper image the DCR-150 was used.

For more detailed technical information how these images were shot visit this link...

Most of the D80 shots were taken with a Sigma 105mm macro lens using the same bounce flash technique as the FZ30. A few of the close up dameslfly shots I used the Raynox DCR-150 along with the Sigma 105mm.

Thanks for your comments.

Very nice macros, Bob. You and a few others lay claim to the smaller world around us. Great job. I can never get a subject to sit still long enough for me, unless it is already de*d.:G

Thanks alot for the lens info.

You mean, the same DCR-150 you use on your FZ30, you can use over your Sigma lens ?? Does the AF work with theDCR-150 on topor do you have to go manual ??

Jotajota, Yes, the same DCR-150 that I use on the FZ30 will fit on the Sigma 105mm, I tried the DCR-250 but the depth of field was just too shallow.

The Sigma 105mm will only do a 1:1 when you add the DCR-150 you can get even greater magnification, but with all SLR cameras you won't get the excellent depth of field that a small sensor cameras gets like the FZ30.

I always use manual focus when doing macro work.
The AF will work but can be very frustrating.

Bayourebel, thanks for your comments. I do enjoy exploring the "small world" with my camera, it does take a little patience though.
