Took my gf's FZ7 for a trail run on insects the other day. Being am ex-Fuji S9500 user, I find the FZ7 is great for macros. The IS really makes macro shots mych easier. IMHO, the DOF achieved by the FZ7 isbetter than S9500.

Thanks forall yourkind words.

donna: I'm sure you'll get used to DCR-250 after a few more shots. Just a tip if you don't already know.

1. Zoom your lens to the desired length.
2. Try moving away or towards the subject till you get a fairly sharp image.
3. Focus it either with auto-focus or manual focus. (On S9500 you must focus using manual:?)

Namer: You have good eyes. Yes I did use a diffused slave flash. The wash-out or highlight areas are caused by the in-build flash.

So the on board flash is not great for macros...what about your DOF. Mine is so slim. Like I get just a tiny part of the bug in focus. Should I go to a higher F-stop? Thanks, donna
