I probably need to use a tripod. My hands are steady, but my body sways, and movement is the death knell to sharp pictures with this add on. Donna

Yep you have to be rock steady with that 250 but
I think the problem with the first pic is DOF is off
a few millimeters.

But WOW you sure nailed it in the second photo, a very beautiful macro, well executed.

Thank you

How do you deal with DOF when the various things in the picture are at different distances...go to Aperture mode and dial in a higher F-stop? Donna

Great shot's both, imho you don't need the tripod for these shots. For the first one the dof is to shallow for the drops, but I doubt if higher f stops will be enough to get it complete in focus. On the other hand I like it as it is. - Ronny

Wow, Donna - you are getting better and better all the time!! Don't have enough savvy to help you with your DOF question - I will be most interested to hear what the pros have to say. You really aced the second shot. It is sort of reminiscent of an organic molecular chain - how interesting are the patterns of nature! Please keep posting.

You did great on these shots. The second is really nice. I seldom use a tripod most things I shoot won't sit still long enough. But, when you can it is a definite benefit. On occasion I have used my tripod like a monopod which did give me some support and allowed for faster positioning of the camera. For me nothing beats a nice sunny day so you can use fast shutter speeds.

Very nice shots Donna!!!
Looks like your enjoying the DCR-250
I like to use a monopod to help steady the camera.

I can only wish that my hands were that steady and my body swayed like that. I would just settle for the steady hands.:G Very good Donna, keep up the great work and thanks for sharing with us.

I didn't have real steady hands when I was young, else I would have been a master surgeon.:?
