Today started off with glorious sunshine but quickly turned grey and cold. Not much about to photograph compared to yesterday, but these little fellas were actively hunting at various spots around the garden.
I think the size of these is pushing the DRC150 lens to it`s limit, a stronger 250 lens would have been a godsend today....must get one soon!!

Those are great shots, I especially like the first one.

I know what you mean about the size of the jumping spiders and the DCR-150. Here's a couple of shots that illustrate the difference in magnification you can expect from the DCR-250.

This was taken with the DCR5320 5 diopter lens, the magnification is comparable to the DCR-150.



This onewas takenwith the DCR-250. It still wont fill the frame but you wont have to crop out as much.



Just for fun here's a shot with the DCR250 and DCR5320 stacked for 13 diopters. If my hand was more steady I wouldn't have needed to crop it at all.

Thanks for the comments everyone, theyre greatly appreciated.

Thanks for those example shots vaiboy, the last one is superb. How does the depth of field compare on the DCR-250 with the zoom backed off a bit, compared to the other lens at full zoom, so magnifications are similar? Is there any slight increase in DoF at all?
I`m going to borrow back the old set of closeup lenses I gave to my dad for a bit more magnification with these tiny spiders, i think one of them was a 10x dioptre lens.It may prove useful until I can get my hands on a DCR-250.

Nice shots. I am surprised these spiders hold still long enough for you to take your shots.
