Very unusual flower. I like the first shot. Can you post more images of the full flower if you happen to go that side again?

Thank you Stefan - interesting to note that this flower is not limited to green!

I think so too - not as sharp as I would have liked. Never mind, it gives me an excuse to get out practising again.

Hi Raghu, will do for sure, as I would like to have another go at capturing a sharp shot and practising with the RayX250.

Ah, I was wondering what type of flower it was and if it came in other colours - cheers for the info.

Dayane,

Very nice....

Question. When using the Rayonx how do you focus? Is the camera set for AF, one of the macro focus are do you go manual focus?

I am still getting used to focusing with this lense but I stick to A mode and then zoom in or out until I get it right and the camera agrees with me. I had read, heard, learnt somewhere that when using a macro lense like this you should not be in Macro mode. I did a set of photos here and unfortunately forgot to take the camera off this setting .......... the photos came out OK. Check out my post here under the title of Hubble Bubble Rayonx250 with my name. Hope this helps - and thanks for your feedback.

Oh, I set the camera to macro AF with my rose pic's.... could that be why they were slightly soft?
