Slightly OT, but I went to the B&H website and they also have the Nikon 5T which they say can be combined with the 6T "for even greater effects". Thought that was interesting. Has anyone tried this?
The 6t is a +3 diopter lens. The 5t is a +1.5. Combining (stacking) the two will give you a +4.5 diopter. If youare interested in stonger magnification, consider the raynox dcr250 super macro lens. It is a 3 element +8 diopter lens and works very nicley with the fz series. It comes with a spring-loaded clip-on adapter that fits any diameter from 52mm to 67mm. $50 at bugeyedigital.com

On your tip, Fred, I checked out eBay and it just so happened that there was one of these up for auction. Got me a dcr250 for $29. Thanks, once again.

Excellent price, Nick. I assume it comes with the clip-on adapter. Otherwise, you will need a 55-43mm step ring since the dcr250 has a 43mm thread. Have fun! It's a great little lens.

Its ok, probably the colour buttons :-)

Ringflash I'm not sure Moncho for the FZ10/20. I still use a Sunpak GX-8R ringflash on the Sony CD-1000, but I need to get a different flash slave for the FZ10, pre-flash :roll:, so that will have to wait. Someone here might know and be able help on that. BTW, nice group shot.

Is the light from the dentists lamp not enough ??? or do you need more light. Its the sort of thing that when you get the right exposure using manual settings, you can just set it up again using the same settings.

All the best Moncho and again, thanks :-)

Danny.
