Hi,

I tried out my macro setup which I found at home, and I'm really satisfied with results. Probably for you DCR-250 users it isn't nothing special, but for me it is great, bcause I finally can use full zoom for my macro shots. Only difference is that I'm not using DCD-250.
In first shot you can see tiger beetle - Cicindela campestris. As you can see ther's dark corners, but it's just because I saw them only while viewing on PC so I coldn't correct anymore (too lazy for cloning). This vinegetting (spelling?) dissapears (if I remember correctly) after 4-5x zoom. Of course the beetle was too big for this shot - about 13mm.
Sorry about the pin and broken legs. Haven't got any better specimen.

This is the same thing but with full digital zoom. It is an eye. The DOF is little bit out on the top of eye, but I have to practice shots like these.
Huh, looks like I will have a lot of fun. :-)

Looks like you're off to a good start. What are you using for your macro shots?

Well, I'll post some pictures later, but I'm using part of MBS-10 microscope. It has this lens which I screwed off and it actually fits perfectly with FZ20 lens. Only I have to think how to carefully stack them (now I just hold it infront the lens), and of course now I need a tripod.

Cheers!

If you're holding the lens in front of the camera, I don't know if you'd be able to hold your hand steady enough to keep the subject in focus. My suggestion is to get one of the adapters and close-up lenses mentioned throughout this forum. I expect you will get better results.
