Great shots indeed.

I need some help with my FZ20 macro mode please - somehow I just can't use the macro mode.I switch to macro and get close to the object, e.g. simple flowers, between 10 and 2 cm from the lensand the whole picture is blurred. The auto focus seems to have problems to find the object as it moves through an almost sharp picture for a split second and then remains on the total mess... I have tried the manual focus but couldn't get any better results either.

Admittedly, I am not a camera person but expected the macro on such a camera to work a bit easier..

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

in A, M, S and Macro mode, at 2-3 cm or farer from the subject, you cannot go beyond 2,5x zoom (around 90mm).
You get a maximum horizontal captured frame of c. 4cm.

And c. 2,5 cm if i am not wrong with one Nikon 6T, at 12x and about 25cm distant.

Nikon 4T at 12X and DTS=12" That is 28mm of ruler.

Being new to photography, I find these shots amazing. It's so hard to believe that thesewould beacheiveable for me with a step down and a Nikon close up lense!

Can I just ask if these were taken under natural light conditions, i.e. no flash or other lighting?

I hope to experiment with such shots in the near future, but I onyl received my FZ5 yesterday so more experience required!

These were taken with flash.

Since the internal flash cannot be used directly in combination with the raynox lens,I did a little workaround:



It's not very robust, but it works well.

But I don't think this is necessary with a Nikon lens, because with a4t/6tthe distance to the object is larger und thus the flash should be able to light the whole picture (not only the upper half as when used with the dcr-250).

I love it, a macro ceiling for macro bounce flash. The device looks interesting like an origami art.
