More water photos. I'm thinking of getting a Nikon 6T to do these. Right now I have to crop and resize pretty radically. I'm tossing out an awful lot of my FZ20's 5 MP. Anyway, settings for both of these are aperture 2.8, shutter 1/60, ISO 100, flash -2.

First, a clear drop of water.

#2 is very, very nice. The 6T will probably be one of the best $50.00 investments you will ever make. It will allow you to shoot from 12" away and if you have A TCON 14B screwed in front of it you can shoot at 24"s. "Go for it."

Here's a 8X shot of a watch with the 6T+14B shot at 24" distance to illustrate the point.

#2 is a real eye-catcher!
Such shots with our "simple" cameras: amazing!!
Go get your achromats - Panasonic should sell them together with their cameras.

LadyHawk #2 is amazing the blue adds so much but not only that we are seeing fluid dynamics in action.

btw the 6T will be very usefull ... good for flowers too once you use a Nikon CU lens the normal MACRO mode with the Pana FLUZI is pails a bit good as it is.

Ladyhawk - like John and the others I think no 2 is just great. Now my question is how do you compose and capture those shots ? It something that I'd like to try and do.

#2 is simply fantastic! I thought you were using a closeup lens all along. Can't wait to see what you can come up with using the 6t. Don
