thanks for sharing Tchuanye,

My favorites ar #2 and #5 - the "batman fly"!

I am testing my canon A70 for reversed lens use at the moment.

There are still some "light" problems left.

We will need a new forum soon. Some have started with dSLR, others with small canons. Steve should offer a past and part-time members forum ;-)

Sven

As usually very nice & sharp macro series
How far your camera to the bugs?

Nice Macros,

I have recently tried something similar in my garden, although without such good results, the attached image here is the best I could manage with my FZ30 and 6T, but I didnt have the flash on as it wasnt particularly dark.

Any top tips? Also what is the Sigma Close Up lense you are using and do you stack it between the Camera and the 6T??

Cheers

Wow, Those are just incredible. I have done very little in trying to use the macro setting on my fz30. Now that I am getting more comfortable with the camera, I'm going to have to branch out and experiment a little more.

Thanks Sven!

Volfan, macro is an interesting field, but the FZ series would need some good filters to do a good job in that area!

It will be good to post your settings so that we know how the shot is taken.

Its not too bad a shot, but would have preferred a closer or more magnified image.

The sigma CU lens is similar to the nikon 5T and is stacked to the 6T.

Tips wise, well, do use F8, or for your case F11 and use an ext flash. Use the flash power and shutter speed to adjust the exposure.

Many thanks for the comments, I have not had the 6T for long and I tried to get a little closer to the subject and magnify to max, but that was about it, maybe I should set to EZ 5M settings?

Exif is:

F4.5
1/100 Sec
Exp +-0.0
@ 8MB
White Balance on Auto.

Would you say the Sigma was better than the 5T or about the same, is it cheaper? Will stacking the 6T with the Sigma give me better DOF?

Many thanks
