I tried an A620/DCR-250 combo and sent it back as the hit rate was frustratingly low. A combination of tiny dof, the need to use f8 in the usually low light that I get here in the UK (think rain, rain and more rain.....except at the moment ) with resulting low shutter speeds. On the other hand when the sun shines, you just can't see anything on the A620 LCD.

So I am trying to figure out the best way to go. I think that I need to use a viewfinder (evf or optical) as my eyes are just not good enough to define focus on the lcd in sunlight. I am wavering towards selling some rarely used DSLR lenses and buying a proper macro lens from ebay.

Anyway here are a couple from the A620/DCR-250 combo:

A stiletto fly


Leaf beetles
These are not bad really, especially the leaf beetles. Must try this combi one day.

Do you use flash? If you use flash, the EVF is much brighter and easier to use.
