My home is the panasonic forum.
We simply post pictures, not problems over there.
I did not find much information about the xacti E6 in this forum.
But steve's excellent test with this exotic camera helped me with my decision.

I simply wanted to post some macros without any additions to this camera.
Distances around 1 to 5cm can be used!

I thought this could encourage somebody to use such a nice tool.

These are my examples:























(a friendly hornet at 5cm distance, no flash f:4.0 t/1:15)


I hope somebody likes these pictures.

Sven


Digiscoping?

Well, I have to train it....

Those pictures are absolutely amazing! Thanks for posting them. I've never tried anything close but you have inspired me!

thanks Setter Dog,

I never made such close macros before.

But somebody said that macros of wasps and hornets are impossible at 5cm distance.

So this had to be done!

Great Job, Sven.
Also Nikon CP 5400 (or 8700?) had a great macro mode.

If only you could use all that 12x zoom on our FZs from 1-2 cm on !!! :-)

I had heard about the macro capabilities of the Xactis... very nice images (colors and res apart from your undeniable skills)

thanks Francesco,

shooting at this distance sounds difficult, but many insects cooperate.
The small lens and size of the xacti is not as frightening as the big lens of a FZ5.

My skills were not so important in this case, Emmanuel.....

I just saw an ant picture with a former model and a simple paper diffusing method for the flash.

The rest is simple handcraft ;-)

Hi Little,

we don't have so many thread on the E6x, so please post some pictures too!

I have compared the E6 and E60 and decided to take the E6.
