Hi, and please accept my appologies If I dont get back to you too quickly on this as I'm on a runaround at the moment.

Just wanted to share this as I've been a keen viewer of Steves reviews for years and once bought a great digicam on the basis of his pics. I had been looking up Holgas and how people added lenses,which is what spurred me on to Macro-ize:? my Cheapo digicam [= KObian/Mercury Deluxe 2.1mp :| ]
I used a cheap Carl Zeiss/ Praktica 50mm slr lens [given to me] and the digicam on macro mode. I''m quite pleased with the second to last shot,as the final shot on the page shows the usual close focus range.

I must warn 56k_rs that this link may take a while to load.

I gues the whole point to this thread is get out there and experiment with your digis and old lenses to see what you can come up with.

All the Best.
