    yoz gerald, Any good prime lens tt is cheap that can intro?
    Btw i think the F-stop is also quite important right? my dad's slr lens can
    only open until 3.5 only so it is still relatively small and alot of vignetting.

    get a filter extension tube, buy some close up filters and swtich to macro mode. Shoot away! total cost would be less than $40.

    dun worry about having perfect equipment! shoot with what you have! and enjoying shooting!

    Anyone has any recommended setup for macro photography using canon A75/A85/A95 ???

    I know that megaweb has got a really good setup, but i think that it's too costly for me to imitate his.

    Any good alternatives?what accessories exactly do i need to get?

    Thanks!

    Basic piece of equipmemt you need is a lens adapter to allow you to attach the close up lens or filter. You can either get the default plastic canon lens adapter or the aluminium lensmate adapters from US

    BTW I have a 52mm +4 Hoya Close up Filter I'm not using, anyone interested can pm me

    Huh? canon A series have.... la. i have a 52mm one and a 37mm one. But i don really like both of them coz they got their flaws when using them but when it comes to shooting, a 52mm will block ur internal flash.
    I don't like the adapters but i like them when the lens is mounted on haha.
