    Default Lenses for Insect Shots

    Hi very very noob here.
    Just bought a 2nd hand FZ30 and want to take close up shots of insects or birds.
    Anyone can give pointers on what lenses I should get?
    Preferably not too top end...still learning.
    Thanks!!
    Point & Shoot?

    The Raynox 150 for a start. Or Raynox 250, which have a steeper learning curve.

    Or any good double element close up lens. Some list can see here:

    But not sure if all are available here in Spore.

    I'm not familiar with this cam. Any thread on the lens? Else, can attach a closeup filter.
