    Default How Can I Do More...

    ...close up using the 18-55mm kit lens only?

    Got this one just now, the insect stood still, perhaps waiting for me, but the lens wont focus if I try to get any closer.



    Exposure: 0.033 sec (1/30)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    Focal Length: 55 mm
    ISO Speed: 200
    Exposure Bias: 0/6 EV

    At the same time, I get this result too...


    Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    Focal Length: 48 mm
    ISO Speed: 450
    Exposure Bias: 0/6 EV
    ISO Speed: 450

    check ur lens' minimum focusing distance. too near, focus goes nuts.

    To use a prime or zoom for macro, can use close-up filter or extension tubes.

    If you not intend to invest too much $$$ at the current moment.

    You can try reversing your 18-55mm kit lens, or get a close-up filter for yor 70-300mm.
