need some help on macros
i have been thinking for some weeks or even mths now.
i have two senarios here,pls advice me which is better.
1)camera alone,1 metre away from subject(bee on flower),zoom in.
2)camera with two +4 close up,1 metre away from subject(bee on flower),zoom in.
my idea is macros so does the two +4 filters capture more details even while i'm in that range of 1 metre?
another question is i'm using S602z,i have two lens adapters,55-52mm and 55-55mm,which size filters should i buy?
been thinking since i wanted closeup,meaning i need to stack,i should go for the 55mm one.wat do you think?

scenario 2 is not possible. when you have close-up filters attached, you have to focus closer. with a +4, you can only focus around 25cm (100/4) from the subject with the len at full zoom. with 2 +4 or a +8, you can only focus around 12.5 cm (100/8) from the subject. When you're closer, the subject is magnified accordingly.
