  1. #1

    Default Thread size for B300 & How to macro better?

    Need to know if the thread size for B300 is ...??? Btw, how can i dramatically maximise my macro shots if i already have a 250D for my G2??? Use close-up filter? Or any other ways???

    dun use B300 ... just use 250D

    ..... set your G2 to 3x zoom + 250D ...

    One more interesting point to note about the 250D/500D in conjunction with the B300...

    With the B300 alone, there is a minimum focusing distance of about 4m +/- 1m... (using my Sony F707)..

    If I add a 500D in conjunction to it, my minimum focusing distance is reduced to 1m and if I use 250D, it's reduced furthur to 0.5m!!!

    Excellent for taking closeup shots of animals/bigger insects (eg. butterflies, dragonflies) without being too close to scare them off!

    So that means yr camera would be loaded with B300+500D+250D? Man that's a lot...but does it magnify the subjects? Btw, how many lenses can be stacked up at a time???

    not big enuff ? err.... how big do u want to be ?

    for pro 90 10x (370mm ) + 250D will give about 2.5x magnification ...

    tt is an expensive setup ...

    B300+500D+250D can cost up to $500++ and I have already told you ... adding B300 will not increase the magnification ...
