    starry, macro don't need to go orchid garden. also orchid garden has a lot of shade so may not have enough light to do a good macro.

    suggest you to look out for anything interesting along the path, anywhere at all. caterpillar, spiders, beetles amongst the grass, little flowers (you said macro right?) and so on. good to train your perception, a good photog needs that.

    I recall someone here using G5? if you dare to manually turn your G5 lens barrel, you can get extreme close-up from your stock G5 lens. you can focus at 1-2cm from the subject.

    have fun, and remember watch out for the ordinary. they look very different at close-up

    bring tripod if you can, just in case you need it and the situation allows.

    also bring softbox, bounce card or reflector in case you need to flash. you guys using external flash? if not then try to take outside in the sun.

    if got neutral density filter also bring in case the sun is too strong.

    remember to use manual mode otherwise your exposure and colour balance may defer from frame to frame

    you using full manual by setting focus, aperture and shutter speed? yah well do some processing in photoshop to get the colours and exposure closer and then stitch.

    chunger, I do have a CPL. Will bring along but I won't be using it. You can have hold of it just take good care. Oh yah. You have the adapter right? cause I need the adapter myself

    New here but had been using the A80 for almost a year now.

    In fact been to SBG once and it was a very enriching trip. Lots of flora and objects to include in the list. Though there is no particular perfect timing of the day but my preference is still the late afternoon-evening time for photoshoot there coz more things to take (people, flora, sunset just to name a few)...

    Just one query to the A80 users if you guys do not mind I posting technical questions. Do you guys experienced too deep a blue hue when taking blue objects (objects suppose to be purple seen as blue in the photograph)?Or is it some silly settings I missed?
