Trying out some macro... I'm having problems focusing due to wind :embrass: , how you guys overcome it?? Pls advise, thanks!! ;)

Like your first photo. What is the aperture for that? Will it be better if the dof is deeper so as to get the wings in focus too.

Nice piece of work.
Cheers

Yo Jason! Switch subjects liao ar? From birds to macro? :blah: :bsmilie:

Good attempts you got there, I like the first one and the last one (the mating moths). As simonsng had mentioned, no choice but to wait for the wind to stop blowing before attempting the shot.

i see, from the reviews the magnification is 1:1, does that mean the size of a 10 cent coin will be the same size on the film?

1:1 means getting the actual size of the subject onto the 35mm film (correct me if I;m wrong ;P)
