This is what you can achieve when you reversed your lens. Awesome.

After looking at your gallery :thumbsup: :thumbsup: ... I felt that I'd better trade my 10D with an A70 :sweat:

Great inspiring work! Just curious, what is your actual distance form your lens to the dragon fly? And was direct flash used?
it was 3 or 4 cm away from the object...
internal flash was used, but not directly, because it would be blocked by the lens and my hand, the object was covered completely from the flash..

the setting was:
a70 + lensadapter LADC52C + reversed 50mm

WOW!! very nice photo u have there! you MUST have a very good camera like 1d MARK II!!
Actually... for Macro... digicams have excellent DOF... for DSLRs DOF can be too shallow for that kind of magnification...check out patul gallery.. :thumbsup:

Yah agree with u....

and yes, this picture is superb. didn't know a consumer digicam can take such a sharp and contrasty picture..good job dude!!!

recently just bought a sigma 180mm macro...but i think still can't compare with urs...urs is larger than life right? How can I do it like urs with my sigma lenses or 50mm 1.8? anyone?

CYRN : all handheld.. never use tripod or monopod.. dont have the small one..

rainman: cant compete with DSLR lah.. i think it was 1:3 or 1:2.5 or something... not really sure.. i'm no pro so cant do the calculation.. i heard sigma 105mm f/2.8 does good thing, could compete with canon ef 100mm f/2.8

bigfatfish: just hold the lens in reversed direction in front of your camera lens.. set macro mode on then go.. if you dont want to hold that thing, just try to find male-to-male ring coupler.. or you can DIY by glueing two ring filters in opposite direction, so you can attach the lens to the lens adapter
