yoz gerald, Any good prime lens tt is cheap that can intro?
Btw i think the F-stop is also quite important right? my dad's slr lens can
only open until 3.5 only so it is still relatively small and alot of vignetting.

get a filter extension tube, buy some close up filters and swtich to macro mode. Shoot away! total cost would be less than $40.

dun worry about having perfect equipment! shoot with what you have! and enjoying shooting!

Anyone has any recommended setup for macro photography using canon A75/A85/A95 ???

I know that megaweb has got a really good setup, but i think that it's too costly for me to imitate his.

Any good alternatives?what accessories exactly do i need to get?

Thanks!

Basic piece of equipmemt you need is a lens adapter to allow you to attach the close up lens or filter. You can either get the default plastic canon lens adapter or the aluminium lensmate adapters from US :)

BTW I have a 52mm +4 Hoya Close up Filter I'm not using, anyone interested can pm me

Huh? canon A series have.... la. i have a 52mm one and a 37mm one. But i don really like both of them coz they got their flaws when using them but when it comes to shooting, a 52mm will block ur internal flash.
I don't like the adapters but i like them when the lens is mounted on haha.
