nope, didn't use tripod. it isn't hard to take macro shot as long as the lighting is good. check out some of my shots here: http://www.photo.net/photodb/folder?folder_id=173579Originally posted by AnotherAngle
Mi also have the same camera as u but pic in macro not as good as u. U use tripod?
Another question, I want to shoot my aquarium fish, do u think I need a polariser?
should be less than $700 now. probably the cheapest camera with 320mm zoom and offering shutter priority, aperture priority and full manual controls.Originally posted by revenant
Never know 2900 can perform so well. Btw, how much does the cam cost?
dunno. you have to check. stocks were already running low 2 months back. Cathay Photo never carry it though. List price is $799 but I got it for $700 (with a UV filter) from AP. Others have gotten it cheaper.Originally posted by revenant
Cool. Is it available anywhere?

Great tips!Originally posted by raycsk
Here are some tips on free hand Macro Shots:
1. Your left hand serve as a stand. The palm is used as a base for the camera and place elbow close to ribs.
2. Camera's base of CG should ideally rest on the base of palm (the fleshy portion on the bottom right of your palm).
3. Controlled breathing much like your military shhoting skills. You may choose to take a full breath, partial exhale or fully exhale but no breathing when shot is taken.:kok:
4. Comfort and balance is most important.
I took a shot with my Olympus Camedia C3040 of my finger and the ridgelines came out too! This was done single handedly. Will post it one day.
