only the center is sharp. You can see a noticeable fallout in sharpness around the edges.

Are you using one of those camera phones!?!

We all know how great the image quality can get, so don't bother.
Also, sharpness is a matter of taste. You say its sharp, I say it can be sharper. So if you're happy then so be it.

Not too bad for a home made lash up like that. You might try a larger magnifying glass to reduce distortion and curvature at the edges.

In the past when I still had my A40, that produced good macros with a 15X magnifying glass mounted over the front with a bit of blue tack. I think the blurred edges you're seeing is the result of the extremely shallow depth of field. From play with my DIY apparatus, the DOF is mere millimeters, and the closest focusing distance is around 3cm. The furthest focussing distance is not much more.

These magnifying glasses are available from places that sell collectors coins and stamps, and might be called a jeweler's loupe, used also by watchmakers. This is what it looks like:

No lah...I might have paid $15 for this, and it's a mighty fine accessory for extreme macro work with a compact digicam. It produces results that makes people go, "HOLY!! How did you do that?!" :bsmilie:

You managed to do that with a BENQ and a magnifying glass? Bravo! Great Job regardless of what others may say.

Would love to see what you can do with a DSLR.

Cheers!

I think it is good to experiment and try out new things.
As long this image is good enough for u, why bother what others think ?? :dunno:
Maybe, u can make use of your own innovation to take some special pics.
Keep up that spirit !!!:thumbsup:
