The macros in your gallery are excellent too.:thumbsup:
Thank you for sharing the setting over another thread.
BTW, what will be the best that we can get from the bare FZ10 w/o adding any accessaries?
When I shoot bugs, I find that I need to move the camera very closed to it in order to get its bigger image (in Macro mode). If I move the camera further apart and use the zoom function, it's impossible to get the focus most of the time. :( Do you have any advice?

Thanks!

I have not tried it myself just using the FZ10 w/o any close up filters....but you r right in that you have to be very close to the subject..If its an insect, it will tend to fly away. I read somewhere that you can zoom in at 12x to take Macro, but focus distance is 2m! Any closer...you may end up with focus problem.

When just using the Sigma Achromatic filter, the magnification is the same as the FZ10 w/o filter....but working distance is 40 cm....So the benefits is that it allows you to b further and allows ext flash to be used.

If you want to take macro shots....you can buy HOYA close ups. They are single element filters, and are cheaper too. However, the quality of the pics will not be as good as the 2 element filters such as the Nikon 6T. But it still gets the job done....I personally do not have these HOYA filters, but some pp do use them.

Found this at DPreview....

Thanks for the detail info. I'll keep them in mind.

I'm using the FZ3 and I have attached a 55mm->52mm ring adaptor to plastic adaptor.
Reasons :
1. the metal ring is more durable
2. I've some old filters which are 52mm dia.

I may need to find the alternatives for your suggestions:
Sigma Achromatic filter
HOYA close ups
Nikon 6T
I think they are 58mm for FZ10, right?

always wonder why i cannot achieve the closeness people get with their macro shots. so it's through the use of a close up filter. that's new to me. :)

so how much does a nikon 6T cost?
