I am looking to get a flash to do some indoor shooting as well as a lens for macro as i am not satisfied with the focusing distance for my FZ7. Can CSers recommend me some? Thanks

lens? hmm...

dunno about FZ7, but if yours can use close up filters, maybe can try Hoya +1 +2 +4 or get Nikon or Canon Diopters, then get a ring flash... provided you can trigger it...

DCR-250, emoblitz flash, omnibounce, straight metal bracket. this setup never fails on me.

Hi bro,
What lens did you use to take that? Very nice, especially the 2nd one.

DCR-250 is the model of the flash... and straight metal bracket is for holding the flash... can share what are the other two items?

DCR-250 is a macro lens by raynox, not flash. emoblitz flash = word have said for itself, omnibounce is just a sort of plastic which will diffuse ur light so that you will get a softer lighting

Thanks in advance

oh that nothing, just for experiment pupose. btw im not using Fz30 :sweat: thats a Fz5 ya know...

Omnibounce is $30, i think the ones that fit for emoblitz is the one for Nikon Sb28. THe emoblitz around $45-$50 it think. Forgot. But i think for Fz30 is wise to get a better flash, pref manual ones, cuz emoblitz is fully automatic..

My bad on the panasonic model part ... hehe

In factual I'm eyeing for mecablitz 44 MZ-2 ... but seems like metz have yet to establish a local distributor after JJ have raised their flags ..

Anyway my budget is around $200-$300 ... *hopefully first hand flash* ... seeking for buffer in future for upgrade of cam ...

Cheers and Thanks
