Hi, this candid shot explains the fuzzy photos (posted elsewhere). It was alright when I was taking big things that didn't move (like plants) but since I have become interested in smaller and smaller invertebrates, it's reaching the limits of resolution. I'm looking at maybe the Panasonic Lumix 18xzoom with a raynox magnifier next. The Olympus mju is fun though, very handy to have in pocket when out walking, in case of spying a wee beastie.

welcome Robert Whyte. Take a look on Nikon Coolpix (they are great for macro). Or try a DSLR camera.

Thanks Jorge, I had a Nikon coolpix 990 once - great camera, recently died, and I have a DSLR, EOS 300D and use of a EOS 400D with 100mm macro- i was thinking of the pana 18x for the ability to switch rapidly from super macro to far away bird shots. Heard good things about them. I have a tamron 18-200 it's a nice, versatile but slow lens. I hear the ranox magnifiers allow you to be a bit further away from subject.

Raynox lenses are good for bridge cameras (I think that they don't fit for dslr cameras, but not sure here). Canon 400D is a good camera, Canon 40 D much better. Smile But mainly very good lenses are much more important than the cameras itself. Tamron 90 mm is a very good macro lens - try to seek for this lens.

Hi Robert,
That's nice to read. Well, not that it died... I have one too, but it's terrible on the batteries, can say it doesn't work on those anymore, just sucks them empty or anything, kaputt! So only for use with cable, so not very handy Sad

Almost one year passed and there are 36 amateurs/professional dipterologists' photos more 12 photos from childrens/babies that one day will turn dipterologists.... Smile

We have 892 members in 1st March 2008 (of course, there are not really that number... a bit less, but let's go assume that 892). SO, 856 photos to complete the thread. Grin

To update this thread I will show my photo taken in last month. To refresh it. Grin

Dear Jorge,

Quote:"Almost one year passed and there are 36 amateurs/professional dipterologists' photos more 12 photos from childrens/babies that one day will turn dipterologists.... " Unquote.

Since I've given up hope that my children will ever show much interest in anything small that crawls or flies, I attach herewith some pictures of my grandchildren......

Herewith two granddaughters and one grandson:

Well that was an interesting waste of an hour, and even then all the pics didn't load. I am not really a dipterists, more a secretary and general technician these days but here is a photo for all the people helping with Project Kerkini. You can see it's so up to date the Paliuris spini-christi have no leaves.
