Thanks for the info Albert. You have inspired me to invest in the raynox dcr-250 macro lens!

Beautiful photo and an incredible video Albert!

Thanks! I'm still using my old D40 with the reversed 18-55mm kit lens for the macro shots. Here's my setup:
However, the FZ35 can also produce good quality macro images. Here are some image samples:

Albert, I see the video was shot with the Lumix FZ35 - is that the camera you used for the macro shots too? If so, what lens adapter do you use? I have the FZ40 but find it impossible to get decent macro images with it.
