I'm really small.

Few shots using the Raynox 250.
Could be sharper, but these were handheld. Cropped.





First impression is probably..Hmm, Little spiders..
They are in fact mites on a bumblee bee.
This bee was very sickly, and hardly moving. It may have recovered as it had gone the following morning (in a greenhouse).



Anyone else use a Raynox 250? I have seen stunning photos on line, hoping some of you guys are responsible for them.

Re: I'm really small.

Impressive - though your shots aren't sharp, I'd suspect you need a tripod and very careful adjustment to really use this.

Beyond that I haven't the foggiest, anyone with experience of these lenses on proper dslr/macro lenses care to comment.

Re: I'm really small.

Hi Nick..
You're quite right, a tripod is almost essential, well it is if you need a sharp focus.
I use it on the 50-200mm, at full zoom the DOF is minuscule

I shot these using a tripod, and there is good detail there. But these photos only show the possibilities with the Raynox. Photo stacking is necessary to get incredible results.

This is a crop of a tiny beetle?







And just to show the size of the subject, here it is next to a pin head.
