DCR-250 Super Macro Snap-On Lens – Review:
RAYNOX DCR 250!
This excellent product was well-recommended on forums such as DPReview. Works great with My Panasonic FZ30. The trick for really close work is to get an approximate focus using AF if you can, but then switch to manual focus and move physically to get what you want – I’m thinking here of chasing bugs etc. Of course you have to be patient and you need to practice – just remember your first few shots might be disappointing, although OIS helps
Otherwise for still subjects a tripod will obviously give a better result. Frankly, used with something decent like the FZ30 this outperforms glass on an SLR costing many times more.
