    Haha - I just got bonked for my ENORMOUS macro shots on a Nikon - see other thread - *WARNING - HUGE MBs*. I think they came out OK. If you look, you'll see some came out better than others.

    Hi Brett

    Which Nikkon do you use?
    I was the one that "dissed" the newest Coolpix to Plantakiss.

    I had the 5700 and it was the bees knees, loved it.
    It died on me a few months ago and I had to replace it so I went looking for exactly the same model. I couldn't find anywhere that still stocked the 5700 so, with some reservations, I got the new 8800VR.
    The 8800VR is a lot more complicated, the auto focus is not anywhere near as good as the 5700 and in general I don't like it as much.
    Even the white balance needs adjusting nearly every time I pull the camera out of it's bag.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Those macros were from a coolpix 5600. That's not actually my camera though and I've only used it a little so I can't say much about it. I'm using a circa 2001 Coolpix 775 which has a mere 2.1 megapixels but for my occasional photos it's fine; I rarely print real photos from it. But from what I've found through my limited use of the 5600, it's really incredible for its size and price. It has TONS of settings but is still easy to use and produces really nice photos, the same is true for the macro mode. Good luck with whatever you wind up with!

    I shoot with an Olympus C-750 UZ ($415) which not only has great macro capabilities but has a 10 power zoom...equivilent to a 360 mm telescopic lens. Here are a few examples.
    Both photos were cropped.

    One of my Drosera eating some kinda' fly it caught.



    An example of its ability to "reach" out is this photo taken from about two miles away. They were staging at ten thousand feet for an airshow fly by.

    Both pics are awesome! I wish my drosera had tentacles. I sort of baked them outside and now they're regrowing. Gradually getting used to change is for sissies. Baking them builds character.
