From super zoom to macro
Apr 25, 2012

I had a Panasonic FZ50, + 1.7X TCON for birding and + Raynox 250D for ladybug.

Since the 1/1.7" on the FZ50 was old and its ISO 200+ showed quite noisy, I got a Canon G1X mainly for low light. I ordered a metal adapter for G1X such that the Raynox 250D can clamp on it. Hope that will improve the G1X's somewhat weak macro capability.

The only thing left here is a teleside convertor for G1X. Hope something will come up soon and gives a better IQ than the FZ50+1.7X does. It may not be easy though.
