Raynox M-250 onto SX40? And other Macro questions.
Sep 26, 2012

I must be confused about the macro use of the SX40. It appears to me that there are 2 MACRO settings. 1-requires no zoom, and the camera seems to need to be almost touching the subject. 2-uses the zoom and you must be several feet away from the subject. So what about inbetween there somewhere? Or is that not possible, and one needs to decide whether to use option 1 or 2, and just deal with it?

Can the Raynox M-250 Macro adapter be used on the SX40? If so, will it attach (clamp on to) the SX40 without any sort of additional adapter ring or tube? Then, how does this impact on the two options mentioned above? Is it best to simply focus with this adapter by physically moving in and out, rather than via the zoom control?

Any samples of the 250+SX40?

Thanks for straightening me out on all this. I'm a real fan of this camera, and would like to broaden my scope with it by attempting some macro. I will soon have access to a M-250.
