Best way to shoot Macros X-S1 ?
3 weeks ago

One thing I really liked the HS20 and HS30 for was bug macros, the X-S1 despite its superior image quality is proving quite a challenge . the only way I can get anything like macro distance is at wider focal lengths which is undesirable both for DOF issues and scaring the target off ......

I`ve got an Olympus MCON-35 which is both high quality and 62mm but it doesn`t work on the XS1 at all (won't focus, period) , any suggestions for best focal length and if the ubiquitous Raynox 250 works ? . I`d like to combine the high quality IQ of the XS1 with my Megazoom bug catching antics
