Good attempts, Augustin. What happened to that Raynox 250? Too much power?

Thank you, Mario! Yeah, 150 would have been more than enough for my skills! Frankly, I know nothing about macro shooting, just selecting the option in the focus table and trying to get the best focus. I was somehow surprised myself by the lemon tree leaf shot. I've been lucky with the SP-800UZ which had a splendid macro, then SP810-UZ and P510 weren't so good. SX50 seems to me quite good...

I'll read some theoretical principle, and then try also the Raynox and focus stacking following your advice...

Happy shooting,


I've just realised that the Raynox does not simply attach to the SX50. Annoying. You have to get a 58mm filter adapter first..

I just ordered the 58mm adapter here:

Thanks again! However, I'll probably order it to an online shop here in Romania, as the delivery is free...
