GX7ii: Macro with simple DIY parts
In the past years I have made an eyepiece adapter for the Powershot S100 (deceased last week) and after purchase of the G7X I wanted to continue using this adapter, but the outer ring is larger, so I glued an extra 58mm ring around the adapter and it works again on the G7X and the inner barrel is large enough that the lens can pop put without any resistance to prevent damage.
But hobbying with some more PVC plumbing parts and some old lenses of a dismantled old 7x50 binocular in my hobby box, I made an adapter from the objective lens which allows to take pictures twice as close as originally and an old eyepiece lens even four times (but with strong vignetting). Image quality is still rather good.
