thanks, Sir thats what I thought, how can I go f22 without using extra lights even in sunshine

Use your flash with a diffuser like this

and how can I get less dof? as the light meter was telling me to open up aperture to 2.0.

It will only do that if you tell it the shutter speed you want. Use aperture priority or manual and you can set f-stop to anything you like. It will, though, ask for a long exposure, which is why flash is needed.

heres the video of same:

F/2 is probably way too wide open for macro photography (I usually use something like f/22) and it does appear that the depth of field is extremely narrow.

However, there is something else going on. It looks like the lens might be fogged, like condensation, which usually happens when going from a cold place to a warm, humid place. Or it could even be condensation on the sensor.
