You probably could get it with an A610/20. I'd try it if I had a willing subject to perform tests:lol: . I do know the A610/20's have awesome macro though.

You wont have any problems with the A620 taking shots like that or better.


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

First of all, this shot is absolutely acheievable with an A620. I've had great success with my A95, and your camera is slightly more capable still.

Have you checked out megaweb's sticky at the top of this section? You really should... he tells you exactly what you will need to get these types of shots (primarily a lens adapter, macro coupler, and a reversed MF lens):

Canon A70 Super Macro

Megaweb used an EF-mount 35mm prime lens - probably becuase that's what he had. However, you do not need an autofocus lens, since it's the camera's built-in lens that will do the focusing (or, you will simple move the camera back and forth.)

So, if you're looking for a decent cheap lens, an old manual-focus lens (Canon/Nikon/Pentax, etc) will do quite well, and is fairly cheap to buy. Personally, the FD 50mm 1.8 is easy to find on eBay or local pawn shops and camera stores-- since you will be reverse-mounting the lens, wider focal lengths will give you more magnification. Hence, a 35mm prime might do quite better still.

Personally, I use a Canon FD 50mm 1.8 - easy to use since the lens is already threaded for 52mm filters. Plus it was free - I had stopped using it when I bought a 50mm 1.4 for my AE-1.

Yeah. That'll work. Probably more expensive, but not much quality difference, than an old FD lens. And if you move onto a DSLR you've already got a pretty good portrait lens.

the a620 can go as close as a 1cm i think. Does it really need other lenses?
Will the outcome of the pics differ from the ones shot with the a620?
what are differences ?

i know that with my raynox i can get alot closer than without it. i think its about magnafication ( excuse the spelling ) not just how close you can get.

has anyone done this to a s3? is that possible?
