I have created an article on how to take super macro using Canon A70. Check this link at

http://megaweb.clubsna​p.org/articles/a70_rev​ersed_35mmf2/ (external link)


Some sample shots

The original web site has been taken down. OP basically used a lens-reversing ring and an old SLR camera lens in front of his A70 (any other camera would also work) as a highly-corrected "close-up lens"

using small digital camera is portable and you can hold the camera setup away from the body to get attention to the object. spot the object under a good lighting so that can achieve good shutter speed for handheld. :)

Great article on super macro and great images of insects. There are two sources for male thread to male thread macro reversing rings that I have included below. http://www.photosolve.​com/eShopexternal link. Another source which I recently purchased a 52mm to 52mm male to male macro reversing ring from is; http://www.2filter.com ...s/products/macrorin​g.htmlexternal link. Fairly prompt service and reasonable shipping cost.

These are incredible! Wow. The 100mm macro does not show this much detail, close, but not that much. How small of a bug can you photograph and have the detail? How close can you get to the bug?

Very cool! That same setup might work with an A75, which I plan on buying soon.

It's just functioning like a regular close-up lens, albeit more highly corrected and of a higher power than the ones that are marketed as such. A 50 mm lens is the same as a +20 diopter close-up lens. A 35 mm lens is about +30 diopters.
