It's an interesting project. I have a P&S. Still lacking (1) an old Russian camera and (2) snowflakes.

Amazing! :eek: I wonder how he get's the shot, before they melt? The glass pane must be at outside temperature.

Yeah, it's interesting and sometimes amazing what you can do if you know how to rig up a contraption properly!:)

...and have about 10 yards of duct tape! ; )

A few years ago I tried some with a 105mm Nikkor on a 1" extension tube, but the field of view was considerably larger: Frost - Close up this time.

But needed a lens from a SLR, but seriously, I think the snowflakes are too symmetrical for me to be honest

In what sense; that you don't care much for such exacting symmetry or that you doubt the validity of the flakes?

You could invert any normal lens and use it as macro.

What they sold me at the camera store when I asked about enhancing macro was a filter holder and a set of diopter lenses, which don't help much.

I if you don't need 1:1 or and full resolution, it would work

A use T1i and 100 2.8 macro wouldn't be that much more and would make a much better large print.

But some people just love duct tape.
