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/eShop (external 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/macr​oring.html (external 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.
