I can get it for $30 at CDW. I'd also need a $20 adapter to fit my camera.
Considering I spent a little over two hundred for the camera, I am blown away by the capability with just the original lens. With the +7 and +10, I am hoping to take some killer pictures. Do you know if Ektanar is an aftermarket lens crafter?

Marcel, definitely start experimenting with your camera! You'd be surprised what most digital cameras are capable of!

m.lemay Awesome pictures guys.

I'm not sure if my camera can do macros. :? I guess I should pick up the owners manual and read it. :lol:

jerseyjay I have Canon G2 w Lensmate +4,+2,+1 macro lens.

I used high aperture, macro setting on the camera, manual focus, tripod, no light in the room and 160Watts of light over 55G tank.

First picture was taken with friends HP camera. Second w/ Canon.

GulfCoastAquarian What camera/settings did you use, Dr Jay? Those bubbles on the second picture are so clear you can almost see the reflection of the rest of the tank floor. Awesome!

kor4ever Okay these are going to be some BIG pictures.

GulfCoastAquarian Every time I dose phosphates, the riccia starts pearling like that. I keep my CO2 levels rather high (35ppm) and they only pearl when PO4 is at least 0.7ppm. Post some of those cherry blossoms here! This thread is just for cool pictures, really.
03-31-2003 03:01 PM
kor4ever Wow, nice pictures Sam. Hmm...now why can't I get my little bunch of riccia to look like that. My father also sent me some pictures of cherry blossoms in Taiwan. I'll post em later if anyone wants to see.

GulfCoastAquarian Ok, not aquatic, but I couldn't resist posting a pic of the beautiful cherry blossoms!

My Sunset Hygro has been growing somewhat stunted. Nitrates and Phosphates were nearly zero with CO2 around 40ppm. Need to keep a tighter rein on things!
