    My husband gave me a Raynox 250 macro lens/filter for my birthday. It is basically a magnifier that attaches on to the lens adapter for my point and shoot S3IS

    I think its a nice little toy for $44.00, plus the reason I went with this instead of the canons macro for the S3, was with the Raynox you dont have to get so close to your subject, so if its a scary bug I dont have to get so close.

    It was fun playing with it, and I haven't quite mastered it yet, you can see where I have missed the focus of the center of the rose. It seems that when fully zoomed the point in focus is tiny, I was using my camera zoomed in about halfway for the majority of the photos, and the picture that has the circular frame was the lens zoomed all the way out.

    Here is on to show the depth of field, its a rose leaf

    I posted this a few days back late at night, so I thought I would bump it, if you have any views or suggestions, please tell me I can take the bad stuff :)
