    I just posted this in the wrong forum. Good job you can delete your last post. :oops:

    I was just playing with reversing a 28mm lens on my new camera. I haven't got an adaptor for this one yet so had to use blue tack to hold if on. :oops: It's horribly out of focus, but I was just testing so I'm not bothered by that. It's my bed sheet.

    It's not a SLR of any description. I mounted a 28mm on the end of the camera's 36-290mm lens (it has a 4x digital which I used here to). You divide the focal length of the camera mounted lens by the length of the reversed lens to get your magnification. So a 50mm lens reversed and sitting on a 100mm lens gives you +2.
    The light was from a desk lamp.

    I like it. I gotta try that some time, is it easy without an adapter?
