Macro photos using Raynox MSN-202 and LX3




Finally I have the time to do some real life testing for the Raynox MSN-202 using the Panasonic LX3.

I woke up early last Saturday and went to the park.... honestly, it's one of those barren day where I don't see as many insects and bugs as I would hope for....

Nonetheless, these ants are surely around...







One of my favorite photo of the day.... I don't know what is the name of this insect but at the moment I just nick named it as Bobby Wong....







Another favorite of mine.... a drop of water.... out of frustration as I can't see any other insects....




The one and only fly I've seen....




This one, again I'm not sure if it's butterfly or moth... or what ever the name... Hope you can tell me the name... at the moment I just nick named it as Brian Wong....







Lastly at home, I suddenly met this green thing... again I don't know the name so for now I just call it Bernie Wong.... this guy is so green...

















Additionally, I also took some photos of this green insect using the combination of Fujifilm HS10 and MSN-202.












Overall, I have no doubt about the magnification power of Raynox MSN-202 (3 times more than the Raynox DCR-250). However, the MSN-202 proved to be a more difficult lens to use though in a way it is the only suitable Macro conversion lens for Panasonic LX3. Thankfully however, the MSN-202 can still be used with long zoom camera like my Fujifilm HS10.

I would hope to do more testing with many other insects species using the LX3 and MSN-202 as I believe I just begin to get the grip of it but I still somehow need to do more testing to mastered the full potential and capabilities of this MSN-202.

And again, I would like to remind that the focusing distance of Raynox DCR-250 is about 10-11cm (4 inches) but with this Raynox MSN-202, the focusing distance is a mere 5cm (about 2 inches)
