    Here's a pic with my A70, in "point and click" macro mode. It seems to take really good pictures in all the point and click modes.

    Re: 1st question

    You couldnt go wrong with a canon 300d or if you want the faster fps go the 10d.

    All shot with the Canon 10D, EF28-135IS. The aquarium shots were lit with a 550EX speedlite.

    Link no work...needs uppercase JPG at the end.
    I'll post it here until you fix it up :)
    This is Timmy's pic from previous post, not mine! Not a bad pic though....incredible colour

    Edit: Timmy, the code I used to post the thumb linking to full size was
    [U*R*L=http://t-i-m-m-y.port5.com/fotos/Flower%20Photos/slides/IMG_0007.JPG][I*M*G]http://t-i-m-m-y.port5.com/fotos/Flower%20Photos/thumbs/IMG_0007.JPG[/I*M*G][/U*R*L] but without the asterixes...you can see how it works quite easily...

    That's an awesome Turtle shot f@rmboy, did you have the flash off camera, on a cable or something?


    Here's a photo from a real estate shoot I did yesterday:

    The speedlite was on camera but I made sure that the shots were all taken at an angle to the glass to avoid reflections. Some of the bigger exhibits had curved glass which made it near impossible to get off a good shot without any flash reflectons.

    Mind you, a wiresless transmitter is high on my list of kit that I intend to get.

    Is the 15 wide enough on a 10D? I was thinking of getting one for mine but then though maybe a 12 or 13 would be better, but also expensive.

    I think thats about as wide as you should go without vignetting getting really bad.

    I think you may be misunderstanding the term vignetting.

    Generally in photography it's referred to a hazy black ring around the edges of a photo, where something like a filter has just been in the field of view of the lens. Ultra wide lenses like the 8mm fisheye don't necessarily cause vignetting by themselves.

    And while i'd love Sigmas new 12mm rectilenear, so far 15 has been wide enough for me.
