I have been very pleased with the performance of the Raynox DCR-150 (magnification 4.8 diopter) macro add on lens. When I saw a little used DCR-250 (magnification 8 diopter) for sale I grabbed it. This one magnifies even more though takes more patience to get things in focus. A short while after it had arrived I spotted a tiny spider on the lid of a wheelie bin so the lens had its first try out:
I was chuffed with the result considering I was hand holding a weighty 50D with battery pack, 70-200mm lens, LED ring light and the DCR-250. On top of that the spider was moving.
I haven't found out yet what spider this is. Size - about 8 to 9mm across the legs.
