I'm working with all I can justify in cameras. I have a Canon PowerShot A70. I am thinking of getting the 250D 52mm macro lens for it. So far my photos have been adequate but nothing to exciting. Do any of you use a camera like this? What are your thoughts?

I have the Canon Powershot A400. I've found that the zoom function is pretty much worthless if trying to capture macro shots; the pictures get way too blurry. I've been trying to get a macro lens for mine, but they don't make them for the A400. I paid for a custom made one sold on Ebay, but the seller burned me and I never received it.

I took a few photos last night that has me reconsidering whether I actually need a macro lens. Here is one of them. I was about 3 inches or so from the subject with the camera in macro mode.

Hi Jeff,
Looks good. Maybe I just need to work on my technique a little. My best pictures are still the ones I took with my "antique" mamiya/sekor slr. I have all kinds of lenses for it but it is even more of a puzzle to work than my digital camera.

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    Axolotls are amazing until they get sick and then they’re a pain in the backside to treat - I recently lost two axolotls due to unknown causes

    i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!
