Make-shift Macro Lens - Photography

This morning, I took an old slide projector lens & held it to the front of my 200mm on a D70 for these almost 1:1 macros: <http://www.edgehill.net/1/?SC=go.php&DIR=California/Bay-Area/San-Francisco/our-garden/more/2005-01-05-macro&PG=1&PIC=1> Maybe not the best quality but pretty cool for found junk from the basement at nearly 4,812 dpi!...

    Hmm, actually it's 1:1.7 at 5,347 dpi.
    A 0.56 image on a 23.7mm (0.93 inch) sensor if I understand correctly.

    That's pretty neat. I think you have good possibilities there. The quality
    is up to par with dioptors so you should be able to perfect this with a
    little
    rigging.

    By 20D body arrived a week before my lens.

    Desperate to use it I also stripped an old slide viewer.

    Who needs a lensbaby !

    Yes the element serves as a great Diopter too, after I've taken the green
    tint out.

    I had to layer together up to 5 shots for depth of field in the bug &
    the succulent.

    Wow! Look at the coma! Nice colours!

    You can get pretty crazy with make-shift lenses.
    Use the bottom of a vase that happened to have
    a lens shape in it. Use a pinhole.
