I recently retired the Canon S5IS which I’ve been shooting with for about two years. Many of the shots I took for this blog – especially those extremely close-up shots – were taken with the S5, with a Raynox macro-converter attached.

However, I find that I’ve outgrown the S5 as a photographer. So, I went camera shopping, and decided upon the Panasonic FZ-100 as a substitute. These are some sample shots taken with the FZ-100, also with the macro converter attached.
