Right these are not very good, as I've just taken them with web cam.
Basic idea is to find a section of plastic tubing that will go over your camera lens. Then just fit the lenses (from binoculars or what ever) in to the tube, but leave about 1/2 inch of extra tube at the back of lenses so it can fit on your camera. Then cover the inside of the tube with felt to stop it scratching your camera when sliding it on and off.

cool, chris, but what's that black, rubber looking thing on the end and the other black ring?

i love innovations like this. take a fixed lens of a non slr and make it more versatile

black ring is just a plastic spacer to stop the two lenses touching each other when put in the tube. The rubber covering the whole thing is off the binoculars and the rubber bit on the end is from the eyepeice. I put the bit on the end to stop light hitting the lens from the side when taking photos, plus it protects the lens if it's dropped. I made one that has 3 lenses in, and you really can get close shots.

This is an example, but not a very good one

Hi Chris.
Congratulations on your accepted pictures.

You are getting good results from a compact and a home made close-up lens

The problem with a lot of compacts is that they have no filter thread to attach extra lenses.
Another way round this is to use a Cokin filterfast kit g350

But of course, you could also make your own.

Ken.

Well Chris you have now started something As it has been pouring of rain today and at a loose end i thought i would try to be inventive so sorted out a small magnifying glass and my beloved olympus C220 and went in search of critters, now because of the formentioned rain they were all in hiding till i found this snail in my green house ( i wasnt standing in the rain ) now i know these photo's r not the best ( it was a first try ) Theres one with the glass and one without, bit hard to juggle them both but it passed some time away, and am now on the look out for some old lenses ( would a pair of glasses work ? )

I will just sit here a little longer with this big grin on my face, as I'm feeling really pleased with myself now
Great pictures. I like your "geese portraits".
