This nice little fellow didn't keep still and made me lose a lot of shots.
A Disney's character, isn't it cute?

Francisco from Miami, United States

Tremaneda foto, me gusta mucho la nitidez y el reflejo en los ojos!

4 Feb 2013 6:21pm

@Francisco: Gracias Fran. Si le pones un buen lente de close-up a tu zoom (y tus otros lentes) puedes usarlo(s) a muy cortas distancias y lo conviertes en un lente macro (2-3 dioptrías es el adecuado, no inventes, el aumento lo hace el zoom). A falta del Sony 3358, el comprobadamente mejor es el Canon 500D ($160) pero yo uso un Marumi Achromat 330, excelente y de $75, pero para comenzar podrías conseguir un kit barato de cuatro lentes ( 1 , 2 , 4 , 10X) por sólo $14 que funcionan muy bien (Neewer, Agfa, Vivitar, todos son buenos y exactamente lo mismo) ¡Ojo... la rosca correcta!.
