Now that I have your attention... LOL
I took these a while back during my "macro period"
Panasonic Lumix FZ30 with a Nikon 6T diopter attached to a 12X Zoom.

Looks like there's hope for us bridge camera guys.
Those photos are a real encouragement for what I have.
Thanks for posting them.

Many P&S and "bridge" camera make excellent close-up & macro cameras. Good lighting is the major obstacle when focusing quite close to lens objective.

Thank you N72. I'm so obsessed with what I see posted, lighting was a distant issue to me, probably since it's rarely mentioned in the posted parameters or EXIF files.
I can see this is a very important priority here.

One advantage of the smaller sensors in p&s and bridge cameras is the greater DOF. I have read that it can be as much as 1.6 times greater.

The trade off is noise at higher ISO and long exposures.
While a bridge camera will never equal the image quality of a DSLR, when used within it's limitations excellent results can be achieved. .

And thank you for posting. I liked all of them especially the X-rated second picture.
What sort of lighting were you using when you took those?

Sorry for the delayed response Rayford, this topic slipped through the cracks for me.
Any how, no special lighting just natural.
Glad you like it.

Thank you, Tinosa.
It's a great inspiration to me knowing I may be able to do the same without buying a lot of extra equipment.
