Thanks!
:)

I do need something to rest my camera my hands shake too much with these kind of magnifications!

All of my pictures were at higher res than the ones that I posted here, If I could make better pictures, I will be able to crop a lot, turning the impossible possible!

That´s the same camera I´ve got, I really need to test that.

Did you experience any problem with the auto focus with the lens mounted?

The autofocus doesn't work!

And thank God for that!
:)

How I focus the stuff with this?
very simple!
moving forward or backward...

The SLR lenses must be in the most open aperture possible (low F-stop numbers), and you must zoom it with your digital camera!
:)

zooming with the SLR lenses you will increase or decrase the magnification.
the digital camera lenses should always be in the maximum optical magnification, or you will end up seeing a tiny circle...
hehehe

Take care with your plastic S304 camera...the SLR lenses are usually very heavy!
I don't want you to break anything..

Probably a stupid question, but there must be a tripod out there that would work?

Beautiful photos! :)
