I apologize for offending you. I was not trying to refer to you or to Michael Wolfe or to any of the people who already take good ID photos.
Erica, people would not have such a hard time with your posts if you made an effort to be a bit more humble. You are talking to some of the most qualified fish photographers in the world. Asking others what they think about this improvised set up would have been more effective than saying "our" ID photos could be better with this technique. Have you looked at Lance's, Dave's or Uland's ID photos? They don't get much better..Do you really think taping lenses to their camera's will help?
Please, can an admin delete this topic? I regret posting it. Fritz? Help?

If you intend to upgrade your equipment, perhaps to a DSLR in the distant future, take the time to invest in a name brand lens for you P&S lens reversal project.
I'm familiar with Nikon, and their lenses all the way back to 1959 (F mount) are interchangeable with todays Nikon cameras. At a later date, you can then use that lens on your actual DSLR camera. You save money in the long run.
The old manual focus lenses are still optically superb and built like tanks, unfortunately few appreciate the weight, or want to dick with manual focus and aperture allowing these to run cheap in todays used market.
As a side, name brand stuff holds value for resell.
