I use an old dslr (Sony nex-5n) and their macro lenses which cost about the same as the camera body lol. You can use extension tubes/rings with a normal lens to get the same effect though and the tubes/rings only cost about £10.

@opae ula related uses a clip on thing for his phones camera and gets some real great photos too!
My camera's a Canon powershot A720, 8 Meg Pixels, x6 optical zoom but for the Macro to work it has to be set at Auto (focus) with no zoom. I'm wondering if the problem is trying to photograph something so small (baby Opae ula) through a sheet of glass and into water ? as I just cann't get them in focus the Wood Shrimp is a much bigger target for the camera to focus on and I've no problems.
I've seen a few 'other hobbies' posts in Everything Else one of mine is Macro photo's of insects etc. with the same camera

I think you hit the nail on the head, i dont use the auto focus on my macro lens for this very reason, it just seems to want to focus on everything BUT the shrimp lol.
