    Just found out my son has a canon a30 camera....have ordered a set of
    lenses for it....Digital Concepts +1 +2 +4 +10 Close-Up Macro Filter Set
    with Pouch For The Canon Powershot A30, A40 Digital Cameras....
    after reading your comment sounds like I will need to really play around
    with it to get any good results....<grin>....am thinking will need to
    make a light box lined with aluminum foil to get rid of any shadows and
    such.....thank you for your comment...any other thoughts would be
    appreciated....have fun....sno
