MX-1 Moth Macro

Spotted this chap on the outside of the window in my kitchen. Grabbed the MX-1 and Metz Mecalight.

Nice!

How do you use your Metz with the MX1? It doesn't have a hotshoe...

Don't need one.
The mecalight is a variable brightness LED array.

Looks impressively close for a point and shoot. Is that max magnification for the MX-1?

This only happens if your photo is hotlinked, i.e. embedded on another site rather than being shown on PF or downloaded directly. Your browser caches images so you may want to do a control + F5 if you're seeing the watermark on this site.
