    Nikon Small World Competition Winners

    Some great images here of stuff we donít normally see. There is a link at the bottom of the article that takes you to the Nikon site where you can see the winners and entries all the way back to the Ď70s when the competition started.

    I think a lot of them would have been done using a microscope objective attached to a DSLR. I started to look into what I needed a while back, but got sidetracked and didnít get back to it. You can buy the objectives on eBay, around $80 for the cheaper ones that do the job OK. Then you just need the adapter.
    You need to do the research to decide which magnification is best suited to what you want to do. I think I remember reading that around 4x is a good place to start, and go up to 10x once you start to figure things out.

    I would not invest the money into it. For extra things I would rather invest in a high end telescope that I could attach my camera to
