    Look for the Raynox DRC250 add-on lens. Cost about $50.

    Re: Cheap Macro shots

    There are books on how to use other camera lenses to take good Mirco shoots, The name your looking for is Diopter Lenses. You can find them on the Web or in camera stores. There are all about the same unless you get the cheapest you can find, but there is not basically any difference between most of them but for the anti-refection coatings.
