    Have heard about extension tubes (and baffles) for awhile, but never tried them out. My buddy loaned me a set of kenko tubes and I tried them out -- I'm impressed! The following shots taken with a Canon 10D + 100 Macro lens, with progressively longer tubes being added after each shot.

    just the lens itself

    the tubes are relatively cheap -- about $120. I think I'll get a set!

    That's with an Intel Web Cam with the lense from a Cue Cat scanner placed on top of the built-in camera lense...
