heheheh..sorry i had to laugh at that one..if i had 10p for every one thats asked me that this week i could buy another mantis :lol:

canon 400d

its the lens and flash that does the pics..any canon slr will get u pics like that
the real magic is the lens..mpe-65 is one bad ass macro lens...bst on the market.its stricky 1:1 and past tho..i cant get a full mantis body shot with it..1:1 is minimum..1:1 - 5:1..your need another lens to shoot the body.i also have 50mm macro lens for that,

lens - canon mpe-65
flash canon mt-24ex

yer..u can get super crisp shots with lots of dof but u need to stack and its really hard at 5:1..using f/11 like i did for that shot the pic becomes very soft,,for a sharp shot u would need to use f5/6 and i would of only had 1/4 of it in focus then..also i didnt have the camera set still as much as i would of liked - 5:1 motion blur is a real problem.

Only just noticed the orginal picture is wrong :oops: The front leg is labelled incorrectly; the part labelled 'tibia' is actually the femur :wink:
