I have stacked my FZ20 with a reversed Minolta 50mm lens. Takes great shots. But because of the very shallow depth of field I have to set the camera precisely to generate a focused picture.
I need to know how to setup the camera. I jury-rig the setup but am very unhappy the inability to adjust the camera.

How do you do it?
Thanks

Could you post a picture of your setup?

MY SETUP:
Have camera on a tripod adapter I made.
My wired remote shutter control.
Walmart 7VDC power supply.
Gutted florescent lamp for 360 degree lighting..
Phayee lens adapter
62/58 step down ring
m58/m58 macro ring
My 50mm lens from my Minolta SRT 102
Aluminum foil reflector is usually around lamp bulb

I'll have to post the pictures from this setup.
Setup and pictures from this setup are great.
