    Macro/Micro Photography-How to set up??

    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
