I tried a watch pic to see if I could get more depth of field with a smaller sensor camera. Oh yeah! I used the Olympus C-5060 at f/6.3 in super macro and manual focus modes. It's virtually impossible to get the whole watch in focus shooting at this angle with a DX camera even at f/22. For "window light" I used off camera flash aimed at a white wall.

Thanks. Yes it's a keeper, but I wonder how long it's going to last. it's about 14 years old :-)
