Hi! Everyone here in the forum seems to have a Macro Camera for their ants. There's a lot of options and i don't know where to buy from or what kind to buy. I don't care about expenses. So if you happen to have a really good Macro Camera, can you list where you got it from? Any advice would really help or any suggestions for Macro Cameras specifically for ants.  Please list links to where you got it from. Thanks! 

 

Peace


peace!  :afro:

Any camera works as long as you can get a macro lens. Some people have clip on macro lenses for their phones that they us. I use a Canon EOS Rebel T6 with a Canon EF 100mm macro lens.

Uh no... there's a ton on amazon for $100-$200.  It's fine, I don't need one so i'll just end this topic.
