I bought an SB-800 flash yesterday - man did that thing hurt my wallet. It's mainly for my D70, but i really like the fact that i can use it on my s7000 as well. I'm still at the stage where i'm in absolute awe of what it can do. The fact that i can bounce it (the light) off the ceiling and create natural looking light is awesome.
Anyway, i've tried a few reverse macro shots with my s7000 before, but the poor lighting in my room always made it difficult. So now i can be as shaky as i want, and still get sharp results.
I did try focusing on the tip but it didn't look as good - the narrow DOF meant that most of the shot was completely blurred. I'll definitely be trying a few more shots like this - it's amazing the detail that can be captured that the human eye can't see.
Technical details: Fuji s7000 @ 210mm, 1/125 sec, f/8, ISO 200 + reversed 50mm, f/1.8 + SB-800 with diffuser dome, bounced off the ceiling.
