MACRO Shots using Reversed Lens Technique
Ok, I read this thread and got all excited:
But here's the deal. The lens I want to reverse onto the HV20 (Sigma 30mm 1.4) has a 62mm thread size, not 52mm, so is there a reverse adapter that will let me use it? Because that thread only talks about one for 52mm threaded lenses

You can try to look for a 62-52mm step down ring.

Ok...also where do I get the reversing ring in the first place? I mean the thread size on the HV20 is 43mm and the size on even the small 35mm lenses is 52mm....is the reversing ring a 43-->to-->52 step up ring as well?
Im confused...I wanna use my 62mm threaded lense, reversed on the HV20. I need the original reversing ring 52mm (but where do I get that that fits on the HV20) + I need the step up adapter from 52-->62 to use my 62 lens right?
Thanks lemme know.
ALSO - wont putting a reverse ring PLUS a step down/up ring put too much distance between the camera and the reversed lens?

I think it should work even with 2 step down rings and a reverse ring.
