Tunnel Vision Lens - Lomo Macro!

What some of you might not know is that there is a brilliant part of the Tunnel Vision Lens that lets you (following the golden rule) to get as close as possible!

The macro- lens is part of the Tunnel Vision Lens, that means you have to unscrew the tunnel vision part and only add the small lens (with the tiny little word “macro” on it) to your camera. Oh yes, your camera. It is not only working with the LC-A, but it also works with every camera! The small metal self sticking rings fit on (e.g. Holga, Holga135 and I even tried it (without gluing the ring on it!!!) with my Lubitel). The ring of the lens is magnetic, so you really need the small rings on your camera! Even though LC-A is fully metal and the magnet is strong, PLEASE hold the lens if you haven’t added the ring, otherwise your lens might fall down! Pay attention on that!

When you added your lens, get close (approximately two or three cm) and shoot. Use the smallest distance if you can change it on your camera (LC-A 0,8 m). A good combination is the Ringflash, so you will have lots of additional light, but the opening is too small, so you have to use it without the camera- frame (for LC-A).

    well, I checked the micro-site and it says this:
    "LC-A: Shoot on a bright day with 400ASA film. Set the distance at 0.8m, set the aperture to f/16 for a reflective surface and f/11 for a dull one. Get within on inch (2.5cm) of your subject."

    so does that mean you use the flash setting on the old lc-a?
    and what do you have to do when you have an lc-a+? maybe you can rely on the lightmeter?
