Camranger speed

Nikon D7000, 50mm 1.8 lens, camranger only at least 5 seconds between each shot, regardless of shutter speed. With all sharing and auto view off. If anyone else is using the camranger for stacking, without stackshot would love to hear if they can decrease the time between shots. Thanks!

Thanks

Re needing a computer

Tethered to lightroom for indoor trials but my aim is to work outside where a computer would be less practical. Cam ranger has other benefits for out door use. Thanks

Camranger

Sounds great. However, I corresponded with camranger and the Ipad 1 and Iphone 4 cannot view raw images larger than 12mp. It can view smaller jpgs. I suppose I could shoot raw plus jog and judge quality based on the jpgs/ Just a small detail but it impacts me if I go this route. I do not have stacks...

Thanks

I fund the thread thanks.

I will get the 40.5. The Rodagon and Componar came in a package. So i won"t worry about that lens, though I will try it out. I should look around for a Nikon el-n 50mm which would be better.

Thanks again.

Reversing enlarger lenses

I have a componar-s 2.8 50mm which by my calculations has a front end thread of 29mm and a Rondenstock Rodagon 80mm f4 which seems to have a thread of 40mm. 1. My understanding is that to get the best out of these lenses on my Pb-6 I need to reverse them. 2. I have been unable to find any step up ri...

I am very grateful. While I can use a spreadsheet, this s higher math for me. So it will take some time for me to worth through. Great to have this as a project, it will make the winter go faster! I am going to start with some very simple flat plan things, before stacking, just to make sure I have t...

Thanks. Yes its a Pb-6. Thanks for the suggestions! For diffusion I have some Lee filter material I have been using with the Nikon R1C1. Those flashes should well with this, and the LEDs should help me set up my shot. I have a helping hand and I will try that for some of the material, or an old ball...

Thanks

I have access to a relatively new 70-300 that rotates. I have the reversing on camera adapter all I would need is a step up ring from the adapter to 67 mm. Well worth trying! Thanks for the tip. Going manual should pose no problems. Much appreciated!

I think this confirms my thinking that the next step is the 200mm lens and not some combo of reversed lens. For working in nature I was thinking close to 5:1 at best - to mimic the Canon MPE -e 65mm lens. But this may be unrealistic, if I am to maintain 10 inches of working distance.

I started getting into macro photography last summer and had some success with a a Nikon 105mm d lens, kenko tubes and a softbox (when necessary a focusing rail and tripod). I like to do my shooting in the field with bugs in their habitat. That said I would like to see how I might get more magnifica...
