Olympus M1, 60mm Macro, 153 shots, Focus step 1.

Could not resist buying this plant from a local garden centre, a nice hairy test for the camera. Processed with ZS and very little adjustment in photoshop. Workflow dramatically reduced by using the new bracketing feature to adjust lens focus, capture is down to around 1 minute depending on settings. Nikon & Proxxon table now redundant.

It works!!
What's the working distance between lens and subject?

(Lighting perhaps a bit hard?)

If I remember it was about 150mm. Agree lighting could be softer, just need to put some modifiers on my ikea led lamps. Actually need to put together a proper closeup rig, maybe some minature softboxes if they exist.
