Re: Shutter speed vs magnification

The solution I think is to use the Live view mode together with the silent shooting option (EFCS) Electronic Front-Curtain Shutter

Time to part with some of my prized toys after an annoying injury. Objectives: Motic, also rebranded as Edmund Optics. $350: 20x Plan Apo ELWD (scuffs on front optic) Do these marks harm the final result of the photograph?

how to store Mitutoyo lens

Does anyone know for sure what this label on the box of Mitutoyo lenses means? Should the lid of the box be on the ground and therefore the lens facing upwards, or should the lid of the box be on top and the lens facing the ground? Everything seems to indicate that the second option is the right thi...

Re: Advice needed in recovering colour from dry insects and making it last

You can try Biotrue lens cleaning fluid. A few hours submerged sometimes manages to restore the color of the eyes of some insects long enough, although it does not work the same with all

Re: What is this fly with legs like a flea?

Yeah well I think I'll leave it on "Phoridae"
Within the phorids the genus Megaselia, is one giant group, and the 1400 species currently described is just a drop in the bucket.
Surely it is Megaselia too, but I will not dare to assure this
I think there are thousands of very similar flies

Re: What is this fly with legs like a flea?

Megaselia scalaris Can it be the same specimen as this little fly that I captured in my house in Malaga (Spain) that was on an open melon? It was extremely small, as you can see on my hand https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51603533134_9591b2150a_b.jpg Phoridae by Javier Rupérez , en Flickr https:/...
