Re: large ant

Hi Javier,
I see the use of zoom lenses like the Canon 70-200 very cumbersome because of the weight and size.
yes, you are right, but you can use FB of ML on your 6D with it :-)
I have a 6D too and like ML and its FB.

B&W

Hello everybody, The other day I was asked for the black and white photos. So I quickly converted a few. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmVfdfA3 In doing so, I used a black and white - control layer or the channel calculations. Attached are a few examples: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51109372109_a9bfe8...

Re: large ant

Hi Javier,
I could imagine your 6D getting some vignetting with the EF 70-200L,
but the 50D should work without any problems.

Re: large ant

Hi Paweł,
trying the focus bracketing and full electronic shutter with continuous lighting
yes, internal FB does not support flash :-(
But FB of ML on 6D works great with flash :-)

Re: Sunset moth scales @29X

Hello Macrero,
well done! :smt041
I think this lens performs better at 100m than at 200mm.

Re: large ant

Hi,

I can only say that Mitu10x with DCR150 or EF70-200L is good for FF.
( I don't use NIKON lenses, not anymore because of CA).

I use ML with my 6D and internal FB with the M6M2.
The readout time of the chip of the M6M2 at full el. shutter = 1/20s

Re: Shutter second curtain shock moving water mount subjects when using OIL objectives

Hello Javier,
Seems it is time to look for a camera with full electronic shutter
Good idea!
I've already switched to M6M2, but it doesn't fire the flashes at the full electronic shutter, so I have to fire them from the controller.

Re: Hairy areas Zerene stackig problem

Hi Paweł,
will I have to work hard at PS
yes, if you want to achieve good results, you will have to work hard :-(

Some workflows:

The crossed hairs can be retouched e.g. by Zerene (using sub-stacks).

Re: Insects, and maybe a discussion about post-processing

Hi Mark,
I don't usually take advantage of the greater depth available in processing from Raw.
So I immediately convert to Jpeg or Tiff format
TIFF is OK (16 Bit)

Re: Insects, and maybe a discussion about post-processing

Hello Lou,
I use LR in the same way and usually set the value of "Details" smaller than 10.
BTW, Amount ~= 100 and Radius ~=1.5

Re: Insects, and maybe a discussion about post-processing

Hi Mark, My workflow depends on the camera and the lens. E.g. ETTR doesn't work with M6M2 but it does with 6D. The 6D doesn't noise at all, but the M6M2 does. I de-noise more for the high magnifications than for the small ones. Depending on the output size, I also sharpen more for the web than for t...
