I see that I was upset about nothing. I was just shocked when I saw the pictures that were clearly the wrong ones.

I'm sorry but your post came without a preceding. What shots were you referring to?

Oh I found the thread, and it wasn't addressed to me who just happens to be a Nikon user also.

I like that 'circle of confusion'. I feel I've been in one. A huge amount of new info to take in. Going back I see that on the first table my confusion was that the top of the table says sensor size. Usually a column heading indicates what is below, which I understand now is the magnification now, a...

I am confused. In the first table it appears that the sensor shrinks as the field gets larger or vice versa. What does this mean? Also even with this equipment there is a diffraction problem? I thought maybe that was on older or less expensive lenses, so I always use the minimum to get the most in f...

So upload success with image added in first attempt post above. Mostly in focus, from one shot. How many stacks estimated to get it all sharp? I am wondering about hard drive space after reading about the hundreds of shots for the blowfly. Do you keep them all? I just bought an 8T drive partitioned ...

In preparation to restarting IE, I started closing its open links. Turns out I had maybe 40 or 50 as I kept going to different links in the forum and then checking other things such as ebay and products. I couldn't even see all the links as when I kept closing them there were more hidden along the b...

I've been looking in the browser settings without success, then tried to follow 2 different web directions to enable or disable popups, and both went to non applicable dead ends. The first time I opened the upload picture box, browsed to the directory and selected the file I wanted upload and then g...

beetle picture upload attempt

Just an example of the procedure I was using before coming to this forum. I had the camera on a boom and would lower it over the subject. With a 500marco lens I would then shoot it at the smallest aperture. Here is a large beetle. Clicklng on upload picture. Now I got it. http://www.photomacrography...

I was looking at this post Nikon CFI 10X Plan Achromat on Canon 100 mm macro lens, giving 5X. Is that because that lens is only going to 1/2, not lifesize like my 200mm macro? And does tube lens just refer to such lenses as these. I hadn't seen them called that in other situations. Here is a large b...
