3 new ones, what a chore!

Post by Cyclops »

I've come to the conclusion that my digi really isnt very good for macro!

I wanted to use the macro adaptor from my 100mm macro lens that i use on my film camera,but because its a smaller thread(49mm) I have to hold it in front of the digis lens. Then when i look at the screen I see vignetting, so i have to zoom in a little, annoying!

I so want a DSLR!
Anyway I played about with it and got 3 shots in the house(Not going anywhere today, have a dodgy tum,feel like cr*p!)

for this shot of an aloe flower i used the pop up flash and set the cam to aperture priority. Then i set the minimum aperture(f8!) which would normally be way under exposed but the flash over rides that and gives me the shot(couldnt do that with film!)

This one was a simpler shoot, digital zoom at 12X, macro adaptor held on,no flash, wanted to see those pastel colours

Finally something different. My daughter likes My Litle Pony and i found them all bunched up on the bedroom floor so....
Lens used naked for this one

Contrasting colors are always nice, even on My Littel Ponies. I really like that Aloe though. :D

Thanks Ken. I was gonna get a 52-49mm adaptor so i could use that close up lens permanently but it means having to zoom in a little to get past the vignetting.
See basically the 100 mm macro lens for my Canon film camera uses a screw in macro adaptor to achieve life size(only goes to 1/2 lifesize without it) and its a high quality close up lens,much better than the cheap +4 lens i normally use,(which suffers terrible chromatic abberation.)
Better quality with adaptor lens but fiddly to use

My little pony brings back many memories for me. (:
And I love how vibrant the colors are in that picture, too.
