    Compact camera suggestions for macro and general

    Thinking about adding a small compact for daily carry that can take a nice macro wildflower photo. My current EDC is a Fujifilm X30 (2/3" sensor), but my preferred wildflower kit is a Panasonic micro four thirds with macro lens. The Fuji is borderline okay for small wildflowers, but I'd really...

    Another flower, another bee.

    I hauled out my old and trusty Nikon D2x with the Sigma 180 3.5 macro lens and waited to find a shot of a bee on the flower,

    Lens Raynox DCR-250 macro converter

    Have had this goodie laying around but not used it much. But suddenly I needed to take some macro photos with my new system, came to think of this and thought it might fit my Nikon Z DX 16-50 lens, and it did! Actually, this is the go-to super macro gadget for Micro Four Thirds because it fits...

    Working theory to combat diffraction of tiny aperture.

    Hello, recently I was thinking of what could help with the diffraction effect from working at f 11, f 16, f 22 and f 32 (very few lenses can close down that much). One solution is working with either manual or automatic focusing rail, which is more or less mandatory for extreme magnifications...

    Looking for cheap light setup for mushrooms.

    Hello, now that autumn is here the mushrooms are starting to spring up and I would like to photograph the. Though I don't have a proper 1:2 or 1:1 macro lens I do have the Tamron zooms that can get very close. But being zoom lenses they do have a very long and large shape to them that will block...

    Three Ages of Daffodil

    Taking inspiration from "Father Ted" I decided to shoot a single daffodil showing its progression. I took five images but I prefer it with these three. All three are 20+ stacks and were taken using a Fuji X-T3 with Fuji 80/2.8 macro with 2xGodox MF-12 flash units mounted to it.

    Godox MF-12 Flash Units

    I picked up the K2 set of these (so 2x flash units plus the adapter rings, gels etc for them. Here is a quick test picture using them mounted onto the Fuji 80/2.8 lens, I use the XPro trigger to control them. Unit A was at the 1 o' clock position (as viewed from behind the camera) and was at...

    So I recently bought this foldable softbox and finally got to mess around with it (thoughts at the end) with some of my Star Trek models. A6000 and 50mm Minolta NCC-1701 NX-01 NCC-1701 D So this was a fun couple of hours. My thoughts and view of the softbox 1-...
