    Anyone use a Macro Bellows for slide or negative imaging ? I've seen a good deal on a Olympus Macro Bellows with Slide Copy attachment - like this - Slide Copier – Olympus OM macrophoto group I'll use it with a micro-four-thirds camera and OM mount 50mm f3.5 Zuiko Macro lens. But - reading...

    Manual Lens Kiron 80-200mm f4.5 (Minolta mount)

    This is by far the cheapest buy so far. Plenty of fungus and dust spots inside, but mechanically excellent! It cost me 6 dollars on a local online sale site. The lens could not focus on infinity at 200mm( probably incompatibility with my MD to FX adapter). So, I decided to do something... That...

    Wide Angle Macro - Anyone tried the Opteka 15mm f4?

    Noticed some of these going cheap on Evilbay. Anyone tried one? Any good? Or are they garbage? I read that they are similar to the Laowa 15mm f4 Macros but without the Shift capability.

    On lens macro reproduction ratios

    A Lens's maximum reproduction ratio is one thing that is easily measured and somewhat easily understood, yet many mix sensor crop factors in! Why, WHY?! :confused-95: A 1:1 reproduction makes a half-an-inch ant measure exactly 1/2 inches after the picture goes through the lens to the image...

    Micro 4/3 7 Artisans 60mm f2.8 macro

    I've just got this lens so these are very initial comments. Firstly, wow, it's a solid, heavy beast of a lens. It must be milled from solid adamantine, I reckon. Here it is next to the 35-100 (admittedly tiny) lens that came at the same time. Second comment - as you move the focussing ring, it...

    Here are some images taken with the CL and a Canon 50mm f3.5 Macro FD. None are cropped. Nice cheap alternative for macro with the CL. BTW, does anyone know what that first token with the angel might be for?

    Post your macro (and close up) shots here

    I don't believe we have a macro thread anywhere. At least I can't find one. I'll post a couple to get things started! I include decent close ups in the definition by the way. No need for 1:1 reproductions. Unwrapped by Martin Connolly, on Flickr Coriander seeds by Martin Connolly, on Flickr

    Olympus Olympus TG-5 - Macro capabilities?

    Curious if anyone has had experience shooting macro with the Olympus TG-5 'Tough' compact camera? I miss the outstanding macro from my ancient LX7 (one of the nicer things about that camera) - and from what I hear, the TG-5 has a microscope mode which focuses down as close as something like 1...

    SiJ 2015 - Day 18

    The Golden Shower tree I've been revisiting for the SiJ has a lot of new growth so I took a fresh photo in IR. Converted in PS and local contrast enhanced in Perfect Effects 8 to modify the pale foliage.

    SiJ 2015 - Day 7

    I mentioned revisiting this tree on Day One and this is the first new leaves and bud. R and B channels inverted in PS and local contrast boosted with ALCE. The brighter new leaves is, I suspect, due to less IR absorption as a protective measure.
