The first one should give you a hint to what the second one is.
Really like this one...
brush with red paint
Jug of water when you clean the brush?
(all three of them)
Stand really far away from your computer, and it should make more sense - lol!
do you use a macro lens?
your abstract works are great.
These were actually shot with a 70-200 (@200) with a 50 reversed onto the front of it.
A macro coupler ($10, at most) will let you mount 2 lenses to each other, face to face. The 200 - 50 combination gives me 4:1.
These are old pictures, but this will give you an idea of what I'm talking about:
This is one of the pictures from that shoot:
It's an RFID chip. The chip you see there is 1mm square.
Wow, never heard of that! Thats really weird!
And it's just like a macro lens, except those 400$ stay in the pocket?
...Well, I wouldn't exactly call it cheaper. Those two lenses together cost more than my 100mm macro lens. Just the 70-200 alone costs more than the macro lens, lol.
It probably is one of the cheapest ways to go past 1:1 though.
And heck - if you already have 2 or more lenses, why not? Ideally, you would want a long one and a short one. Long lens divided by short lens equals magnification. 200mm/50mm = 4:1
You don't want to go too extreme though - 4:1 is hard enough!
Working with this setup is pretty tricky...
I still don't have any focusing rails, so I have to focus by moving the subject up and down. DOF at f/32 is probably about a half a millimeter or so. The total focusing range possible (by turning the focusing ring) covers like maybe 1 or 2 mm, so you have to position the subject pretty damn close to where it needs to be.
I'd rather have the MP-E 65, lol! But, till then...
Separate names with a comma.
