    I was reading Popular Photography today since we have winter and it sux... Then I tried to try something I came across in the magazine, I hope it turns out the way I wanted it too, or close to it... For those people who have seen the latest issue of Popular Photography, I'm sure this is gonna look familiar to you...

    ^ Once the frame is scanned on to the computer, this is aproximately what it will look like...

    ^ My Ghetto setup...

    I had to take the pics I posted with a coolpix 3700 since my other digi is lended out to my gf...

    I was using an Elan 7, with 100 ISO Konica film, and Canon 75-300mm USM III lens...

    I'll post the results once I develop and scan the film.

    I'm intrigued by your experiment, but can't really figure out what you're doing, or why?

    We don't get Popular Photographer in the UK, AFAIK, so I couldn't look it up!

    I don't get it either. All I see is a rather out of focus image.

    Out of focus because you can't really focus when you put a camera on an other camera's eye piece and take pics...

    Go take a look at popular photography magazine when you have time... You'll understand the outcome...

    Sadly, having had a look in WHSmiths, we don't get this mag in the UK - what's the article about?

    Were you trying something along the lines of Macro shooting? looks like the 'reverse lens' Macro-shooting style.

    Maybe you could try sitting the cup on a glass-top coffee table and sitting a light source underneath. ;)

    I don't get it either. You were taking a shot of the viewfinder of a camera? I can understand the need when doing review photographs for articles and such. But I can't see any other reason.

    I'm another from the UK so I guess we'll never know...

    well i completly got it cause i got that magazine :):) i think what you are trying to do here is take a shot of that piece of orange with some of the bubbles on the bottom of it. kinda like product photography but with fruit. i remember that set up and it looks like you have nailed it. im interested to see the outcome!!

    Can't you just explain what you are trying to do so I don't have to go and buy the magazine? :p

    To all the people who are confused...

    I'm trying to do something like this... I hope it turns out as sharp as this one (Which I don't think it will :( )
