    Re: Macro

    Really some great macro shots here....inspires me to go even closer in the future! I'm afraid I don't have anything that would come close to 1x magnification. Now I've got a target to shoot for!

    Re: Macro

    Finding the "right target" is always a challenge.

    Here are two shots of a baby Aphid which was ~0.5mm (length wise). A dead mature Aphid next to the live baby.

    Wow!!! Respect!!! what great sharp and clear shots of such a tiny object! I know from experience you can hardly (not) see them with your own eyes :-) So only the spot is a great achievement.

    Re: Macro

    Finally got my RJ adapter modified to work with the older FD/FL lenses! What a nightmare! After buying a second RJ adapter (first one got lost in the mail back to China for a return - $100 down the drain there...) I still had to purchase an FL 2x and swap the adapter plate, then modify it to match the proper clocking. Oh well.

    Anyway, finally took my first macro shot with the G1 and the Tokina lens I bought a few months back. It's a pretty blue rock (azurite?) I bought in the art village down the street a few days ago. Here it is:



    Go easy on me =). I definitely need a focusing rail as quite a few of the shots I took were blurry, and I need some bigger lights to take faster shutter speed shots. I have to say this is a really nice lens, and I think I'll be very happy with it in the long run. Love the narrow depth of focus!

    My next step is to attempt a composite image of the same rock to capture the entire piece in focus. That, and I need to come up with a nice digital frame in PS with a cool sig so I can try and be just like the rest of you pros whose photos I love here =).

    I am on the lookout for such a technique, too, but have not yet had the time to study it. There are a lot of stacked shots and a lively discussion on

    http://www.photomacrography.net/

    Perhaps you will find some useful information there.

    Thanks, Peter! I've been studying that site for the past few months as well, and definitely getting a bunch of ideas for stacked shots from them, as well as from the rest of the web. I'll post my results once I get a successful stack going. Another reason for a focusing rail I can fine-tune in small increments. I think there are some on eBay that I'll look at, but I welcome any suggestions on that.

    I have shown a setup with a focusing rail on

    http://www.photomacrography.net/foru...er=asc&start=0

    I got it on ebay from China for around $40 +s/h and I am quit satisfied with it.

    Both my son & I got rails at the following link & they work like a charm. I can stop down to f16 & take several second exposures to get good DOF & still have good image quality.

    Re: Macro

    photosmart, My 2 cents: Keep the area closest to the camera in focus. You can always reorient specimens like this to get the best angle, light, etc.

    Thanks, Vivek! I was actually going for that effect. I wanted to play around with the focus plane and see how narrow it was by isolating the center of the rock to get everything else OOF. I'll keep playing around with different perspectives and with different effects as I learn to do this so I can get a feel for what looks good and what doesn't. =)

    Hi,

    this pic is the result of a focusstack of 20 shots, spaced 2 mm between shots. I wanted to have the front flower in sharp focus, and the back flower OOF.

    Thanks, Jerry.

    Here is a ladybug as I have never seen before. Always wondered about their eyes. Sure enough they do have compound eyes like many other bugs. I needed right lighting and the magnification to visualize it (20/1.7 reversed, f/10, ~4X).

    Re: Macro

    Thanks, Ron.

    Indeed there is more to making a photo than a lens, camera and lights.

    Here is that same bug (~3X, same lens) under UV and it is the lint on it that is fluorescing.



    Ron: It isn't my intention keep details out while it is also not my intention to be posting all nits either.
    This is, after all, an offshoot of a workshop team. Let me just say, if something interests, that is great and I am flattered (and thankful).

    Hi Michiel, picked up the challege I forgot about :-) Well done, and yes the razor thin DOF is the hardest challenge and I do not like stacking (yet).

    Yesterday receive my Canon Macro Photo Lens 35mm f2.8. Some day soon I will use this on my Bellows (and with tubes) and post some results.

    My 1st macro attempt. Ball bearing race 4mm dia/1mm bore. Apologies for all the dirt inside, it looked so clean using normal eye site. GF1/14-45 reversed


    The size of the bearing race can be seen dotting the i on my Lumix TZ7 case.

    Finally got my 52mm reverse adapter, so I took some quick macro shots with my 20mm/1.7 reversed (f/10, ISO100, 1/160 shutter speed, 4:3) off my GH1. Tripod mounted + macro focusing rail. Lighting provided by desk lamp + off-camera Vivitar 285 at 1/16 power bounced off white envelope I had on my desk. Rubix cube provided raised platform for the 'specimens' =). Here's what came out:

    Re: Macro

    The reversed 20/1.7 is not only super sharp but one also devoid of color fringes.

    Such a performance, I have only seen in very expensive (and rare) dedicated macro lenses such as the Macro Nikkors (35mm, 65mm and 120mm).

    Simply fabulous!

    John, You ball bearing is nice (could benefit from better lighting but that is an extremely special and difficult task), a small amount of CA is there. Not too much of a bother compared to many others.

    Aeh - Wow! Glad I ordered that reverse adapter, these 20/1.7 pics look great. I also just picked up a pair of older Macrotars/Elpros (Ithink VIa&b) that should fit the pancake lens but didn't have a chance to try them out, yet. Now all I need it more time to take pictures, much easier ordering stuff when I work on the PC anyway than finding the quite moment to go out there and play

    Looking at the full-size photo I can actually see some color fringes for the pencil lead granules at the edge of the photos. Here's a detail of that:



    Not sure if that's a result of something I did wrong, or the setup I'm using. Still, I'm very happy with the lens. Next time I'll try a lower aperture setting (f/5.6 maybe) and see if I can help the sensor better resolve the details. I realize I'll need to employ stacking to take care of the shallow dof.

    Vivek - how do you calculate the approximate magnification you get with the reversed lens. Based on measuring the 'L' in the lens cap photo, and comparing it to the size of the sensor, I'm getting a 1:1 magnification (the size of the 'L' takes up about 5mm on the sensor, and it's about 4.8mm in reality).

    Re: Macro

    PS42 (do you have another name we can use?),

    Take a shot of a ruler (mm divisions) making sure the ruler is aligned perfectly parallel to the sensor plane.
    Only the clearly focused area would count for magnification calculations!

    I would keep the lens (front and rear) squeaky clean. This is very important.
    A hood (rear lens cap with a hole) also helps.

    Hi.

    Found the bug dead on my work bench, not sure why it's covered in dirt, although i work in a engineering factory on a grinding machine, perhaps it's a mix of grinding dust and mist from coolant spray. It is approx 8mm long.

    GF1/14-45 reversed.

    Re: Macro

    These are incredible images. I have no experience in macro photography but would be very interested in taking some tentative steps in that direction (in other words not having to invest too much at the beginning). Could you give details of the reverse adapter that some of you have mentioned? From a brief search on the web it seems there are several for Nikon mount, so presumably you are using them with a Nikon/m43 adapter?

    I am also unsure of the size. The thread of the 20mm/1.7 is 46mm, not 52mm (which is the filter diameter of the 14-45) so is it necessary to use a 46/52 mm adapter?

    I'd be grateful for any hints as to how to get going.

    Hi Martin.

    I'm a novice at this as well but i'll help best i can. The reversing adapter you need is this one
    and also a step up ring from 46mm-52mm, like this

    Fit the step up ring to the front of the 20mm, fit the reversing adapter to the step up ring and then reverse the lens. Also have a look at post #43 in this. thread. One final thing, you will need to set SHOOT W/O LENS to ON in the G1/GF1 Custom Menu, page 5.

    They work fine for me. Good luck, enjoy macro on the cheap.

    Thanks, John. I have ordered them and look forward to some new toys (cheap ones for a change!).

    Cheers

    Re: Macro

    Thanks for the help--I also ordered the reverse adapter and step-up ring. I'll post some pictures when it arrives!

    I also picked up an adapter for my old M42 Pentax lenses, which came with a macro extender.

    Pentax 55mm at f1.8:

    I got the reverse adapter this weekend. Tried out the 20mm on it--the results are great! Amazing magnification, but having to flip the lens to adjust aperture is annoying. Definitely worth it for $10 though!

    You only have to do that once before you reverse your lens. Figure out what aperture you want to use based on a specific dof you're looking to work with, set that aperture, and leave it. More than likely you'll need additional light for these magnifications anyway, so working with small apertures shouldn't present an issue from that perspective.

    I used mine at f/10 for the few shots I've taken, and the dof was good enough to capture the size of subject I was looking to get. Theoretically it seems the best aperture to use for the GH1 sensor is f/5.6, but for macro work that may be too shallow of a dof - you can get around that by stacking your images.

    Re: Macro

    That's pretty much what I did--set it to f6.3 (I think) and just went out and took some shots. I probably could have dialed it down further to get a wider DOF. The shot above is from 2 captures.

    Re: Macro

    For anyone who's interested, here are some sample magnification factors with different lens combinations. Haven't put on the 14-140 reversed yet, but I will soon. The observed magnifications match perfectly with what I expected to get from the 90mm lens, so I'm fairly confident they're correct.

    Lens combination
    Tokina FD 90mm/2.5 ===> 0.5
    Tokina FD 90mm/2.5 + Leitz Macrotar VIIa ===> 0.7
    Tokina FD 90mm/2.5 + 2x Extender ===> 1.0
    Tokina FD 90mm/2.5 + 2x Extender + Leitz Macrotar VIIa ===> 1.2
    Tokina FD 90mm/2.5 + Panasonic 20mm/1.7 reversed ===> 4.3
    Tokina FD 90mm/2.5 + 2x Extender + Panasonic 20mm/1.7 reversed ===> 5.2
    Panasonic 20mm/1.7 reversed ===> 1.5
    Panasonic 14-45mm reversed @ 14mm ===> 2.4
    Panasonic 14-45mm reversed @ 45mm ===> 1.3

    Enjoy.

    Hi, new here. Wow, this thread is amazing. And intensely informative. Linked from another thread, I couldn't resist posting. I mean, what the heck is it with peppers. Coincidentally my most recent macro test shots also feature a pepper (albeit a sad brown one, not black):

    (poor man's macro set)

    Thanks for your kind words, Jono!

    The spider shot was hand held.

    It is the Dutch (spring) light.
