    Fun with DP1 Closeup Lenses

    I wanted to see how well the DP1 would perform with a stack of closeup lenses. Would the 3-D qualities of Foveon sensor still shine through? Would the Bokeh look OK?

    For these shots, I attached the Sigma AML-1 closeup lens along with three 46mm Tiffen closeup lenses: +4, +2, and +1. There was very little DOF, and since I was hand-holding the camera, getting an exact focus proved tricky.

    Wayne, let me know how it works out. I'm still finding my way with the closeup lenses and could use some pointers.

    Here's one with just the Sigma AML-1 closeup lens (no vignetting). I stopped down to f/11 for an increased DOF.

    david,
    haven't had a chance to play with them yet. however, here's a page with dp1 macro, as well as infrared and some others.

    Wayne, your macro and infrared images are both impressive and inspiring. You have an excellent eye for composition. Is the infrared effect strictly from an IR filter, or did you have the DP1 internally modified?

    Here's another shot using the stacked closeup lenses.

    Oops. Actually, my bad, Wayne. I should have looked more closely at your post, as well as the referenced site, to see who should receive the credit. No matter, those are excellent images.

    Here's another one using the full kit of closeup lenses.

    This is an old Kodak 35mm camera my father purchased probably in the 1950s. The lens is more-or-less permanently attached to the camera.
