  • ^GenPen - one word! A M A Z I N G :)

    Question sir, one shot lang ba lahat yan? or stacking din?

    sir baka pwede naman pashare ng set-up mo, if pwede lang naman hehe. TIA
  • 1ST pic: 8-10 shot stacked (bellows on Chinese rail on tripod)
    2nd pic: 2-3 shots stacked (extension tubes handheld)
    3rd pic: 1 shot cropped (extension tubes handheld)
    4th pic: 2-3 shots stacked (extension tubes handheld)
    5th pic: 1 shot minor cropped (extension tubes handheld)

    1st pic: Led lights above left and above right.
    2nd to 5th pic: Flash used with diffuser on a flash bracket

    background used color cartolina and natural leaf or flower...

    if you want to be super accurate when doing studios stacks, you need a linear stage at least 1\" travel kaso mahal... 8k

  • Hello mga Sir/Ma\'am! Baguhan lang po ako pag dating sa photography sa kasalukuyan naka Canon EOS 1100D + 18-55mm Kitlens lang po ako. Gusto ko po sanang humingi ng ng expert opinion sa inyo pag dating sa Macro Photography. Ang nakakahiligan ko po kasi talagang kuhanan eh yung mga 1/6th scale Collections (Hot Toys) ko. I know for some of you will say, \"Hindi ko na kailangan ng Macro lens\" given a approximately 12inch tall/size subject. Nakita ko po kasi sa ibang toy and photography enthusiast na gumagamit sila ng Macro lenses to deliver more fine details sa mga pictures nila. In my case, given a limited budget, gusto ko po muna sana mag hanap ng other option other than buying expensive dedicated Macro lenses. Gusto ko po muna sana ma-utilize kung ano meron ako (EOS 1100D + Kitlens) plus the tweaks na pwede ko pong matutunan sa inyo. Maraming Salamat po!

    Based on my readings ano po ba ang highly recommended in my case?
    Reverse ring?
    Manual Extension Tube?
    Autofocus Extension Tube?
    Rynox DCR250?

    Or sa tingin niyo po ba a 50mm f1.8 lens will be enough na in this kind if photography?

    Sample pictures ko po using my eos1100d + kitlens

  • I can see your subjects are way larger than insects. If you use \"cheap macro\" im pretty sure youll have a hard time. Cheap macro will give you VERY VERY VERY shallow DOF even at f8. Unless you are comfortable with focus stacking (which is time consuming), you can go on that route.

    For the choices above, the safer bet is the extension tube with a lens mounted normally (not reversed). AF is not necessary on macro.
    If i were you, to get the best result \"on cheap\", extension tube and a macro rail will do the job done. Any cheap macro rail will be more than enough for your need.
    For larger subjects just like your toy models, you can actually use any normal to telephoto lens. The wider the focal length, the shallower the DOF on macro.

    Hope that helps.
  • OT:

    talaga po ba madali masira autofocus ng 18-55mm? mga magkano pagawa nun? Btw, im using canon 1000d tia

  • Hi mga sir! pa help naman po, nagkaroon po ako ng interest sa macro photography.
    Papatulong sana ako ano yung mga dapat kong bilin para sa macro photography.

    Ito po yung gamit ko
    Canon 100d
    40mm stm
    18-55mm is
    Tripod - pero hindi matino ( need ko po ba bumili ng bago? magagamit ko po ba yun sa macro?

    Ano pa po ba yung kulang? need ko po ba bumili ng flash or diffuser nlng? extension tube or macro converter?
    Magagamit ko po ba yun pareho sa 40mm at 18-55mm? Ayon, paxenxa na madami tanong. hehe
    Sana po may makatulong sakin.. :D

    TIA! :)
  • Tripod di na kailangan. Yung 18-55mm lang solved ka na! Bili ka ng reverse lens adapter (reverse ring). Built-in flash lang pwede na pero kailangan mo ng flash diffuser kahit diy lang =)

  • @prodigi

    Ahh, cge po..
    Maraming Thank you Sir Prodigi! :))
  • Prodigi saan ba makakabili ng reverse lense adapter at pano gamitin yun sa macro photography. Gamit 700d at meron ako 50mm 1.8 at 17-55 2.7 sigma. Thanks emo monitor ko ang thread na to.
  • ginawa ko lang sir.
  • Thanks Prodigi -- u got a message on how to fabricate a reverse ring.

    Ask ko lang mga masters, di ba gumagalaw mga insects, pano nyo nakunan ito?
  • Buhayin natin ito! Hehe!
