Can you describe your setup for moving the camera forward for each shot a little? Purchased equipment or constructed?

came out extremely well as far as quality goes

also nice to finally see pictures from this lens, I was considering it a while back, but the lack of convincing pictures made me get a microscope objective.

I will be looking forward to see more images from this lens, it seems to be working great for you!

This is absolutely beautiful. This is the last thing a little bug sees as a wasp eats him? Makes me so glad I'm not a little bug!

woah, only 2-3mm in size?

Yes, the head of the paper wasp is around 3 mm across at the widest point.

Can you describe your setup for moving the camera forward for each shot a little? Purchased equipment or constructed?

I mounted the entire bellows/focusing rail/camera/lens combination to a micrometer. See here (external link) for an example. Many places will sell this. Next I fabricated two aluminum adapter plates. The first was to bolt focusing rail to the micrometer. The other was to allow me to fasten my tripod to the micrometer. Each adapter plate will vary with the hardware used. You will have to figure out what you need to make your work.

Here is a shot of my setup.

I am very happy with the two canon FD macro photo lenses. I originally had to get them in order to purchase the bellows, which was my primary objective at the time. I am glad I got these now. I hear they go for quite a bit of cash on e-bay.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

Excellent stack. I use smaller cups for my microscope shots, but they are the same plastic. You might want to try styrofoam too. Easier to work with and they give somewhat softer light.
