Just wonder how you were able to focus 100 macro on such short distance.

Intresting, the minimum focus distance is 12" (distance from the sensor to the subject) for the 100 Macro and the lens is 4.7" without the hood. Add a bit for the distance from sensor to the rear of the lens and then add in the hood at ~3.125" and you still have about 4 inches from the front of the hood.

Mmmm, maybe the setup is an "example" and not "actual." He probably just set the camera there, shot the setup and then went and moved the camera to get focus...

just my opinion and opinions are like butt holes, everyone has one and they all stink

With my 100L which is .99ft focus distance, I've had many instances where it will still focus with the subject nearly touching the glass. With the hood on, I've been able to completely cover the subject with it, and still focus. That's on the 50D, though, not sure how it would act on the 5dII.

Having extension tubes mounted may make the difference.
Just my opinion lol

Extension tubes make all the difference. Ordinarily, adding extension tubes reduces the MFD drastically.

Interestingly, with my 100L, adding extension tubes doesn't change the MFD, just reduces the working distance as you add more tubes between the body and lens.


Cheers, Damien

I had it on manual focus if that would make any difference

I never really thought about the numbers, I usually just get as close as I can with it in focus. :)

no, that's actually how it was set up.

Nice backstage. Well done! Total 4 lamps? No flash? And why two last shots are much brighter?

Thanks! The small black lamp I ended up not using, and no flash. I tried to get them all that bright, but sometimes it would wash out the subject or just wouldn't look right, so I played with the settings until I got what I was looking for.

this was a project for a friend of mine.
this isn't actually a setup image, its just a picture my friend took (cause im the one in the picture) to show the location.
this is my first time using different tools in photoshop, because i prefer to work with lr for typical shots which doesn't require much ajustments.
anyway:

I've only got one photograph of my kit in an unusual setup, and even then it's not sitting on the right tripod.

My camera and big lens.
QUOTED IMAGE

And this is the image it produced.

That is outstanding..very clear. Now imagine what you could have done with a flash to light up the other side.

I wonder what GN you need. 58... million?

Of course easier if you you OCF and radio trigger, and take the flash closer to the subject. Although you need really fancy radio trigger, as the signal telling the flash to go off will arrive with quite a delay. Or maybe you bulb-mode and keep the shutter open until you see the flash.

Trigger a OCF from the international space station. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is there now with 6 Nikon D4s. Maybe he can help. :D
