"Duh... I hate making typos on my images where I can't fix them!  The 28mm was at 2 seconds exposure for the f-22 shot, not 3 sec, that was only for my Olympus lens.  And I typed "fous" instead of "focus" on the…"

"Sorry about the delay getting back on this - can't find my AC power supply, and the battery was flat. My close-up rings were too strong - there is a back piece that has a bayonet fitting to fit the Nikon camera mount, a front piece that fits…"

"Ah great! This is a subject that I was walking around with in my head for a while and thinking of starting a topic. So I have been using extension tubes on my nikon lenses for the more extreme close ups. I must say I am really happy with…"

"It's not easy getting depth of focus on really small subjects.  That's why the tilt-shift effect where you take a shot of the city and make the top and bottom blurry will make it look like a miniature. Telephoto lenses have a…"

"I've just been shooting a scene using a 28mm manual lens attached to my T3i, and was able to focus at about 300mm from the subject. The Nikon 55mm AI lens gets in even closer. Might be worth considering if you need to do a lot of close work."

"Extension tubes are good but as you can imagine you end up with a very shallow depth of field. It all depends what you want to shoot. If your subject will be moving about you are better off with a light telephoto lens parked some distance away or…"

Extension tubes or ? are best for macro shots with a DSLR

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i that I plan to use to shoot animation with.Nearly all of the subjects I will be photographing will be under 2 inches tall and I need some closeups. I need to get the lens a couple inches from the figures. However, the best distance that the lenses I have where I can get sharp focus on is 3.6 feet.  I cannot get macro closeups of objects that will be near the lens.I thought of using extension tubes on my camera.Would that work well or are their other techniques I can…See More

"When the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is set to "live view" does it disable the mirror, letting you view all through the led screen or do the mechanics still operate?Or is the mirror left in the up position to let you shoot directly to the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Darren Nemeth's discussion What is the best for my application? StopMotionPro7 or Dragonframe?
"I am just wondering whether the free motion control program that comes with Dragonframe might be of use here. You presumably want to be able to set the system up and let it run right through all 16,000 frames without making adjustments as you go. So…"

"Stop Motion Pro works the same, it activates the shutter and saves the video assist image in one folder, and the high quality in another, when you hit the capture button."

"From what I can remember, Dragon Frame has the option to close the keypad if you don't want to use it. I have operated the virtual keypad even with a physical keypad connected and vice-versa."
