This is the third part of my amber trilogy.
The lenses have changed and there are up to four lights.
I have tried digiscoping with my canon in the meanwhile, but this is FZ5 again.
Baltic amber 40-50 million years old, this amber is clear. The shadows give a hint that this animal was fighting for its life, when it was embedded.
ceratopogonidae - gnat, 2mm
#1

#2

#3

#4


phoridae, length 3mm
same as 2nd posting, but improved.
#5

#6

#7


This is a dimension 2-3mm (!) I did not even dream of, when I bought the FZ5 - well done leica!! You have to consider there are some mm of "plastic" and million of years between the insect and the camera.

I am fascinated by the results with different lights and cannot decide which is best.
Maybe You help me?

thanks taz and rebel,
my son likes #6 !
It was not easy to let the amber "disappear", but I am starting to miss it.
The pictures were resized and sharpened a bit, I did not change the colours seen by the camera.

Thanks willow,
forgot the "making of"....
So look at this:


Sorry this is a bad joke, this will not work - I mean digiscoping with the FZ5.
Using a nikkor lens with a binocular MBS-10 will work fine :-) (greetings to CerambyX) !
So lets get back to real life: -enlarging lens
Brick macro studios proudly presents:
FZ5, f/2,8 ,fixed focus, A-mode, Rodenstock trinar F/11 50mm,retro + Olympus alife= +35 diopt.,
The amber is gimbal mounted at the point of focus and can be positioned and turned quite easily.



I wanted to redo my canon A70 digiscoping results with the FZ5.
These pictures were made with a microscopic lens - with diaphragm designed for SLR Cameras.
minolta bellows micro rokkor 25mm f/2.5-22



I used f/8, the DOF is ok but it is very difficult to use such equipment.



.... and this is one of the many reflections I had to look at.
