Well I really do believe that a flash is definitely a good thing when it comes to macro pictures. Some pictures from this morning. All with the Kiron 105mm lens, *ist DL and a vivitar 283 flash (hotshoe mounted). All run thru some usm in CS2, first two neat image as well.







Thanks for looking,

Fred

Hi Fred, Nice pics I like them all ... I suggest you check out your Vivitar 283s strobe trigger voltage, it could be a problem, it's best to measure your particular flash, and see if it's within limits for your camera. I've just got around a similar problem with a Vivitar 273, I now couple it optically to the cameras onboard flash. Scroll down this page until you find the Vivitar models ... seems you could be OK or maybe not. ... Jack

Completely agree with you Fred,

I think the kiron105 is the lens I've used most since I got it half a year ago, great lens, and some real cool shots.
