Default More testing with the Tamron 90...

When Jacho mentioned the extension tube, I thought I'd try out my home mead one and see what it would do. I was rather pleased. this was in manual mode with the SP90, tripod, and AF 500 FTZ flash F:22 1/180th ISO 100 and about 12-14 inches fron the image.

First one, full frame.



I'm not sure what the percentage of crop this is but, its a major crop.



This one is more than 100% I can see it starting to degrade some but, I was pretty amazed how much detail I could get with it blown up so much.


Next experiment... the SP90 + extension tube + 2XTC !!

Ha Ha Paul! I know what you mean but, its the only target I have that's handy right now. After I have my surgery on Wednesday I should start feeling better. then I can get out and start taking some real photos. but right now I'm feeling sicker than a dog.

Understand that better than I wish I did. Good luck with your surgery, friend.

Good luck and a speedy recovery from your op GW.

Great magnification and resolution from those shots - now to get a real live specimen in front of the lens (I'm sure one of those nice nurses will cooperate and bring you a bottled fly)

Thanks guys, I appreciate
should be a fairly simple operation, just having my gallbladder removed. Its hard to believe something like this can make a person so miserably sick.
I haven't felt like doing anything the past few weeks but, the inactivity is driving me nuts! I mustered up the energy this afternoon to go outside and try a macro shot... what a disaster that turned out to be but, I'll share that story in another post.

Default Lady Luck be by your side!

Mine was removed in 1964. It made all the difference in the world in my vigor. Still, such operations then left big scars, and required about a week in the hospital. One nice thing, the surgeon said he tried to give me a free appendectomy, but couldn't find any appendix. The nice thing is, when my stomach hurts now, I know its not my gall bladder or appendix.
Good luck, and get back here soon. Your contributions are always great.
