Got maybe around 10 decent ones in a nearby park. Kennedy/Main St

To my surprise, I have found out that the despised built in flash of DL is entirely up to any macro jobs. It is more handy than my regular AF360.

Gee got to do some sensor cleaning as well

Nice pics and well lit. Was this done on full auto? Or did you turn down the flash?

The one I have uploaded to Steveforum was at AV +2 stops.
The rest of the macro were on manual.
The built in flash was on all the macro shots.
I will not rely on the built in flash for anything as it is so underpowered

really nice shots dan.

i've also used the onboard flash for macros but i like an off camera so much more because of the 3d effect it gives. i've got a LED ring light and a ring flash and they pretty much sit on the shelf.. the new 105mm i recently got is not usable with the onboard because of it's length.. once you get the flash off camera i think you'll never go back..

I have not reached that part of learning curve yet re 3 rd effect. I have a hard time adjusting to manual focus for macro shots. Because of my retiree's age eyesight, I have switched all my lens to FA or F. For FA100 macro2.8, auto focus is out of question.

My shooting style is that of a minimalist. Typically I will only bring a couple of lens that I would need. And that is it.

I am holding up a couple of purchase mainly on account of the need to simplify my line-up - my way of fighting the LBA.

Thanks for the compliment from a pro or near-pro.

Daniel
