More from my EXTREME tubes
ISO: 3200 
Posted By: Ouroboros, 08-11-2010, 01:28 AM

Here's a few more from my insane tube setup.
The ISO was wound right up as these were all hand-held shots.

The pixels are from my friend's iPhone

The fingerprint is a good shot, dirty hands tho.

There is also a side on view of where the thumbnail finishes, you can see damage to the surface of the nail where it has peeled up on a few layers!

The last shot (and kinda scary looking) is a super close shot of my friends beard stubble! Man said he had a shave at about 7am and this shot was taken at about 10pm. With the correct lens, tube and time information, you could probably work out his facial hair growth rate in nanometers per hour! LOL

I dont know about this If it could be done with better image quality it would be more interesting.

But i do understand the hard technical obstacles that has to be overcome, making this possible, so cudos to you!

I think that if you started were you still have the best image quality as possible this could get really interresting, and then you could move closer as you get the hang on it.

Keep on doing it!

Yeah, I know the quality is not the greatest on these shots. It's difficult to get a good hand-held shot when there's 24 inches of tubes on the camera though.

I'm going to see if I can get a better setup to stage these shots. I just wanted to throw up some interesting results. At least this way you will be able to see the progress!

i had the same problem when trying to shoot a spider....my k-x would bump up the iso to max cos there was so little light coming down the lense...

so i had a 5 second exposure at 200 ISO and resulted in this



no grainy , and plenty of detail

apologies if i hijacked ur thread

The skin shots kind of give me the heebie jeebies

Interesting shot of the LCD section but as you can see, Very little room for any error or movement during the exposure.

Good effort though.
