Close up filter with Fa 77 ltd
Posted By: roentarre, 01-02-2007, 10:50 PM

Sorry this is a fly pic - just an example

I just got close up filters delivered to work today. I tested the filter in the hospital garden - full of patients and staff members smoking cigarettes there.

Taken with full sun today, k10d with Best Jpegs. f8 ISO 100 with no inbuilt sharpening. Just cropped the photo with various sizes. Close up filter +3 here

No crop here at all



Gentle Crop



Aggressive crop



It is not too bad at all I think. I still gonna get macro though. Just having a hard time finding fa* macro 200/4

Here is one more example

1/90s f/8.0 at 77.0mm iso400 full exif

Hi Jon. 3 filters only cost me 9 US dollars on ebay...

Not bad for a compromise.

I might have to order D FA very soon. A strong itch here...

Throws a shallow DOF but where focused on the eyes looks very good.
Love the seed.
