Very clever of you to crop to the centre of the flower.

What aperture did you shoot it at?

I've been a bit absent recently. Some excellent shots as usual. Love that flower shot pinholecam.

Here a few of my recent ones:

Firstly I went on a walk and only took the kit lens. I think it is quite adequate.










Went away for a couple of nights over Easter climbing. These are all with the Elmarit R 60mm:

Are you guys having trouble with adapters that go beyond infinity? If not, which one/s did you buy, and if so, what did you do about it?

I am using a helicoid adapter, so I can get quite close.
Can't remember the aperture, probably f2.8-4.

Most adapters go beyond infinity.
AFAIK, even branded ones do it. (my Hawk's helicoid adapter for m-mount does too)
My ltm adapter is right on the spot though.

For me, I've largely switched to an ebay helicoid adapter that is only available on EOS mount.
Its the shortest flange distance of the modern mounts, so I just get simple adapters (eg. K>eos) to mount my lenses on it.
The helicoid gives close focusing making the lenses far more powerful/versatile than before.
On shorter focal lengths like 35 and 50mm, its near macro level.

I've also heard that there is a K > M mount adapter and that can go onto a better built Hawk's helicoid adapter (which is M mount only)
