Crane Fly

Post by pawelfoto »

The Crane Fly looked like last year's. I managed to make 1 stack. It was so dry that it broke into pieces when touched for the first time. I did not have time to invite her to the spa with an ultrasonic bath.
As a lens tube I used an old Sigma 70-210 f / 4-5.6 "beer can" lens (they are on ebay $ 20-50). Same sharpness, better contrast and color compared to the DCR150. Up to 135mm can be used without vignetting. There is no tripod collar, so I put the gutter clamp on the unused part of the 70-130 focal length. Perfect for a small mirrorless camera.

Hi

I see that you are using The Canon M6M2 with the Sigma 70-210 f / 4-5.6 "beer can" lens.

Did the Sigma have a Canon EF Mount that you could mount via the Canon M to EF adapter?

Lastly did you produce this stack using the in camera focus bracketing built in utility?

Thanks, John

I use FD-EF and EF-EFM adapters. I bught also Sigma 70-200 for 20$ with Milolta mount, so it works with Minolta-EF+EF-EFM adapters. Focus bracketing is possible only with AF lenses, so in this case used WeMacro rail. If you're looking for cheap macro lens with AF for EF-M mount I'm happy with Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM well cooperating with internal FB arround 1:1 Please read some remarks here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=43470
