  1. What about having a separate image thread just for macro pictures? Hope this will be followed, we can share our macro takes but also our questions, doubts, experiences... ISO 200 f/2.8 1/1000 In this one two pics superposed. ISO 100 f/2.8 1/250
  2. Here is a macro image of my first camera purchased at the age of 13. I still have it in my collection. Thought it would be fun to have a topic just for Macro with the Q2.
  3. I am new to and interested in exploring Macro photography using M240 and M-Macro Ring or Oufro adapters. My questions are regarding DOF. How does the addition of a macro setup generally alter DOF, does extending the lens from the body diminish the normal DOF parameters for a given lens without a Macro ring, and would the DOF of a Wide angle vs. Tele lens be more or less affected by the macro setup? If anyone experienced can comment i'd appreciate hearing about it?
  4. I'm quite new to Leica. Finally saved enough money to buy my first Leica M262 this year. Loving it. Currently, I have the 50mm Summicron and the 28mm Elmarit. Loving both lenses. However there's one small thing that bothers me. I guess since i'm used to DSL's closing range focusing ability, i'm having difficult time adjusting taking photos of small items and items at close range. Since i'm an avid action figure collector and they are rather small, what lens do you guys suggest? 1) 90mm Macro Elmar (However the M262 doesn't have live view, does that matter?) 2) 90 or 75mm Summarit F2.4 (I'm not really taking photos of micro scale items , but rather 2" to 12" tall figures. I can always step back and get a nice detailed head shot, can't I?) thank you very much!
  5. Hi Guys, I am a restaurant operator and I love shooting food when I visit nice restaurants, and I would like to seek your advice regarding taking food shots with a Leica M. I currently use my Nikon D800 + a 50mm F2 Zeiss Makro-Planar to shoot when I go to a restaurant (please note I visit them as a diner, not a paid photographer). However, I would like to explore the capability of taking food photos with my Leica M. I currently own an M240 along with a 50mm APO Summicron lens, a 35mm 8-element Summicron lens, and a 60mm F1.2 Konica Hexanon lens (however I would like to use my 50APO in this scenario due to its sharpness. The 50APO has a 0.7m minimal focusing distance, which is not close enough if I wish to shoot say a piece of sushi. My current setup with the 50mm Zeiss macro lens enables me to get as close as 0.3m to the subject. Furthermore, in a nice restaurant, even with a longer lens, it is rude to move all the way backwards (say a 100mm macro lens) to shoot my food, also a reason I went with a 50mm macro. So I am just wondering whether a macro adapter would help solve my problem. I heard from a friend that with an adaptor, I can only shoot within a particular range from the subject (say for example only from 0.3 to 0.4m from the subject), but this really limits what kind of food I shoot (say a small piece like a sushi, or a large plate of pasta). So I would really appreciate if someone who has experience in this area can help me out. Since I would wish to continue using my 50APO, would a macro adaptor help? And in what range (distance wise) would I be able to shoot if I added an adaptor? Also someone suggested I could also consider using my Zeiss (Nikon mount) on my Leica M with an adaptor, would that work? Would it impact the quality of the photo? Ideally I would wish to use my 50APO on my M to shoot food as I spent quite a lot on this lens and body. Appreciate if someone can help me out. Thanks and regards, J
  6. I confess that I am not easily bored. I can usually find something that will excite me about photography. Today, I was attempting to photograph water droplets with my Canon 5D3 and 100mm macro lens. I had a lot of success and found the whole experience very satisfying. So then, I thought I wonder what the Q will do. I only have the one SF-40 flash, but I decided to try it. The settings are: 1/1600, ISO 100, f/16, flash on manual at 1/32 power. I simply filled a bowl with water. I placed an old discarded photo with an interesting pattern in the water. It's a Epson print and is pretty impervious to water. Then I started dropping water at the area I'd previously focused. Amazingly, it worked pretty well. Not as well as with my Canon 5D3 and 3 flashes, but still I like it. The macro mode on the lens is so simple and works splendidly. Anyway, FYI. I hope you find it interesting. I have.
  7. spent a little bit of time creeping around my front yard this morning, with my M240, DIY extension tube, 50 Summarit and a ringflash not an easy setup to use, especially on insects that are barely stopping, but a bit of fun, and some pictures i am very happy with. This Bee took off just as i clicked the shutter, and managed to fly into focus. a very lucky shot this little guy sat on the flower for a while, giving me plenty of time to take a picture and the rig M240, extension tube, 50 Summarit (can go roughly 1:2 or half life size) and a Yongnuo yn14 ringflash Critiques and comments are welcome !

  11. I was wondering if anyone here has tried to push the macro capabilities on the X Vario, i.e. close up lenses, macro ring flashes, or any other such devices. I have been using the X Vario on its macro setting quite a bit and have been enjoying it, but thought a ring light would help fill-in some of the smaller flowers, and maybe a close-up lens would get me in closer. Any thoughts or other curious experiments?
  12. Does it exist a macro lens (not the bellows) for screw mount Leicas? Right now there's this item on the thiefbay. It seems a lens but I don't know if it's good enough for macro. In case, how close and how good can it be a sorta lens like that?
  13. Hi I've done some searching (both in the forum and online in general) and still can't seem to figure out how to make this all work cohesively. I'm hoping someone can give me some simple instructions - I'm sure I'm just overlooking something. A few months ago, I bought the M Macro Adapter, thinking it would enable macro photography on all of my lenses. I honestly can't tell if it does - it's not at all like the macro experience I'm used to with my Nikon gear (where I can get a fly ball to fill up an entire frame). I play around with it every now and then and can get visibly closer than I can with anything else... but it's not very macro. So I was traveling recently and got an amazing deal on the collapsible Elmar 90 Macro kit - add in the tax refund and I felt morally obligated to buy it (that's the GAS speaking). It comes with the lens, the goggles, and a variable finder. Nice. So... to shoot macro - what pieces arm I supposed to be using ? Any basic guidance anyone could provide will be super appreciated ! Thanks

  22. Hi I am probably missing something I have Leica CL with M Adapter since I shoot mostly with my M lenses, I also had some additional adapter from Rollei QBM to M Recently I bought Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm f/1.4 HFT Lens for Rollei QBM (made in West Germany) wonderful lens in itself, now when I mounted it on Leica CL everything works well, infinity and so on. But there is something strange instead for focusing at 0.45 meters it focuses may be at half of that distance or less, so to to some extend it bevies behaves like a macro/close focus lens Can someone please explain what is going on ? I definitely do not mind but I am just very curious Sample photo attached shot into the mirror Sincerely Eugene
  23. As spring rolls around and hearts turns to flowers, I'm hoping to get back to macro with my Q. I have to admit that I've rarely used add-on flash (my Fuji x100 has built-in), so I'm blissfully unaware of the complications. I know that some enjoy this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1030212-REG/canon_9389b002_mr_14ex_ii_macro_ring.html?sts=pi But it's quite expensive and wondering if less expensive versions will work also, such as below. And, what exactly do I mean by "work"? Thanks so much. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1125848-REG/yongnuo_yn_14ex_c_ttl_led_macro_ring.html?
