  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. Hello Forum members, I am hoping to get some information about the Leitz BELUN 1:1 copy stand for the Leitz Elmar 5 cm lens in combination with a macro-tube. The BELUN set that I just received contains the three rods imprinted "ELMAR" and a macro (extension) tube imprinted "ELMAR SUMMAR 1:1". I have seen photos of similar setups a couple of times online so I thought it should work for 1:1 reproduction (I want to digitize film using a SONY A7"). Testing the setup yesterday with my SONY A7 + KF Concept E - M-mount adapter + M-mount - LTM adapter + BELUN macro tube + Elmar 5cm lens + 3-leg c
  3. Hello, I just sold my Nikon gear and hopefully I will get my M10 next week. I also ordered the 50mm Summilux and for the lower range the 28mm Summilux. Since I am not familiar with the product range (yet), I am looking for something at the upper range. Yesterday I found a 90mm (Elmar ?) macro for which you need to purchase a macro adapter. Is this a good lens for macro shots since the adapter has a 1:2 magnifying factor or are there other, better lenses for that purpose on the market ? Thank you very much for your replies. Greetings, Jurgen
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  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
  7. Even in paradise, there can still be a "fly in the ointment". Leica S (006) with 120mm Apo-macro Summarit S
  8. 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 Cr

  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. Mein Aufbau: Leica T Noctilux Objektiv M Adapter Macro Adapter Novoflex Profi Tischstativ Novoflex Kugelkopf Naheinstellgrenze normal bei dem Noctilux Objektiv: 100 cm Naheinstellgrenze mit dem Macro-Adapter und Nocti: nur 8,5 cm !!! Das Bildfeld ist 4x6 cm. Fazit: Es hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt den mit 580 Euro teuren Macro-Adapter gekauft zu haben. So kann ich aus jedem M-Objektiv ein Macro-Objektiv machen.
  15. 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
  16. Hi guys, Could I ask for your experience for a moment? I'm thinking about an equipment acquisition (not an S3 unfortunately!) to help me solve a problem and do some better work. I've been getting a few jobs photographing small accessories recently -- pin badges / lapel badges, shiny little things like that -- and am finding the otherwise excellent APO MACRO SUMMARIT 120/2.5 often won't get me as close as I'd like. My customer was happy with my work, regardless, and more is coming down the pipeline. I can deliver what I need to do with the native 120 and cropping, or setting up differ
  17. 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.
  18. I'd like to use an 1:1 adapter for the macro-elmarit-R 60mm lens. I see that the adapter originally made for the lens was Leica product code no. 14198 and was later replaced by a newer adapter, product code 14256. is there any real benefit of one versus the other? I assume that the sizes must be nearly the same. Thanks!
  19. 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
  20. 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_ma
  21. Here is a short clip I made using Leica M with Leica 60mm Macro-Elmarit-R. Edited using Final Cut Pro X Thanks
  22. Dear all, We have put an order on the XT1. Anyone who is using Leica R lenses on Fuji cameras? Any good reviews and / or user shots out there? We are particularly interested in Macro lenses as the 100/4. Best, Corrado & Rina
  23. Hi Id appreciate any advice regarding fitting these rings (2 parts plus spacer) from the Leicaflex era to a 280 f4. The extension tubes fit any of my lenses with the shiny cam 1 (single, twin or triple) eg my 50 summicron, 60 macro 100 AME but not my R cam 280, or rom 28-90. Realistically Im not needing to keep it original for my Leicaflex (and seldom shoot film these days) so is there an easy modification to allow compatibility? Thanks in advance, Brandon
  24. Hey I am hoping someone knows what this Leica product is called. Thanks
