SX50 - A test and a question
7 months ago

Talking today about macro vs. macro zoom, I tried an empirical test with a rose in the shadow, striving as much as possible to get the same size. I let the camera to make the settings in P mode and here are the two SOOC images:

Macro

Zoom

I understand the difference in POW, the flower in the first image covering much of the neighboring leaves; the difference in color, because the light was clearly different, in the first image the camera partially shadowing the object (the second image color is closer to the "reality" of my eyes). All in all, I like more the second image, but I'm more impressed by the first.

As expected the aperture was larger for the first image. However, the DOF seems shallower in the second image. Why?

Thank you very much for taking time to answer me,

Augustin
