Merrill for macros?
Sep 4, 2014

Hi all,

I can't seem to shake this foveon fever. Has anyone used a merrill (DP3M, I'm guessing) for macro work? I'm not looking to do true 1:1, but close focusing would certainly help.

As much as the Merrill isn't the ideal "all around" camera, my workflow and shooting style is pretty deliberate, so I don't see the merrill's liabilities as something that would kill my creativity (I do a lot of landscape + tripod and don't need ridiculous fps).

Does anyone have 'macroesque' shots or experiences they'd like to share?
