Re: D3100: Macro mode

Thanks, I will check that. I also saw some Fotodiox rings at Amazon for $7.95.

If I do not have a wooden wedge what are my options to open the aperture once its closed?

i got this one:


I use it for reversing the 18-55 and an old 50mm AI-S. Note that if you are reversing an AF-S lens that does not have an aperture ring, the aperture closes down when you take the lens off the body, on my 18-55 i made a small wooden wedge that I stick into the aperture control tab to hold it wide open.
