Powershot SX 50 HS: Ants Macro
I tried out the camera with Raynox DCR 250 close-up lens and I really like the results I get with it. Ant's length: 2,5mm
I used an external flash to light the scene. The picture was shot at 300mm.
Nicely done with terrific detail! I have an old Canon 58mm D250 closeup lens that I have been playing with on my SX50 but can't get as close (so far) as you did with your ant photo. Here is the inside of a tulip with the D250 and lit with a Sunpak DSLR67 LED macro ring light. The thing I like about the ring light is it stays on so I can see what I'm getting as apposed to the flash but it is only good from about 2-20 inches.
Both very impressive macro shots, and good to get the different ways you got there!
Nice focus and detail. Well done.
Really like the symmetry of the picture as well as the your ability to get so close to living creatures. I'm jealous, because in the cold of winter here we don't even get to see ants to take pictures of.
Thanks for posting,
When I opened your post, that image immediately caught my eye. Love both the color and composition. Very nice.
really like your shot. You should try a real flash diffused by a softbox or umbrella. I use the yungnuo yn 560 remotely triggered by internal flash.
I already had some bridge cameras (fz150, hs30exr) but the canon has superior image quality.
