Don't think I have managed to get a single macro shot that good. Always focus issues or something I do wrong

How much is that cropped?

I am not using any AF here but set AF to 90% of min distance, get close to object and adjust via MF.

This is no crop  but 100% image with automatic tone and WG control in LR4.4

Re: NX300 & 60mm Macro shots

and some more little spiders, cropped to 12-14Mpix from 1:1 for better image proportions

a 10Mpix crop at 1:1 close distance but not 100% accurate focus (as this one is way too small)

I don't find that this is close enough.

For macro, you should be able to get in at 1:1 or better.

????

This is due to the cropping a 2:1 magnification !!!!

The original 20Mpix was at closest distance so that the crop gets you to 2:1. This Spider was so smal you could hardly see any detail with your eyes......;-)

we call that scorpion fly (not sure if that translate that way into English

they are LR4.4 processed RAWs with some small degree of Luminance noise (Slider=10) reduction applied and sharping at UMASK 90+% and oversharpend slightly at slider=40

EDIT: basically I am working the same way as Eric did (potentially more UMASK oversharpening the edges but lighter de-noise)

I like them a lot. Thanks so much for sharing. Starting to see some wonderful real world examples of what the NX300 will do with various lenses and settings.

Re: NX300 & 60mm Macro shots

I try not to be "distracted", as you say, but of course, when there are bad issues like raw continuous shooting limitation on nx300, which is lower than older models, the distraction comes.

Fortunately, that's an issue affecting just some kind of shooting, and I still can enjoy the camera for other things, where speed is not necessary.

Still, differently from you, I hope that Samsung can address the problems, so I prefer to point them out and make them public.

I appreciate the spiders being tiny, and enjoyed looking at the little creatures. You appear to be having fun with the NX300, keep it up, and, keep shareing them with us.

Have a good day.

yes, of course, I found the post you were referring to just now, along with other posts + pics.

I replied to the very first post with the two flies.  thanks for alerting me that there were more pictures throughout the thread.  some are very nice!

and I agree, it looks like you're having lots of fun!  makes me want to buy a 60mm too.
