    Okay, thanks for calling me stupid. I grasp what you're saying perfectly. I did not think that was the case, but it does make logical sense. I had read or heard something at some point that I ...
  • You can't adjust aperture with a reverse ring. It is far from a perfect system, with newer lenses. The only reason I'd suggest it at all over extension tubes would be a significant price ...
  • Okay, fair enough. I'm not sure how much I'd trust something that cheap from a brand I've never heard of with so few reviews, but as long as the mount didn't break on it causing you to drop your ...

    Okay if you're correct, then I'm just mistaken. I know the difference between linear and proportional. I was under the impression that subject size changed more overall, not just proportionally at ...
  • I'm confused, do you want a camera that you can change lenses? If so, from Nikon, the smallest and lightest aps-c camera is going to be the D3500, but I'd recommend the Z50 over that, and it isn't ...
  • I'm not a Canon shooter, so that may make a difference, but the cheapest set of autofocus capable extension tubes I've ever seen is still over $60. I'm not sure where you got your prices, and, ...
  • I can't help but notice that you asked this two months ago and haven't responded to anyone who says it might be user error. Based on the video you posted, I'm assuming the camera was on a tripod. ...

    Maybe I'm just missing something really obvious, but here is my logic. Please explain to me how this logic is flawed if it is. If my first statement is correct, the second must also be correct. If ...
  • I'd second what the other responses have said, but I'll add that if you're mainly looking for a lens to hold you over until the Z-mount macro comes out, and you'd like something a little less ...
  • Looking at both photos you posted, I have a couple things I'd like to say. First, I'd like to address some people saying that experienced photographers shoot in manual only when they have to and ...
  • I have the Tokina 16-28 for my Nikon D800. Even on the 36mp sensor, I haven't noticed any issues with sharpness, however, a prime typically would be sharper than an equivalent zoom. I will second ...
  • Also, there's an even cheaper way to try out macro. You can get a reverse ring for under $10 that will allow you to mount your lens on your camera backwards. That's how I started in macro (I have ...
  • If you can't get the photos you want in a cramped space with the 18-55, you won't be able to with the 24mm. 18mm is a good bit wider that 24mm. If 18mm isn't wide enough, definitely go with the 10-18.

    I didn't do any math. I stated a fact. There is a much larger change in subject size, while positioned the same distance from the subject, at the lower focal length range. I couldn't find a ...
  • Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant the f-stop for the lenses you are considering buying. Since you have the 18-55, I'd try it at 18 and at 24. Based on which you find more useful, you can then see ...

    Lens mm is not linear to subject size. There is a much bigger difference at the lower end than at the longer end. There is a much larger difference between 16 and 20mm than between 200 and 204mm ...
  • At the same f-stop, at the same subject size, you're going to get a lot more depth of field with a wide angle lens than a telephoto. FoV is going to change as well, but DoF does change.
  • I have a couple questions before I can truly give you a recommendation. First would be price range. How inexpensive are we talking? Second, how old is your son? Also, what do you want you're son ...
  • A fast lens is going to be your best bet, but there are some other ways to do it. First, like you said, you can do it in Photoshop, but I'm not typically a fan of that. I think it usually looks ...
  • I would need a little more information. What type of camera do you have? What is the f-stop of each lens? As for the 10-18 vs 24 mm, 24mm isn't truly ultra wide. It is wide, but not ultra wide. ...
