  • I bought the Timack RF-600D ring light for 31 USD on Amazon.com. It comes with a bunch of adapters for all thread sizes. It can operate in different modes: flash, continuous, right or left. Its ...
  • I got the Oshiro 60mm macro f2.8 on my Canon EOS M5. For 179 USD it does a very decent job, even does 2x mag on the macro. It can focus at infinity too but I use it for macro 95% of the time. I got...

  • Here's an interactive map with essential info for Aug 21 2017. I don't know how the guy did it but it is beyond awesome, a real...

  • Diffraction's effects can be largely eliminated. See: https://jonrista.com/2013/03/24/the-diffraction-myth/

  • I have been using the Oshiro 60mm 1:2 macro for about a week. It is a big lens but works as advertised. I could find no flaws in it or in its performance. It took me awhile to get the hang of it ...
  • I bought the Timack RF-600D led bundle on Amazon.com and am quite happy with it. It would work on your 100mm macro lens for the 60D. Marco Nero, a frequent contributor here on DPR,  has the 28mm ...
  • Bingo. Thank you very much. :-)
  • The Oshiro 60mm macro f2.8 lens arrived an hour ago, I put it on the M5, first with a Fotodiox adapter and found that the camera refused to shoot in any of the modes on the dial. So, I thought ...
  • I think you got a lemon. I hope it is anyway.  I'd do a return or exchange right away.  My order is due to arrive on Monday. I will mos def give the lens a good examination and a trial right way. ...
  • Waterpillar is very artistic. My fave. This is where I want to go in macro ultimately. My Oshiro macro lens is in the mail. The neat thing about macro is that there are dozens of photos to take ...
  • Holy Moly, those are great shots. He found the sweet spot of the lens/camera and extracted optimal definition of the objects.  Thanks for the link,
  • Sharpness is on par with my nikkors 35mm 1.8G and 40mm 2.8 micro and is comstant from 2.8 to 22. It's a bit tricky to focus handheld at f16 of f22 if light conditions arent perfect but with a ...
  • I got the Lexar card as a freebie. I had always used Sandisk in my Canon G15, and it gave me a problem only once over a four year period. Thanks for the info on recovery software. I don't recall ...
  • Replied in tiny jpg
    That's a good idea, the sort on file size, wrt weeding out the tiny jpg's. I will use it. I let it run to EOJ. Took about a day. My computer is no slouch either. 16 gigs of game memory and a 4th ...
  • I noticed that the one I am using at the moment seems to be generating bogus text files and tiny jpg (160 x 120) versions of the original jpg's. So, I will have to go through and delete a lot of ...
  • I don't think that was an option. Anyway, the pictures I wanted are all jpg's. I've been shooting jpg (Large File) as of late. So, I think the program will do the job. Does Recuva have the "all ...
  • Replied in Need advice
    If light permits, stopping down to f11 or f16 can increase apparent DOF (fool the eye).
  • Replied in Try this.
    Recuva looks good. Thanks. The one from cgsecurity is running. It immedialely recognized the crippled Lexar card and it has been grinding away since then. It is recovering the jpg's and mov's but ...
  • Thanks, I will check it out. The program I found at cgsecurity.org is running now. It seems to be working as it does give a realtime progress report and it looks good. After it finishes up in ...
  • Embie, Thanks for the first constructive reply. I found an open source free program. It is at cgsecurity.org There are two components to the recovery program, testdisc and photorec.  The program ...
