Macro / Re: Canon 100mm IS USM L Macro Photos
« on: August 15, 2013, 02:00:09 AM »
Thinking of getting a canon extension tube to use with the 100 2.8....is it worth it?  Does anyone here use extension tubes on there 100?

Thanks
North
I got the 25mm from canon first and two months back I got the Kenko set too. Have not shot extensively with them but I did not find too much difference in the feel. They both use the same air though ;)

Nice, maybe I should try with my 1200/5.6.
;D
Let us know when you take a picture of ... Jupiter  ;D

First shot it didn't fit the screen completely so I had to step back couple feet.
Ha ha ha!

Just a reminder that the Canon teleconverters will not work with the macro lenses.

The 100mm macro may not work with a Canon teleconverter, but the 180mm macro does.
If you add a 12mm macro extension tube it will work.

So this morning (close to noonish) a Crow Pheasant came visiting our garden. I stalked him and he did not seem too bothered about it although he would keep something between us - a bush or even a leaf. Here are three pictures. Not too good, but they'll do.

The first was shot without flash ISO 25600, 1/1000th, f8 I thought quite usable though you can see noise when you blow it up - but that is expected of ISO 25600...

The second one is shot with flash so ISO 400, 1/200, f8. The classic "No pictures darling" as he/she races across :)

The third one also with flash,  ISO 400, 1/200, f8. Apparently even the late birds get the worm!

All taken with 5D3, 100-400L. The flash is 600EX-RT.

This little guy was just too cute: 6D 300 F2.8 II X2 III 4000th  F6.3  ISO 4000.  I should have pulled my shutter speed back down but forgot - duh.

Lovely one Jack. That bird has one hell of a straw :)

Like Serendipity said - I wish we had humming birds here in Pune too... But I got shots of a Crow Pheasant today - posting it on the Birds page...

For you...an unedited "proof" of a lacrosse game shot in the evening with poor light...NO EDITING done other than a crop.  Shot Jpeg

The 450 certainly couldn't produce an image like this at iso 3200 in poor light at 12fps...NO other camera could except maybe the D4.
1dx
300 2.8

F2.8
ISO 3200
1/640
I wish I had 6K US$ to spare :)
So looking at the picture, can one do that in the game and not be fouled? That looks aggressive...


yes...there's quite a bit of contact in lacrosse.  fun sport, growing quite quickly here in the US.
Wow! Like field hockey, if the opponent got to your "wrong" side, you could hit the chap with your hockey stick and claim you "missed" the ball... Personal experience - on the receiving side...

but if it's as simple as opening the lens and tightening a few screws
Sean, It is never "simple". Like the rest said, send it to an authorized service center.

but it did made skin look great.
I hope you have insurance that covers "stuff"...

...I also thought that the price of $2k was a mistype of $12K. I hope it is.
Where the beep am I going to get $12K from? OK, don't answer that!  >:( ;)

200-400mm f/4 for around $2K.  Wake up, please, or stop whatever pharmaceutical regimen you're on.
And I was going to say that there should have been a third option - "It depends... (18% Grey)" but then, there were these two reality check posts! So. Well, dreamers make reality happen. The world has had so many naysayers. And there are the Wright brothers. Not just the ones who got a "heavier than air" contraption to fly. So 200-400L IS V @ under US$ 2,000? And that is not written in the European numerical format! Well, very possible.

:) The rains have abated and the birds are out! And yes, not another Hawk picture from me. That chap seems to have ditched me. Never mind, there are may more fish in the sea or birds in the air!

So here are a couple of Hornbills - one adult and a juvenile and the parent has got a delicious treat! They come to this tree next to my house to feast on the caterpillars there!
