More tilt photography

15 March 2019 - 03:24 AM

On Ebay l ordered a Canon M to M42 tilt adapter that allows infinity focus.Couldn't find a Canon M to Nikon tilt adapter, only M42. After 4 weeks the adapter arrived from China(why can't l find the cool gadgets on this side of the world?). Tilting to the left allowed me to get the cars in focus front to back at f/8. ln the last photo you can see the tiny 2mm brass extension tube that allows wide angles to focus a little closer. l made it when l was a machinist. The lens is a 28mm f/3.5.

These were taken at a pond near my apartment. The ones at Hermann Park will let you get very close to them, but not these. And the longest lens l have for the Canon M50 is the 55-250, so no closeups today.

Tilt photography

Tilt photography. l used the Canon EF-M to EF adapter, EF to Nikon adapter, Nikon to Nikon tilt adapter, and Nikon 85 1.8D. Since the tilt adapter provides extension, it's for close up work only.  l was able to get the whole subject in focus at f/8 by tilting the lens. l got the coins on Ebay. l prefer the USSR coins because they're older than the Russian Federation coins l have.

Yzesterday l went to see some of my relatives' graves at the cemetery. My relatives don't have fancy graves like some of these :)

$5 Mefoto cir polarizers at Adorama

l needed a 58mm slim polarizer for one of my Canon mirrorless lenses. Someone at DP Review posted this link. l got one for $38 instant savings making it $5usd. Took a few test shots with and without it tonight and did not notice degraded image quality with it on. l'm sure they're not multicoated, but in high flare situations l generally don't use a polarizer anyway. 62m is the largest size Adorama has. Too bad you can't get larger sizes because most DSLR lenses are 67mm or larger.
