Friends have been unboxing new appendanges for their new toys, their cameras. To the front, back, bottom etc. i got my BR 2A about a week ago, trying to find which lens it is most suitable to use with. Writings on the BR 2A with the 50 mm lens can be found in most forum.
I have this relative old 35-70mm from my 'biras' Redza. After trying a few shots, i just know that this the right lens for my new BR 2A. I am now on my way to Macro in style, a cheap way that dith will approve.
The best I can do with a 'free' Nikon 35-70 F3.3/4.5 AF with a BR 2A in reverse attachment. I wish I have a dedicated macro lens to have a better results.
It was taken late evening (notice the narrow DOF)
I added 2 pictures taken at my working place today. Actually it is not easy to take macro with the reverse lens. It has lots of limitations. With the 50mm lens the focal point is fixed and have to be set at infernity. One has to move forward and backward to focus. Surprisingly with 35-70 mm lens, manual focusing is able. The DOF is too narrow especially at 35 and 50. The aperture needs to be opened or the ISO increased to get the shutter speed fast especially in limited lighting.
The flower was lighted by late evening sun
With this 1 week experience, i think i should get a macro( ;) ) or invest on a remote shutter release with the camera set on a tripod which is cheaper, use an old flash gun whatever the made and fire manually.
