Here comes more of that supermacro shiznit.


Velcro.


Bedsheet.


Dust bunnies. (The next instalment will have something even more gross.)


The Nikon Coolpix 2200 I broke.


High strung.


Okay, so this is with smashpOp‘s old Panasonic FZ-5 at 432mm full zoom.


Infrared version of the first shot.


Wet head.


Whee! (Had to use the flesh-colored flash technique.)


None of these shots were cropped. This ruler shot is to show the scale of how small an area I could capture at full zoom (140mm equivalent).

According to this:

My Canon Powershot A520 sensor should be a bit wider than 5.3mm. 5.3:15 = 1:2.83 macro, technically, not impressive. However, a dSLR with 1.5x crop factor would have a sensor 36/1.5 = 24mm wide. 24:15 = 1.6:1 macro. So, to get 15mm to fill a dSLR frame would need a 1.6:1 macro lens.

    Nice, the velcro and last one are good.

    Yah the sensor on my cam is about that size, 23.6 x 15.8 mm CCD (DX format).

    The crop factor doesn’t effect the magnification though, don’t forget that, only the focal length.

    The working distance doesn’t change either unless you keep the final result constant, as in a full frame picture of something.
