Oh dear, and there was me thinking last week's puzzle picture was too easy. How wrong can I be? Once again I get to keep all the gold stars for myself. To put you out of your misery it was various parts of a measuring tape - easy when you know the answer.
I wonder how you will get on with the new puzzle picture
For this one I got round to using the 350D with bellows and Asahi Super Takumar 55mm lens. First time for quite a while. For some time I have puzzled over what to use to light macro subjects. In the past I have used a couple of home brew LED lamps but they were really too dim. A while ago I bought a 12V LED ring lamp (designed for car headlamp / side light use).
Yesterday I finally took it off the Round Tuit pile and tried it out, just holding it in place in front of the lens. The results were surprisingly good. I could see to focus easily, stop down the lens for the first time, and shutter speed was reasonable. That made my mind up to invest in an LED ring flash which I have just ordered. Not as powerful as a traditional ring flash, but one tenth of the price! Coupled with what I already have it should work reasonably well.
Back to today's Guess What. No prizes. Just for fun.
