Friday at the Flicks - 2nd Bees on Sunflower

The previous post has a macro video taken with the Nikon Coolpix S9050. I had been looking around to see if there were any dedicated macro video camcorders when I thought - try the 50D now it is loaded with Magic Lantern which allows it to take video, even if only silent:

I fitted the Sigma 28-80mm macro lens and kept Magic Lantern to shooting 4:3 format. The first part of the video was taken as close as I could get. I still want to be able to get closer so will keep experimenting and looking. At the moment I am investigating the Raynox DCR-150 add on macro lens which seems to have good reviews. There are quite a few ideas for investigation on the UntamedScience website.


  1. This is good, much better.
    If you want to try reversing rings or all sorts of stuff SRB GRITTURN.
    I've had bits from them and they are quick and reasonably priced.

    1. An interesting variety of bits and pieces there.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
