New Lens!

April 26, 2009

My son had a photo shoot for a prom and needed a better lens so I bought a Nikkor 60mm macro lens.

Cool eh?

So, how good are the pics? Well, I’m glad you asked! Check these out!!

This is my monitor at the minimum focusing range:

My best Raven pic yet.

dsc_0330a

An immature Bald Eagle stretching his wings.

dsc_0350a

Same eagle, different pose.

I got my T-mount in the mail and now I can use CJ’s 600-1200mm lens.

dsc_0364

This is the peak you see when you look down our street. I know, a bit out of focus.

dsc_0365

This would be looking at the bottom part of the picture above it and zoomed in all the way. It’s hard to focus with the camera zoomed in because it shakes quite a bit at this level of zoom and the tri-pod is old and cheap which makes it wobble more.

dsc_0368

A new sign in our neighborhood.

dsc_0369

Same sign, just zoomed in all the way. Notice that you can see the texture much better!

Now lets look at them at full resolution quality and cropped to one letter:

Amazing, eh?
