20th Century History of Photography

Recommended Posts

And here's some of my very first macro pics taken using the FM3A, 35mm lens, 36mm extension tube, external flash, handheld:

 

Pics

 

This setup gave me roughly life-size magnification(1:1) but very little working distance(3cm or less!)

Go buy a FM2n or FM3A then... Just note that your D70 kit lense cannot be used on film bodies..

Warning: once you've handled the FM2N or FM3A, the plastic D70 body will feel cheapish by comparison! And then you'll want a dslr of the same build quality! lol.gif

Yes, the Nikkor 105mm AI(S) is a f2.5 lense.. Know an ex-owner of the lense.. He sold it to another person whom I know online.. LOL..

Coincidentally, both live within 5 min walk from my place. The former runs the Kodak minilab/ studio near my place and the person who bought the lense is also his customer.. LOL...

Hi! Firefox, I think I just bought some stuff some the one operating the colorlab. A friendly young man!
