Is a petal lens hood just for photographing flowers or can it be used for other types of plant photography?

I use them to photograph plants like robins.

You can also take pictures of a Corolla :) without putting any Stigma in the question :)

You can use it to pose the lens on when photographing it for "sale" adverts. :rolleyes:

A follow up question, are bellows lens hoods so rare nowadays because there's so few real blacksmith's left?

They were first used to take portraits of the flower pot men so maybe they can be used for other purposes.

When bellows hoods get old and fall apart they "suck"... ;)

Hand-held can lead to shaky close-ups.

They're not rare. I see bellowing hoods outside most pubs on Saturday night. But you'd need some tweaking to use them on lenses.

Is an eyeCup a third party accessory for attaching an iPad to the rear of the camera to give you a bigger screen.

I could have gone ruder, a box (as in cricketers) is called a cup over here.

Now would that be known as an I box or X box?

A tripod is a special kind of pea.

I thought a tripod was a group of three dolphins or whales.

Edit.

You learn something new everyday. Apparently a tripod is also a group of three hippopotami.

A copy of the manual in available in-camera but can be viewed only in Auto Mode.

What did the Leica screw body say to the Pentax screw body?









Mine's smaller than yours.




Then the T2 mount lens piped up. I'm to thick for the Leica and to short for the Pentax.

Being banished to the other side of the pond for eating pancakes for breakfast, is a bit harsh, even by my standards... :D
