KenKo Diopters - test shots

I got a Kenko Dioptre kit +1 +2 and +3

Here's comparisons with maximum zoom at 150mm and closest focus distance, with the three filters added. F11 ISO 100 (Apologies for the blur on the inset - I knoced the camera and forgot to take another!)



And the same at 42mm F5.6 ISO 100



Work this week, but I'll try and grab some shots outside. Now, all I have to do is persuade some insects to stand still on some plant life emoticon - smile

More test shots

This one worked well.
F10 @70mm ISO 100.



I guess this was camera shake. A screw in a bicycle frame.
F10 @150mm ISO 100



This is a quick-release from a bicycle.
F10 @150mm ISO 100



Very shallow depth of field.
F10 @150mm ISO 100



Again, very shallow depth of field.
F10 @150mm ISO 100



At this close distance, the DOF is thin, and camera shake becomes a real problem. Still, for less than 30, it's an easy way to experiment!

I know a good tripod is important, but I don't have the money yet. I have my eyes on a really good one at about 200.

After the mirror flap, I could see the subject moving on a recent test shot of a dead insect. No clear results because of it. The camera was pointing down.
I have a question, though. Will I still get shake with a solid tripod with the lens at 150?

Thanks for looking.

Re: KenKo Diopters - test shots

Nice shots !

On the tripod: Manfrotto 190 should do, I have the 055 but it is used for larger camera's aswell.

For the movement of the camera/vibrations: try mirror-up, wait a couple of seconds and then make the shot.
I don't have an E400, so you will need your manual for camera settings for it.
I use Live View with my E410.

Happy experimenting !

Peter

I'll have to wait until my next body, next year, for mirror-lock.
It's my one bone of contention with Olympus and the E-400. It's on the E-410, so I'm annoyed they never updated the BIOS for even this simple function.

Thanks for the comments. I'm pleased with the results for such a low price
