One Week Macro

by Kay~Kacey on 2/19/2009

Well, I finished up my one week rental of a Canon 100mm macro.

I took a ton of photos, but I’m still not feeling the love. Still like The Photography One’s 60mm less expensive macro better.

It would have helped if we would have had some nice sunny days so I could have lowered the ISO a bit. I found I got a bit of noise on these photos.

Or maybe it was that my subjects were boring. :mrgreen:

Anyway, I’m glad I rented it, because it’s no longer on my must have, must get list. Well, I still want a macro, but might get the 60mm one. Even though it only fits on Canan crop factor cameras and I’m sure our next one will be full frame. (this is where you can go la-la-la-la and quit listening.) Anyway, it was easy peasy to rent from Ziplens. So I’d suggest using them if you want to try out a new lens.

Why, yes, that is a bit of pink milk glass you see peaking out of those flowers. Hope SuperGuy doesn’t see it. Not sure he knows I snagged this vase yet…

I want a macro lens, too. But I need to learn how to use the regular one first! I like the noise sometimes. It gives it an ethereal look.

Do any you use a noise removal program like noiseware or some other one?

A little macro is better than no macro! :mrgreen:

Glad you had a chance to try before you buy.

(LOVE the pink milk glass!)

Hey, I guess I didn’t know you were renting the macro. That’s pretty cool. Thanks for the tip! :cool2:
