..... the cash last week and bought a couple of items for use with the Olympus OMD 10. The most expensive is the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye lens..... £200. produces pin sharp and colour rich images. The only drawback...... It's fully manual.......


Here's a few test shots........


.......... Concave effect.......


........ Convex effect...........


It was then off to the park for some further tests.......



Hit on to get the park keeper trimming the bowling green....


Took a few shots and couldn't resist a bit of blending fun.......


The second item I bought was a lens adapter enabling me to use a Sigma 50mm Canon fit macro lens on the OMD10.


Once again the only drawback is that the lens has to be operated manually.
I've had this lens for 12 years and never been let down. It produces some sharp images.


With the lens sitting on the adapter, the distance from the sensor is increased by about 15mm and therefor should increase the magnification factor, Ive no idea by how much. Below is a 1pence piece. Lens was set at 1:1......

Been a while since I’ve shared a blog or two. A few years ago I started to produce composite images, mainly of dried vegetables and locusts etc. I did dabble in more complicated stuff but lost interest. After looking though some of the old stuff I’ve...

Omega 3 fish oil capsules....

Good for the heart, also good to use as a subject through a macro lens. I liked the light and colour.

I don't see having to use the lenses manually a drawback, Dave...it may make you think more about what you're doing, which in these days of automation is no bad thing.
I can see you are going to have lots of fun with the fisheye!
