an interesting macro lens


jp95

Recommended Posts

Hello,

for Christmas I had a gift, a special macro lens, the LAOWA 25mm
which allows a magnification of x2,5 to x5
This is a really interesting lens, which allows you to make spectacular macro shots.
It is totally manual, completely unsuited, i believe, to make pictures outside but in the studio,
it is really convenient and cheap considering his possibilities.

Here are some test photos I made a few days ago:
they are made with the technique of stacking and mounted with the software "Zerene stacker"
and then it is necessary to do some correction with Photoshop

Hi,

 

thank you very much for these unbelievable photos, it´s a big joy to look at them! I have never seen such extreme Drosera macro shots, even single plant cells are visible without problems. Really good work!!! Maybe you will find some time to do this for other genera as well ?

 

Thanks, Maik

Hi,

these are really very impressive and beautiful pictures and the price is not that high for such a macro lens. Thanks a lot for the great tip. I think I will visit my favorite Photoshop in the next days to take a look at it.
Can you tell us what the rest of your photo equipment looks like?

Drosera hygarensis? Is it possible you meant D. yilgarensis?

Cheers

 

Lutz

... @jp95 is this a manually lens or does it support autofocus and closing aperture?

 

I want to mount it at a Fujifilm X-h1 body with a Nikon adapter.

HI BT

 

This lens is completely manual, the focus and the choise of the aperture

if you have a nikon adapter for lens i think it will work.

You must know an important thing, it's that with this lens you can only make picture of veey small subjects the max size is 3 ou 4 mm

It is very interesting for making technical picture.

Thank you so much for the Information. It is the second application. I want to make pictures from metallic surfaces.

... yesterdays pics had been made with a focal length of 2,5.

Today I tried the focal length 5.

 

Drosera pygmea is really small, but not with this type of lens (aperture 16, different positions of the flash).

This lens is really a powerful tool!
