Macro testing

Macro testing using the Pentax 645D a 67 100mm macro and extension tubes

I thought I would test just how close I could focus when using the 100mm macro lens from my Pentax 67 camera on the 645D. I first took some photographs of a steel ruler (as shown above) then moved on to the lego man (naval officer?).

First 645D body, 67 to 645 adapter, and 100mm macro lens.

645D body, 67 to 645 adapter, and 100mm macro lens

Then add the 1:1 adapter to the front of the lens (This comes with the 100mm macro lens)

And then add extension tubes 1+2+3

It should be noted that these are the full size images and not crops. If you use the macro lens with the 1:1 adapter, and extension tubes you can focus so that an object 19mm in width will fill the frame. Of course you could then crop the image further. This is a crop at 100% from the above shot.

This leads me to ask the assorted creepy crawlies on Okinawa…

“Are you ready for your close-up?”
