Detach Lens with aperture fixed, for your reverse lens macro pleasures

December 29, 2008 at 9:54 pm | Posted in Photo, XYZ not T review | Leave a comment

this (probably) works on most/all film & digital SLR
if: {
its an electronic lens (manual lens you can control without a camera so this doesnt apply)
the camera has a DOF preview button
} end if πŸ™‚

1. with lens on camera select the aperture you’ll want to use
2. press DOF preview button and hold (aperture blades in the lens will close to the specified size)
3. remove the lens from camera while DOF prev button is being held, or remove the battery (it wont work if you switch the camera off because it will still signal the lens.)

(dont worry it probably wont damage your lens/Warning+Disclaimer: do it at your own risk and I aint responsible for your damaged lens or damaged camera πŸ˜€ ) …. anyway

yes this lens looks weird/is not normal, but i’ll detail it some other time πŸ™‚

reverse lens and enjoy the 0.05 mm greater depth of field for your macro shots.
