First Macro Shots On the NEX 5N with 30 MM Macro
Picked up a new lens over Christmas this year, the Sony NEX 30MM F3.5 Macro lens.
Still getting the hang of it. The lens doesn't feature OSS (image stabilisation) so it can be tricky to get a blur free shot at very close range and need to work on a steady hand. Am also finding the F stop can have a huge impact on the focal point of the image and on a longer stop the blur is almost unmanageable just holding the camera and a very narrow focal point and loads of blur across the foreground and background.
Working with a Macro lens though, is a lot of fun, you can get some incredible detail in your photos if you can find the right subjects. Thanks to the high heat across the Sydney all the little creepy crawlies seem to be hanging around. Great test shots on the new Sony NEX 30MM Macro Lens.
