What Camera do you use for taking CP photos?

Recommended Posts

Pentax Optio SVi. In addition to the S5 models it has both time and aperture priority, as well as some other manual functions.


I now rarely use my analog SLR (Pentax MZ5n -that of course makes better photos) since taking pics became so easy with a digicam.

Just out of interest, what flower is that?

I use a Nikon D80 with a 105mm Macro lens with VR and an SB-600 flash gun. When all together its around 1.6kg's of camera equipment to hold when trying to take photos of little tiny things.


If I find a 100% crop, ill show you. Above shot is not, its a small image of the full sized one. If you wish to see the full sized image, click here.. Drosera Image. Then click on the 'All sizes' button and click on the orginal link. It will then load up the orginal image which is around 4 meg or so. Not the best shot to show, but it will do. :)

To use your macro facility well, make sure you have a tripod or stable service in which to put the camera on.

A decent amount of lighting and using the 2second timer to reduce shake would also be recommended :)


Thanks for the advice Joel, it's got an optical image stabiliser, will see if a tripod is still necessary. :)

Sadly that means nothing in the macro world lol, though will improve any 'normal' shots you will be taking.

I'm a total noobie, as you have noticed. Can you imagine, this is my very first camera, ever!
