Defying gravity

insect macro

On Tuesday, I waxed eloquent, well enthusiastic at least, about my new toy, the Fuji X-E1, but there is one thing it can’t do: decent macros of the very smallest critters in my garden. There my DSLR and macro lens rule supreme. This is an immature capsid bug showing off its gravity defying skills on a lavender leaf.

  1. I can use my Nikon 55mm micro lens, with or without an extension tube on my Fuji X-E1 mounted via an adapter. In fact I hardly uses Fuji 35mm lens. I would suggest to get an adapter and use your dslr lenses.
    Happy shooting.

    • Thanks. I have a 5Diii and so I can’t really see the need to use the Fuji for macro: why put my 100mm f2.8 L macro lens on the Fuji when I can use it on the 5Diii? The Fuji is really all about street and travel for me.

  2. Lavender! I was going to jokingly ask if that was something tiny – like lavender – and, lo and behold, it is. Remarkable, Rachael, as usual. Sorry I’ve been away for a while, but I think I’m back again. It’s good to see you – you know I love your bug shots!
