I have cropped and resized almost all of these pics so that they fit nicely onto this post. To get a good idea of how powerful the magnification is with this lens, first lets see the wheel on the top of the lighter:
And now the centre of the same photo, just cropped, not resized:
And the tip of my ballpoint pen:
A single character from one of our gas bills:
The pins on an RJ45 connector:
And a close-up of the same connector’s pins:
The individual pixels and RGB colours on my Compaq laptop’s screen:
And the pixels on my friend’s Mac. I think it’s interesting to note here that the pixels on the Compaq have a taper on the bottom left, but on the Mac they are on the bottom right!
The pins on a stick of DDR400 RAM:
The bottom right corner of a VGA socket on my laptop:
And the headphones socket on the same laptop:
A grain of coffee:
The Seeds on a piece of grass from the garden:
Part of the swirl on my finger print:
The iris of my eye (I was quite surprised at how crazy this looked!):
A guitar string wrapped around the peg of the machine head:
And a small cropping from the same photo:
More guitar strings:
And a string on the fretboard:
The tip of a key:
One millimeter markers:
Here’s a shot of my white tshirt with the light from a torch shining through from the back:
And my bed sheet:
A one penny coin:
Another penny shot:
And this is the front-most part of the crown of the Queen on a penny:
And that’s it for now. Let me know what you think and if you can think of any other household objects that may be interesting for me to photography and display here. If you would like to use any of the images shown here, just let me know and I’ll probably quite happily email you the full resolution images. I hope you’ve enjoyed my little venture into DIY macro photography, and if you haven’t already, check out my post on how I managed to take all these with my Nokia N95’s camera.
