Pretty straight forward, what lens do you Nikon DSLR users use for your Marco Watch photos?
EDIT Ah! I finally woke up. You mean Macro.
And on a DX or FX sensor camera?
The difference is angle of view - which effects perspective. The other thing is the working distance you need or want.
For shots on my wrist or in my hand where I want short working distance on my DX sensor camera I choose to use the 40mm.
For "display" shots where I need more working room - "working room" is the distance from the end of the lens at any given magnification - for lighting control I use the 60mm. For really great working distance or to add more extension behind the lens a 105mm is what I like.
Nikon D4s/D810/Nikkor 85mm TiltShift....but mostly iPhone 7+.
I have the Nikon D5100 and use the lens 18-140, but I have to admit it's hard to take close-up and good pictures. (I am not that advanced in using the DSLR, just completed a course and slowly managing to shoot in the manual mode.) Maybe you could give me some tips on how to take better watch pics?
Lighting, not the camera is the secret to great watch pix. Learn how to use your camera but more than anything learn how to put a watch in great light.
Thanks a great tip. Thanks. I guess natural light, maybe by the window? I was thinking to buy a flash as well. Would that help?
105VR F/2.8 Micro Nikkor also sometimes with a TC-17II Teleconverter
camera D3200, lens 60 2.8G and 105 2.8G VR.
the 60 G give me better color. and for closeup foto's it's more easy to use.
all in all, i use 60G more than 105 2.8G VR
Just picked up a 105 VR f/2.8 for my D810 look forward to playing around with it over the coming days
This. Minus the teleconvertor. On a D300.
Lighting is the key though. Pick up 3 of those LED photo lights and some rechargable AAs. Fairly cheap on the Bay or Amazon.
Anyone have specific lens recommendations for a D90?
I use the 50mm macro on mine for macro shots, and add extension tubes as needed.
I use a ikon D7100 and a Nikon do 35mm 1.8
This lens is super sharp! And then I add extension tubes depending on what I' after.
Nikon 105mm f2.8 vr2 on d810
D300/105mm f2.8 but been lazy lately and iPhone 7 has taken over...
for crop body, 60 2.8G. very nice color, ability for close up photo's and 1:1 macro also. If you want something cheaper, then check 55 3.5 mikro (used)
first time i hear about 105mm f2.8 vr2. Are you sure about that?
I use a tokina 100mm f2.8 macro, occasionally with a raynox macro attachment, now that i've switched to a sony a7ii, i still use it with an adaptor. depending on what kind of shots i'm going for
Nikon D80 with a Sigma 24-70mm 1:2.8 EX DG for most shots.
Tube extension kit for macro shots.
Best in the morning, in indirect light. Practise, practise, practise!
