About focusing

For a modern photographer, it is vital to be able to get fast and accurate autofocus from the camera. In this post I will give my thoughts on how to work with autofocus for simple scenes using the optical viewfinder.

Depth of Field Preview

A bunch of two lenses for macro photography

There is an easy way to get the ability to take a macro shot – this is to use reversing rings. Reversible rings are also called wrap rings.

Reversible rings should not be confused with a reverse macroadapter. The reversing adapter allows you to install one lens backwards on the camera for macro photography. Reversible rings allow two lenses to be joined using their front thread.
