Camera needs more zoom
« on: November 07, 2016, 06:52:09 AM »
I bought a light box but I don't have a good SLR to take pics of my watch.

I used to have old school film Leicas - Leica M3 and M6, but I sold both of them. I think for this one I'll need a Nikon d3300 and a Macro Lens?







I must admit though, the LED lights at the front top can be annoying when taking pics due to the reflection. Maybe I should tape some see through paper.

Any help on this besides getting an SLR? These are Iphone 6 photos btw.

Thanks.

Adam

Using my lightbox and Nikon D30 with Kit 18-55mm lens. I have a 50mm f1.8 lens somewhere....

Anyways... not bad considering it's a 10 year old camera. This is before photoshop.

:D

LX7 Macro focus range is as close as 1cm, that should satisfy your needs

Leica Ms are awesome bro! I used to have a Leica M3 and M6. Sold em though. The Leica Q looks damn nice... Maybe one day I'll get it. For now living with my 10 year old Nikon D30 :D
