I was out yesterday to watch this soccer game; I decided to explore and do a bit of street photography. Some of the open fields there had LOADS and LOADS of spiders! Imagine the fear I had :sick:

The 3rd photo... now that's a great shot! Way to capture the moment!

There is a "reverse ring" that you can purchase that has the same filter thread size of your chosen lens to reverse. Think of it as a filter (without the glass) and on the other end, it mimics the end of lens mount that you can connect to the body.

You'd lose the autofocusing capabilities, etc.

@sir serdar, here is a video i posted here a while ago from from other post that shows my reverse lens set-up with water drops. sir chris is right, you go all manual like focusing and adjustring your aperture. all you can adjust through your dials are your shutter speed and ISO.

Thought of a devil. I wonder who was the one came out with this idea.

My questions
1- is this 18-55 and is it known to give good results with this kind of reverse install. I mean can you do it to all lenses or some of them. As for physics should it be wide or normal lens so that the opposite of wide becomes macro.
2-what happens ifyou do it on 105 mm macro lens does it give the tele efect.
3- Isn't the back side of the lens vulnerable agains dirt and dust, also it is harder to clean compared to front side. How do you deal that matter.
4- as final, as you are using the front side of the lens to install on the camera, can you use filter before mounting that special reversed coupling piece. I mean like tele cameras as the use of drop in filters at the lens

Hahaha as a result asking permission to suck your knowledge on the subject I dont know.

i love to share what i know sir serdar. as i am too still learning. as for your question here is my reply:
1. im using my 18-55mm because its the only lens i dont use since buying the camera. a kit that came along with it. i think yes, there are other adapter(reversing ring that can accommodate different filter size.
2. if your have the 105mm macro lens dont bother with this set-up. i still wish i have a true macro lens. easier.
3. yes it is vulnerable but there are also filters that you can buy for the other end of the reverse lens set-up. i dont use it. im careful :)
4. you can attach a extension tube to couple with your reverse lens but its an overkill wit the magnification already. and i dont know any set-up that have a filter between the camera and the reversing ring.

i hope this answer you question.

as an example:

this is taken at almost 18mm

December 01, 2011DSC_0028-Edit by mykevixen , on Flickr

and this is at 45-50mm i think(guessing :) )

December 26, 2011DSC_0047-Edit by mykevixen , on Flickr


you can see the magnification of the 18-55mm. other macro lens can only go up to 1:1. it is fun to use this lens because its very challenging. you have to know all your set-up before you shoot and all the photo i shared are non-crop and handheld.

My friend,
thank you for your valuable answer.

those photos are really good. Congratulations.

I believe they are better than a 105mm macro.

I asked what happens when reverse 105mm for not to try but understanding the physics of reversing.

As a result you have to use a wild-normal angle lens to give that macro effect when reversed,right.
