|Every year this fellow stops over at our place for a short visit|
|same species, taken summer 2008 with a 7 MP Ricoh R6|
I originally posted this picture on my HX9V blog, but I think a copy belongs here.
I got a little jumping spider visiting me, so out with the HX5, super macro activated and snap - got him.
While checking the result, he wanted to have a look too. I called him Bart because of the spiky hair (now I have to find a Homer somewhere).
... and that is why I enjoy the little camera so much, always handy and a set of great features like in this case a 20 x magnifier.
|You can see Bart in his original size sitting on the edge of my screen and a picture of him in 10MP original size (cropped) on the the screen|
|on my 15" screen this is pretty much original size|
|and that it the original resolution from the Sony HX5 - image slightly sharpened|
This little guy is shorter as 2 segments of your little finger. Shot from 5 cm with 2.4x super macro and forced flash.
Image is original size, cropped, color and sharpness adjusted.
This was shot with a stretched out arm and 2.4x super macro, focus set to spot.
original size crop (1600x1600) color, gamma, saturation and sharpness adjusted.
All pictures taken at Super Macro (2.4 x zoom) and from 5 cm (2") distance with forced flash. Original size crops. Contrast, saturation and sharpness have been have been changed.
Just when I published this post, I got a visitor to check on my work. So I had to take another shot to share this with you. Also 2.4 x but not as close as the other pictures and the washed out screen (forced flash) was recovered with LightBox see my post here.
