Playing with the camera

So today Roy and I did some playing with the camera. Yesterday Roy came up with a plan how to take pictures of cards flying. Today we improved the idea by learning how to have the camera remotely activate the flash (nifty feature we didn't know about). Here are some results (after 2 hours of photos).

In the afternoon Roy decided to try for macro pictures. He mounted +4 and +2 diapters on the 50mm lens. The result was a lens with very little range of focus --- here are few attempts where the focus was done by moving the camera forward/backward until satisfactory solution.

Our conclusion is that we need a real macro lens....
