DP3M with Marumi and without

Just like on my last photo tour, I’ve had the DP3M and the Marumi +5 this time with me as well. Shooting macros with this little set-up is a lot of fun. With the achromatic lens on the DP3M you can achieve a max. image ratio of around 1:1.6. Compared to a DSLR with a ...


Additional shots taken with the DP3M and the Marumi +5

Over the last couple of days I’ve been carrying the DP3M with the Marumi +5 with me. Sadly the sun shone only for brief periods of time, making it hard to find insects and spiders.
