Ring flash, XT-2, 80mm Macro choices


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am a long time admirer of the Fuji X system, but have yet to buy a digital camera. I typically rent a system when needed and make do with my existing film cameras.

 

I now have a requirement for a good, weather resistant, digital system and projected rental costs are now more expensive than buying. I need to photograph items similar in detail and structure to coins, as close to 1.1 as possible and often in austere environments.

 

I love the XT-2 from the limited exposure I have had to it and clearly the 80mm macro seems ideal. I am struggling to find a good ring flash which will be rugged and permit me to adjust intensity between each side.

 

Does anyone have a suggestion please? Thanks, Jon

      When focus stacking an object one does not always know how many frames are required.
      I thought the best solution was to tether the camera with my laptop and Capture One, take a certain number of frames, say 20, review the last frame on my laptop and if required add another 20 frames until the desired depth of field is reached. Unfortunately as i found out, after the first set of frames the camera resets the focus point to the first frame. That means the following additional sets all have the same focus starting point.
      Is there a way around it? It is quite annoying if you take 100 frames or more and notice afterwards that you need some additional ones and have to start all over again. it is a waste of time.
      Has nobody a suggestion?

      I recently picked up the x-t30 after finding the Sony X100 Mark 7 point and shoot was a bit soft.  I don’t know much about photography, but I love taking pics of flowers, family, pets, and travel.  I realized that my x-t30 refused to take macros, so I got the mcex-16 to aid in that.  I tried auto, manual, everything under the sun (I think), to try and take pics of my new African violet blooms.  But my camera simply won’t budge when I press down on the shutter button.  What am I doing wrong?  Or is the Mcex-16 broken (it did come in a banged up box)?  Also, I’m pairing it with a 18-55mm Fujinon lens, which several people were doing in the reviews for the extension.
