Bet you haven't seen a Storm Trooper riding a Pachyderm yet today!
With the popularity of the new Lego movie, I thought I'd have a little fun with with the Macro setting on the Canon SX50 and a Lego Storm Trooper.
You probably knew the SX50 was known to be a great long lens ultrazoom camera, but you may not have known it does a decent job as a macro lens too.
Kind of a bonus really. Not only do you get an awesome, 1200mm lens on the SX50 (35mm equivalent), you get a decent macro lens too, all for a little over $300.00! Not bad if you ask me.
The SX50 is even pretty good in auto mode, or P mode if you prefer. Just turn the camera on, compose your shot, and shoot. Indeed, I actually shot the first few in this sequence that way. Kind of refreshing to just think entirely about your composition and not worry about camera settings. :-)
I processed all these in Adobe Lightroom 5.3 (Camera RAW 8.3). The black and white is a simple pull down to zero of the saturation slider. No fancy presets, just easy peasy.
If you're in the market for a long lens, you should check out the Canon SX50 Ultrazoom. I love mine, and as a bonus, it makes for a pretty decent macro lens too!
