More images: - using Olympus E400 Having used OM2n's for years and still a fan as far as film is concerned - ideal for my scientific and natural history photography, I am now also using an E400. Having loads of expensive lenses for the OM's, I obtained a simple OM / Olympus 4 thirds adaptor from ebay in order to use the OM lenses. The series of images taken show what can be achieved without a lot of work. The only difficulty is in using the lenses at high f numbers as the adaptor closes the lens and so makes it difficult to see the subject in low light as the lens is shut down. Opening the lens, focusing then shutting it down to f22 at the moment of firing the E400 works. The E400 was set at ISO 100, the pop-up flash set to on and the main setting set to Aperture priority. Still playing with the flash light guide setup which also works with a microscope if the camera is mounted, using the ebay adaptor, to one side on a trinoculular head. The light-guide was bent using heat to point the flash at the object. No images using this are given here yet but will be later.
Any one interested in seeing the light-guide system let me know.
As a scientist I published a number of papers, reviews and letters and continue to do so. Arachnology is the main theme of the titles. In addition I have edited, designed and facilitated the production of a number of books as part of my position at the Booth Museum of Natural History Brighton.
See the whale skull dredged up off Brighton in September. It is from a Fin Whale and is now on display at the Booth Museum of Natural History, Brighton, BN1 5AA UK. Any comments on this please send to: [email protected]
