"Amateur medical imaging"
Sat 15-Sep-12 12:38 AM by kenuck


Using a V1 for macro: A friend wanted pictures of her kidney stone before sending it in for analysis. I mounted the V1 + FT-1 to my old bellows + 50mm f/1.4 D lens. I had to put an extension tube in front of the bellows so that the "foot" on the FT-1 didn't hit the rails on the bellows. I found I couldn't just use extension tubes as the V1 gave an FEE error, even though the lens was set at f/16. Another option would be to use extension tubes and reverse the lens, but I couldn't find my reversing ring.



Depth of field is always a problem in cases like this...f/4 1/3 sec electronic shutter, remote trigger, un-cropped. Focus on nearest side, Levels and moderate sharpening



So I took 5 images focused across the depth of the kidney stone, then merged them in Helicon Focus. The stone was about 4 mm across and apparently very painful - it looks like cut glass!

Very interesting! And a great use of the V1 + macro. I've experimented with the V1 and my 105 macro but haven't had a lot of time to really try something special yet.

Cool project, very well done. Wish I still owned my bellows from 30-40 years ago.

an old duffer with the time to have fun,
Jim

Super interesting!

Yay V1 to the rescue. I just, finally, did some birding with mine and the FT-1 and it was a lot of fun.

Best regards, SteveK
