XH-A1 + 72mm Achromat (Macro)

A few pics using the bare XH-A1 with and without our new 72mm HD achromat. In other words, using the achromat as a macro filter. Note the blue/yellow fringing from the XH-A1 that simply drives me crazy. What is great is that you can see how clean the achromat is, in spite of that. Closest distance to target using the bare cam was about 50mm...with the macro, 20mm. I don't own a macro stand so these shots were done with the stamps set up in front of the cam on coreplast. DOF is super shallow shooting like this so not having the targets perfectly square to the camera was a bit of a challenge.

Dennis,
That is very impressive. Do you have a link to this achromat on the web? I want to get macro footage of insects and would like to check this out.

Larry, all of our insects are rather frozen right now, otherwise I'd post up a few pics using them as more interesting models. The 72mm achromat is custom made for us for use with the Brevis adapter..as such, it's the only 72mm of that power/quality available anywhere. You'll find them at cinevate.com

Cheers :-)
