760D First Macro Shots

Had a brief outing on Sunday with my new Canon 760D camera body at Dunyeats Heath Nature Reserve.   I did not take many shots as I also used my Canon 300mm F4 L to shot the active dragonflies further out on a nice warm afternoon.

This shot of a resting Common Darter dragonfly is encouraging – as I used ISO 800 on it in Natural Light.  The noise handling seems much better than the old 650D.

This next one is at ISO 200 with 270ex Flash and front mounted diffuser.  At full 1:1 – good detail being present.  Another plus.

Finally a shot with the MPE-65  (270ex flash again) of just a fly at about 3x mag.  Again detail is fine.

I’ve been taking macro photography from 2004.

I use both Canon film and digital cameras.
