    AccentAE86,

    Incredible shots!!

    Would you mind posting a link to the macro filter you used (or similar) ones?

    How many mm is the filter you used on your setup?

    Thanks.
    Sorry, I don't have a link. I actually bought this filter back in 2001 for a totally crappy HP digital camera. In any case, it is a Tiffen filter, the thread size is 38mm, but I don't think you'll find any in that size. Probably 52mm or around there at the smallest. The higher the closeup rating, the better the magnification. This filter says +18 but I don't think it corresponds to the numbers you see on the filters nowadays.

    Anyhow, you can also get a closeup filter on many of those cheap wide angle lens adapters that would do the same thing:

    All the following were taken with my Lumia 920 (pre-Amber).

    All the following photos were Macro shots but none were taken with any sort of lens or special lighting, except for the single round cut diamond, of which I used a 'Diamond Loupe' in order to get a magnified and sharper picture of the diamond.

    The cake pictures were taken with normal/ceiling lighting but I placed white paper behind them and played around with the exposure and ISO settings.

    While they aren't as sharp as the 1020 photos, do not underestimate your 920's capabilities; with the right equipment and lighting, I'm certain

    ^ those are not macro shots. They are close-up shots. and I think a 920 post should belong to a 920 thread.

    Cheers.

    Could you not, in essence also use a real ND filter (using rubber bands to tie to phone or something) to take similar shots as the 808 did?

    That looks amazing! Could you tell me where can I buy those two objetives, or at least their names? How do you fix it to the 1020?

    The ND filter won't do anything to change the photo. It would only lengthen the shutter open time, or increase the ISO. Since I was working well within the technical boundaries of the camera, there was no need for an ND filter. Now, if I wanted to get a slower shutter speed to emphasize motion, then yes, an ND filter could help. But it would have done nothing in this case. I use ND filters all the time in my pro work to bring my shutter speed down to flash-safe sync speeds.

    Thanks, glad you enjoy the photos! Hopefully more to come. I do plan to try it in my studio, though it has already been done, I still want to try it out myself.

    Witch scotch tape. Just like this



    You don't want to put that whole wide angle setup on your lens for macro. You want to unscrew the macro part and use only that piece.

    OP here again.

    Tried taking advantage of the super high shutter speed of the Lumia 1020. The fastest I've been able to get is 1/16800 which is awesome. The fastest DSLR is 1/8000 which isn't quite fast enough for high speed photography. Normally, you need to use a short duration flash with an acoustic trigger wired in to simulate shutter speeds above 1/8000. Which is a super PITA. But the fast shutter speed of the 1020 just barely breaks into the high speed zone. Faster would be better, but 1/16800 is nothing to sneeze at. So I tried taking a couple shots of water splashes using only a LED flashlight as as light source.

    Again, I ran into some problems with such shallow Depth of Field at maximum magnification, but overall I had fun with it. This time I didn't use the macro filter, just the MFD and zoom of the 1020.

    Awesome shots!! Really, really cool stuff.

    This is a shameless self plug but, have you tried ProShot? It's has an MF assist mode that makes nailing focus really easy. Would love to hear some input from a professional photographer! :)

    Bumping this useful thread to show my kit and some macros I took. No post-production of the photos, taken in mediocre light on my kitchen table. These are taken with the 10x and 4x stacked.
