Macro Mushrooming With Sony

This article originally appeared on the blog fiberstrobe, and is used with permission.

On a sunny day and I went to the woods to hunt some mushrooms, lit with warm afternoon lights. I took my Sigma 15mm 1:2.8 EX fisheye lens on the NEX-5 with me. The twin-flash adapter with soft box served as additional light source.

Sigma: The wait is over. Shop e-mount primes.

The Sony Fisheye Adapter on the 16mm lens is quite acceptable but far from perfect. Optically the Sigma is far better lens, but it’s designed for full-frame cameras, so it’s not that wide on the APS-C NEX-5.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
