The Canon 10D and a Macro Lens

May 15, 2003 | Mark Goldstein | Canon EOS 10D | Comment | |

I haven’t really posted any samples yet showing what the original images files from the Canon 10D look like - I’ve been too busy using it to try and take photographs, instead of pictures of test charts/rulers/cats etc.




Yesterday I bought a macro lens, the Canon 100mm f/2.8 USM, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to show one of the first pictures that I’ve taken with it in various states. From left to right, the first photo is a resized version (500x333 pixels) of the original JPEG file, with levels adjustment and USM applied. The second is a 100%, non-altered crop from the original JPEG. The third is a 100% crop with levels adjustment and USM applied.




If you’re thinking of buying a 10D or a macro lens, it might give you an idea of what to expect. If you’re not thinking of buying either, you may just want to skip this post entirely and read about the Minolta Dimage S414 review instead.
