I recently got through a new lens: The Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro (Not the more expensive 'L' version)
Being a sunny day, I thought I'd take to the garden in the park outside where I live, to try and shoot some macro video.
So far, I'm blown away with the lens! It's razor sharp when in focus (keeping focus is tricky on a moving subject when shooting macro!) And the lens does full 1:1 ration macro, so being able to get so close to subjects was a lot of fun.
Some shots in the above video are better than others. I shot everything at 50fps / 1080p (half speed slow motion) and I made the mistake of shooting at a shutter speed of 50, making for some strange artefacts. I neglected than when shooting at 50fps, 100/sec should be the minimum shutter speed.
Also, the shots out the camera were pretty jerky, so I applied the Warp Stabilizer effect in post, and it's pretty noticeable in some shots.
Really enjoyed shooting this, and love to see the potential of this lens. Was a good learning experience too! Watch until the end and you'll even see some explicit dragonfly-on-dragonfly action!
