Meike Extension Tube Set MK-F-AF3

One of the subjects I like to photograph are flowers, plants, mushrooms etc. but sometimes those things are very small, and the range of your standard lens or zoom is just not close enough.

Although Fujifilm Superia is not one of the standard film simulations on a Fujifilm camera, Fuji still has a “similar to” (as they say themselves) in their options, namely the Classic Negative.For some strange reason, Fujifilm Superia was not considered a film for “Professional” use.But after reading countless reviews, visiting chat rooms and forums, photoContinue reading “PictureFX Pro Fujifilm Superia 200”
