    Are these with a tripod? the beads seems rather noisy. I have a 5r and the 50mm 3.5 Minolta macro, I think it goes better than that. (not trying to sound rude or anything)

    Ya, all handheld with natural light. Really should have used a tripod and a separate light source, but I was trying to see what I could get.

    Looks good.

    Not to worry Dave...I know how hard it is to get those shots.
    All mine are hand held too...I don't even have a tripod. :D

    If I were doing alot of shots like this I would do it properly with a soft box, tripod and controlled lighting.

    How are you getting a macro shot with a 50mm lens Dave?
    Just adding an extension tube to it?
