Thread: LED's larger than life

    Smile LED's larger than life

    So I was cleaning my camera equipment the other day, and, as usual, I like to shine a light through it see if I got rid of the dust on the front and rear elements. Happened to shine it up on the wall, and this is the result!





    It's an M60L shooting through a Canon 70-200, taken with the lens at 70mm. As you can tell, I have some more cleaning to do.

    Let's see those LED's!

    I noticed this a while back but I can't remember what lens I used to do it. It is a great way of seeing what an emitter looks like without frying the old eyes.

    That's neat that you can see the detail like that.

    That's what many of the lens lights(not optic, lens like an aspherical mag) do.

    Should give a good amount of throw.

    You can do the same thing with a magnifying glass, but it looks bigger with that lens.

    Its interesting to look at all the different shapes each light makes.
