Wetpixel member Simon Buxton has posted a super macro video onto the forum that was partially shot using the Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro lens. This lens will shoot “larger than life-size” and with a 24cm closest focusing distance; up to 5x life-size. Some parts of the video were shot using the lens and a Canon 5D Mark III, whilst others were shot using a Canon 7D with the Canon 100mm lens and stacked 5x and 10x Subsee dioptres.
The “little green shrimp” (Phycocaris sp) was first discovered in Lembeh in October 2011.
