    You can reverse a 50 f/1.8 also.

    The flash is set to slave mode, when the flash from the main camera fires off, it will trigger the slave flash.

    Do note that your working distance from the subject is pretty limited.

    EF 35 f/2 - SLR len.

    35 is the focal length, f/2 is the max aperture, EF refers to the mount type on cameras.

    Means that this len is a 35mm f/2 usable on EF mount cameras.

    A teleconverter extends the focal length of your len. 2x means by 2 times. DRT I have no idea what it means.

    Urm. digital cameras have no mount. The mount refers to the 'hole' that the SLR cameras are designed with. For example.

    Nikon - F mount
    Canon - EF/EF-S mount

    KM and Pentax and Olympus I forgot liao, got one is K or is it P mount?

    1) i kinda brought an adapter ... and it says B-52. Any idea what it means?
    2) so if you click on the thread in my first post, the megaweb said : "A70 + Reversed EF35mm f2 (Handheld coz'no reverse lens filter) . " So does it really mean he is holding the lens while taking the pic? haha... this is real funny

    1) Nope.. no idea

    2) Yep, he handheld the len while shooting. I did that some time back as well with a 50 f/1.8 reversed. He (megaweb) used the 500D on a C750 before for macro shoot I believe.

    Actually, I'm typing this in the hospital on the hospital bed using Wi-Fi. From the first post to the last I've actually proceeded one step further towards the hospital.

    HI megaweb, i saw the following in ur webby:

    Remove the Canon EF 35mm f2 lens filter cover and screw it onto the "2x Step-up Ring 52mm-58mm Ring"

    1)So actually the Cannon EF lens had a filter in front of it and the size is actually 52mm isit?

    2)So the lens, if used by itself (on a DSLR) is also a marco lens isit? or am i wrong?

    3) Does alot of DSLR lens have this 52mm thread in front of it for filter?

    4) If it does what other lens can be used for these farnie farnie effects?

    Megaweb or anyone any advice?

    1) Yes the 50mm f1.8 has a thread size of 52mm
    2) the 50mm f1.8 is not a true macro lens but can focus to about 0.45m away from the subject
    3) Most of the SLR lens have thread size bigger than 52mm. mostly ranged from 58mm to 77mm
