M/S Museet for Søfart

Hats off to M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark in Helsingør and Kossman.dejong from Amsterdam for a varied and splendidly lit exposition.
Not all of the descriptions are positioned ideally, but the whole visit was a pleasure.

BIG Bjarke Ingels Group (Copenhagen/New York) built the museum in an old dry dock.

Extension tubes MCEX-11 and MCEX-16, used with the X-T1

In my opinion the extension tubes MCEX-11 & MCEX-16 are not a must if you already have a macro lens, but are useful if you’d like to use your other lenses for macro. The three pictures below are handheld, using both tubes at once, and only cropped to square.

60mm macro with MCEX-11 (Xylocopa violacea on Phlomis fruticosa):

60mm macro with MCEX-16. You can get closer, but for me the MCEX-11 is easier.

55-200mm, at 200mm, left without extension tubes, right with MCEX-11 and MCEX-16:

18-55mm, at 55mm, left without extension tubes, right with MCEX-11 and MCEX-16:

60mm macro, top left without extension tubes, top right with MCEX-11,
bottom left with MCEX-16, bottom right with both tubes:

Earlier examples with the 60mm macro and the extension tubes, February 2015.

For comparison: the X100s with no converter / TCL-X100 / WCL-X100.
I’d have expected the TCL-X100 to get closer than the WCL-X100.

Warning: as much as I like these Shapeways products: they use UPS for delivery which can be a bad surprise with up to 50% additional costs to what you payed to Shapeways!
