Purchased Capture NX2

Trial period out of Nikon NX2. Decided it is the post processing software for me a long time ago so planned to support one of the local serious photography shops by purchasing the box in order to get a key. But the local FotoVideo shop was sold out!

Well, well painless to buy key online from Nikon's Norwegian site. Put me back 1499 NOK, around 220 USD.

The BR-2A

A cheap alternative to a micro/macro lens is an adapter that allow you to mount a lens the 'wrong' way. Nikon call it's the BR-2A Macro Adapter Ring. Which is a bit funny since Nikon else do the right thing and call their macro lenses micro lenses....

For some reason it comes in a big package from FotoVideo!

Unpacked:

The 50mm 1.4D mounted in reverse:

The first test shot:

Put me back 345 NOK (69 freight), around 50 USD.

I will tag images shot with it "Nikon Macro Adapter Ring BR-2A" on Flickr.

So I was wrong about that aperture ring would not be used on the 50mm!
