Nice tutorial. I have a reversing ring on order, so any information I can find on the method is helpful! Cheers :)

It might be worth mentioning that you can calculate the magnification by dividing the focal length of the first by the focal length of the second.

So here we would have
125 : 50 = 2,5

Great tutorial! I have been looking into this technique for a while but never fully understood it and was worried about damaging my lenses. Thanks for explaining it so clearly!

I think I should work as long as you use two lenses. The one lens reversed method I saw didn't work on my D40.

I can never get it to focus when I even just use one lens with something close-up. I think I may need more practice. Thanks for the tutorial!

I've got a quick question. Is it possible to change the aperature (to F3.5 or away from it), or are you stuck without any aperature control? I've got a D80 and the stock 18-135. I've also got a reverse lens ring that lets me attach the lens to the camera backwards.

But, the aperature shows up as "F -.-". There's no way to change this, right?

Hmmm... I'm not the best person to ask. I usually just fiddle with the settings until it looks right. :) Try posting this question in the club forums or on the DA forums.

Residue is spelt RESIDUE, not RESEDUE.

Second paragraph of article 1. Required Equipment.
