Last weekend Fujifilm ClubX hosted a small outing for all their members at Botanic Gardens, Singapore. The theme of the outing was macro photography, and everyone got to try on things like the Fujinon XF60mm F2.4 R Macro lens, Fujifilm Macro Extension Tube MCEX-11 and MCEX-16, and a couple of close up filters.
The day begins with brief introduction to the pros and cons for different types of macro setup, followed by hands on session for members to try out the lens, extension tubes and close up filters. We took a short walk along the garden to experience and to try out each setup. Members with some experience in macro photography shared some of their tips with the rest. Through the real life shooting, people get to know which setup will be ideal for their kind of photography style.
The day ended as a fruitful one for everyone of us. It’s always nice to get to know other members of the club in person, get to learn from each other, and most importantly get to try out something before decide on the spending. A big thanks to Fujifilm Singapore for generously loaning few sets of XF60mm F2.4 R Macro lens and macro extension tubes for this outing. Without their support, this event wouldn’t have been such a success. Thanks for the support from ClubX members as well. Looking forward for the next outing.
