Here's a couple of photos of a dragon fly wings taken with my recently motorised microscope and a P20 Pro. The technique is documented here:

Hyper Macro, Hyper Depth of Field, Microscopes and Focus Bracketing

A large number of photos were taken at different focal lenghts and then stacked into a single image using Helicon Focus.

If you right-click/view the photos, you can zoom in a long way. These were take at 40MP and the final cropped images are around 25MP.

The above image is the combination of 120 photos.

This one was a combination of 80 photos.

Bloody hell!

These photos are amazing! The mobile phone camera continues to chase the tail of the DSLR!

I was chatting to a chap in Sainsbury's a couple of weeks ago and he was telling me how a mobile phone camera would never replace a DSLR. I also remember some decades ago, how someone told me how digital cameras would never be good enough to replace film.

A couple of years ago a lady was offering film SLR cameras on freecycle for free. Now they have no value.

Amazing how things move on and times change. All for the better. I love it!
