International Supplies has announced that Japanese lens maker Yasuhara just released a Nanoha Macro Extension Tube Set for Micro 4/3rds and Sony E mount cameras. These tubes allow users to increase the distance between the lens and the sensor, thus enabling the lens to focus much closer than its minimum focusing distance. The set includes both a 10mm and a 16mm hollow extension tube that can be used either individually or in combination to achieve optimal magnification. Simply mount one or both of the tubes between the camera and the lens. The two tubes, when used together, can provide a combined length of 26mm. The greater the distance, the closer the lens will be able to focus. For macro photography, the focal distance of the lens must be larger than the extension length of the Nanoha tube(s) used.

When 14th century poet Piers Plowman said “Patience is a virtue” he could have been channeling the future work of National Geographic Photographer Charlie Hamilton James who captured this amazing image after making over 200,000 photographs with a motion–activated camera in Grand Teton National Park. James was intent on getting images of bears and wolves with the Teton Mountains in the background, and he sure came up with a winner!
