My Equipment

One thing pivotal to my Badge Blog and that I am rather pleased with is the macro photographs of the badges. Obviously without this it would be essentially pointless. One thisng that people have commented on when they see the badges is how small they actually are. For comparison here is one with a penny for size.

The real magic is performed by my beloved camera, a Fujifilm Finepix s1000FD the pivotal function of which is the “Super Macro” mode which allows ridiculously close photographs to be taken. P11-06-09_10.36

Without this the blog wouldn’t even exist.
