I enjoy using my Macro lens every time I get the chance, but its annoying when looking at the results. It doesn’t have the image stabilizing feature, so I always end up with shaky and blurry images. To deal with this major flaw, I make sure not to use this lens when there is no enough exposure and light. A sunny day would be a perfect opportunity to use this lens outdoors.

    Try a mini tripod (or a brick) and release the shutter with the timer…

    A timer helps solve the problem of the shake, I have managed with that.. I think the sizes of the last few pics are off!

    Bu Yousef wallah I bought the gorilla slr tripod and used it for a couple of weeks, but it doesn’t work properly if I’m using a heavy lens, it gets bent everytime.. Very frustrating!

    Marzouq okh! You’re right!! I’m gonna fix them as soon as I get a hold of a laptop. Thanks 🙂

    Tripod and remote.. but i have to be honest I am too lazy to use the tripod.. you know takes time to adjust the height and the angle..

    but these pictures are really good!

    yeah the tripod could be annoying too.. especially when trying to get the right angle.

    pump up your ISO to be able to use a higher shutter speed.
