  1. Small Jaw

    I found this little specimen that I assume is a jaw section a while back when sieving through some matrix. The material that it came from is marine from the toolebuc formation in central Queensland Australia this is cretaceous albian in age. Any input I would be grateful for. The specimen is 4mm on the long so quite small Regards Mike
  2. # plate show us yours

    Hash plates are among my favourite of fossils and they are fantastic to photograph. So please add some of your beautiful photographs of your stunning plates. Properly one of my favourite Hash Plate. I found it in a river in Wales Uk when I was 16 and camping . It reminds me of the The Nazca Lines , Nazca Desert, in southern Peru.
  3. Hi all. I have been really getting into Macro Photography. I only have a phone and a very cheap Macro lens. I have been recommending the clip-on lens quite a bit to members. A few of you purchased the lens but could not get the best out of it. So I have decided to add a few tips. Bobby’s Top Tips Macro style. 1. Always place the objects you’re photographing on a steady flat surface. Do not hold the object, as there is too much movement for a macro lens, which can cause the object to be blurry. 2. Sit still at a table to take your photos, and if possible, rest your arms on the table to steady the camera by holding your phone with both hands. 3. Don’t use any zoom function on the camera phone, merely move the Macro lens towards and away from the object that is been photographed until it comes into crisp focus. The phone zoom is not really designed to be used with a clip-on Macro lens, and will add noise to the image very easily . 4. Keep as still as you can when pressing the shutter button. Take multiple pictures, sometimes I take 10 photos just to get one good image 5. Lighting: make sure you have an even source of strong light . Outside in good conditions, or purchase a daylight bulb, and use it in an Anglepoise lamp. Without good lighting, your photo will be blurred. And that's about it. With a good camera phone a cheap lens you can get fantastic closeups. I hope this helps. All the best, Bobby
  4. found something really weird

  6. Cretaceous vert

    I have done a little bit of sieving and found this interesting little vertebra. Its quite small at about 3 mm long and was found in the cretaceous (Albian) of central Queensland Australia. The specimen was found in a cretaceous sediment from a marine environment, however I do not think its a marine animal. I have a good idea of what I believe it is from but comments would be appreciated. Mike D'Arcy
  7. This one is baffling me. I found it in Post Oak Creek, Sherman Texas. It's about 3/4 inches long and the top is somewhat bony, The triangular part is smooth with a glossy white coating.

  9. Tiny Tooth

    It's been pretty cold here in Kansas the last couple of days, so I decided to go through some matrix that I collected from the basal Greenhorn, bottom of the Lincoln Limestone. This matrix is full of sharks teeth, bone fragments, fish teeth, gastroliths, clam shell fragments and lots of coprolites. I thought I would share these photos I took with my iPhone with my 5x loop held in front of the camera. I haven't id'd the small tooth yet. The squalicorax is 10mm. >Michael
  10. Just wanted to share my first attempt at focus stacking. These crinoid fossils were found in Sandoval County, NM. The larger fossil on the right measures 12mm in diameter. To get this shot I used my Canon 6D with a 100mm 2.8L macro lens and a tripod. I placed the fossils on a piece of black acrylic (outside) and took a series of 6 photos, each with a slightly different focus area, then I combined the photos in photoshop. Each photo was 1/50 sec, f11, ISO 400, no flash. Any feedback is welcome. -Zach Size reference:
  11. Digital Imager For Microscopes

    So I have been playing around with taking pictures through my microscopes over the last year or so and so far I have not bee terribly impressed by the quality of the images. I purchased a Celestron 2MP digital imager (http://www.amazon.com/Celestron-Digital-Microscope-Imager-44421/dp/B003DVP7CE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1385480943&sr=8-1&keywords=digital+imager) which was quite cheap ($35) last year and the picture quality is pretty poor, which is about what I expect for 2MP. I have a DSLR camera and a mount that I have used, but I have an older DSLR without live view which makes focusing and otherwise seeing whats going on very difficult. I like being able to hook the microscope imager up to my laptop and see exactly what I am doing as I take pictures and video, or just use it as a more comfortable way to view whats going on under the scope. I want something higher quality, but the price for digital imagers over the 2MP range jumps up substantially and I want to know if anyone has used them and can speak to the quality. The one I am specifically looking at is a 5MP unit from Amscope (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005N9ZJOU/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2LCNHN559KS87&coliid=I25GSNC3PICTTK). I just want to make sure I am not having quality issues from something else, as I look at the sample pictures from the Celestron adverts and they look a lot sharper than the ones I have taken (which might just be typically over optimistic advertising). I have also noticed when using my DSLR setup that the depth of field is incredibly shallow so only a small slice of the fossil is in focus. Is there anything that can be done about this other than using stacking software? I have included some photos from my Celestron unit to give an idea of the quality I am currently dealing with.
