a story of Southern agriculture

Pentax MX-1 Macro Focus Options



If you’re new to the Pentax MX-1 series here at Beef & Sweet Tea, then do partake of the links at the bottom of this post that will take you to previous chapters in this love story.  For the short of it, just know that this camera stands in for my swanky dSLR because it’s just that good of a camera…and it meets my emotional needs.


Today I’m going to briefly tell you about the Pentax MX-1 Macro focus options.

NOTE: all images in this post are SOOC (straight out of camera).  They are not sharpened, cropped, filtered or color corrected.  AND all images were taken hand held on an auto focus setting.



I must say these may be the best spring 2014 pictures ever.

A good farming man picked them for me…

…and, as usual, Tom Gray thought the entire outing was just for him…

I embrace personal bias for these pictures. 


Really though, for the visual good of all mankind, I think the Macro settings of the Pentax MX-1 are pretty wonderful.

Wonderful and easy to access and easy to create with.


Have a look at these Bradford pear tree blossoms compliments of the Macro settings.

    Have you been to Beef & Sweet tea yet? The wonderful southern lady who writes over there is also a very, very talented photographer and a friend. She has stunning spring flower pictures on her blog tonight. All unedited and straight from the camera. Beautiful. Simple. Elegant. Country Link approved!
    Blessings to you,
