ok so ive got my 600D 18mp cropped sensor not if I get a cheapish ff say something like a 5d/7d with technically older technology will the jump from cropped to ff be enough to still boost the image quality?
the difference between your 600D and a 7D is going to be about build quality of the camera and the AF system mainly. So if those are important, the 7D is a candidate. But normal image quality won't change much probably.
The 5d on the other hand is probably a serious step up
Canon lenses lack an external aperture lever, but if your camera has DoF preview you can still make use of a reversing ring thanks to a little hack. In fact, modern Canon lenses default to wide open when off the camera, so you’ll only need to follow these instructions to stop down any. Mount the lens as normal and set the aperture wide open (or however you want it, in fact). Now press and hold the DoF preview button and while holding it in, remove the lens. The lens should ‘remember’ the aperture setting. To minimise the time you have the lens off and the camera body exposed…

In my last post I explained how to get into macro photography cheaply and easily using a reversing ring. This time, I’m going to show you a quick and interesting way to use the reversing ring that’s a bit different from the usual flowers and insects!
It’s amazing how different everyday things can look when seen really close up. For this project we’re going to use things you can find in any kitchen to create some funky, colourful abstract photos. Here’s what you’ll need: …
