Stereos From Two Ultra Wide Angle Lenses on A7r3

I would normally post my flower images in Holy Macro but a 12 foot specimen might be pushing the boundaries a bit.

This is not a point by point comparison of the lenses on the A7r3, just some samples in otherwise similar circumstances.

The full credentials, as printed on the lenses:

Minolta MD VFC Rokkor 12.8 f=24mm

Laowa FE 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 C-Dreamer Ultra Wide Zoom

Both were used at f11 in bright overcast light. (A week shaft of sunlight lit part of the background for the Laowa). Exposure 1/80 or 1/100 second. ISO 250. Hand-held. I used the manual lens focusing aid.

In the top right corners there can be seen a tiny aircraft. I would normally crop it out but the DOF might be of interest here.

The plant is Corynabutilon vitifolia (name recently changed) and it is about 12 feet high. Yes, it is leaning, partly due to the weight of water from recent rain.

The shadow in not mine but of a decorative conifer.

The stereos are crosseye.

    An interesting presentation and accompanying tech explanation.

    I would never had thought of trying this with my ultra wides. Thanks for the inspiration to try something new.

    Thank you for sharing these.

    Thanks.

    I had two objectives:

    I wanted an image of the bush in flower. preferably in bright overcast lighting..

    I have many manual lenses (mostIy legacy) have yet to try on full frame.

    I always try to include stereo pairs and ultra wide angles are the best lenses for this.

    Even for high magnification macro I prefer my Laowa 25mm.
