Holy balls. Bought a cheap adapter so I could play around with some old Minolta Rokkor macro lenses I had around.

Took a test photo of my monitor: https://i.imgur.com/RwlMy1j.jpg

And here is the camera setup with the adapter: https://i.imgur.com/NtBSW4p.jpg

I'm impressed but can't think of subjects to take macro photos of.

Very small flowers and insects tend to be good subjects for macro and you can also get some great bokeh portraits with a macro lens

On the same level in most areas but certain things sound cleaner if that makes sense.

Now that I am sinking 5+ hours a day into Fallout 4 I really fancied a decent surround headset. I used to have the most awesome Turtle Beach one and it cost a fortune RRP. Something daft like £200. HPA50? something like that. It had its own amp and you could adjust each channel and the sub etc. It was also painfully loud, which I enjoy a lot.

Then one day after several years one of the channels on the amp started playing up, and eventually I lost sound to the left ear

I used to love that thing so much. Especially as it gave a lot of ambience to Fallout 3 that you just don't get without it.

So yeah, taken the plunge. the fact it's its own entity is appealing too, just another sound device for me to switch. Easy peasy.

I got it for a good price on OCUK. So that was my reasoning. The one I wanted was £250 so this @ £159 was in between the other one I was looking at (Strix Wireless return on Amazon for £72), but I hate charging stuff.
