WOW! This must be the craziest thing I have ever seen. You are officially crowned as the nuttiest of all.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Download the full version from my Flickr site, put it in StereoPhotomaker (free software) and make any of the file types you wish ( .mpo output file for a 3D monitor). Take a 3D full HD monitor (1920x1080) and enjoy the beautiful 3D images without the headache.

Frans.

I am just getting into macro. I have a Canon 100mm 2.8 and looking to get a flash bracket. I also have a Canon 1.4 TC but it does not work with my lens. Can someone recommend some tubes? Are the Kenkos worth looking into? Really looking at an MPE-65 just really nervous having just got into macro. I certainly think I need a flash bracket and some mini ball heads to try and get started.

Having just acquired the MP-E myself I think it would be a very poor choice for someone just delving into this type of photography. As for TCs/Tubes, any non-Canon TC will mount on the 100 and yes, Kenko tubes might be worth looking into if you decide you're ready for higher mags. That said, and as you've hinted above, your primary focus should be on lighting at this point, IMO. You should be able to gather plenty of ideas digging through this thread alone

MT-24EX and MP-E65 (1:1)

I was going to ask why do you need so many diffusers but after seeing the pictures I realized you know what you are doing. BTW, I really like this pic. Made me smile, and not only in appreciation.

Here's my setup.
Canon 50D with Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro. I usually have a set of Kenko tubes on there.

Chrisa...
I adore #2. I have begun playing with macro. just basically the 50mm reversed in natural light, but would like to try getting some diffused flash on it. Could you tell me a little bit about your home made diffuser on your speedlight?
Thanks
