It is a great shame that the Rhingia image is not in a topic of its own.

It's humble, but I can't quite justify a more costly setup with the limited use that I would get out of it. Thanks to BigStreetGuns on the forums here, he helped me find a setup that is relatively inexpensive and effective for basic macro shots:

Canon G11
JJC RN-DC58B Lens Adapter Tube for G10/G11/G12 (58mm filter threads)
Marumi DHG Macro +5 200 Achromat Close up Lens (58mm)
Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Snap-On Lens (fits 52mm - 67mm)
YONGNUO YN560 IV Speedlite

And what do you get with this? What are the lenses?

Old setup here - http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/780820/0#7182291

Pictures of new setup from my article here - http://beingmark.com/macro-illustrated/ - about 1/5th the way down the page.

Panasonic G6 body with a Olympus 60/f2.8 macro lens. With a +8 achromat attached this setup does nearly everything the old one did only better, especially the AF (auto focus). I have used a lighter diffusion material, crimped elasticated cotton, stapled to the plastic. The black line you see crossing the green is elasticated nylon to help control the positioning of the diffusing disc of cotton - it can still be flipped left or right to vary direction of

Very nice setup, and similar to one I have made. I've gone through several variations, from complicated to simple. The simplest is so far the most successful! If I get a chance, I will post what I have.

OK, here is my setup. I use a fan-shaped diffuser attached to the end of my Canon 100mm L macro lens. Different materials can be used. This one is translucent plastic. Vellum also works, but plastic is not damaged by a shower.

The flash is the 580EX, with a snoot attached to direct the light toward the diffuser. The snoot is made of plastic sheet and has aluminum foil on the inside. You can see the snoot is attached with tabs on the side. That arrangement makes it easy to tilt it as desired.

The diffuser and snoot are made of stuff that costs almost nothing. They are flat when not mounted on the camera, so they travel easily. With this arrangement I can shoot at 1/4 or 1/8 flash power at ISO 200 or so, with an aperture of f/11.



Here are a couple of shots taken with this setup.

1 Grasshopper nymph



2 Dung fly

Here's my travel setup. I hold a Raynox DCR-250 on the front of my RX-100II and zoom the RX100 to maximum. Then use manual focus. The RX100II also rather handily has focus peaking.

I've included an exaple photo taken on holiday in Majorca, I guess you can say this is the real 'Spanish Fly'.

This is the setup used on my EM-1 with the Raynox MSN 25 diopter supplementary on the 4/3 50mm f2 for extreme macro. It is shown with maximum extension of the lens to closest working distance, which normally gives FOV 35mm wide on m4/3. The x2 matched TC makes that 17.5mm and the Raynox makes that 5mm at a working distance of about 20mm.

Using a x1.4 TC gives FOV ca 7mm and withough a TC FOV is 10mm. The working distance at a given magnification is the same without TC or with either.

The components, from left to right:

Olympus 4/3 adapter MMF-2*, Olympus Digital 4/3 2x Teleconverter EC-20, Olympus Digital 4/3 50mm f2 1:2 macro, adapter to attach MSN (37mm thread), Raynox MSN-202 macro converter (37mm rear thread).

My recent macro shots in Macro World were taken with versions of this setup.

I have not shown the camera or flash as the flash units, up to three, are all off camera, and this setup would also work with flash on the hot shoe (not my choice except when unavoidable).

Hey, here's a few of the setups I use.

MP-e used with and without the Raynox. Got a flash cord now.
The bracket is made from a ring of pvc pipe, some bike chain, a flash foot stand and a lot of araldite.


Example. I find the light a little harsh at times.


This one is with my big flash that I no longer have, full set of tubes + sigma 105 - the old non OS one.


Example. I find this diffuses the light much better.


And what I'm currently using the most. 105 + Raynox 250.


Example.



Daniel.
