Thanks very much. It was fun. Working on the stepper motor control, which is also turning out to be quite enjoyable.

The beauty of the setups you see on this topis is that most pf us avoid tripods... you just need some pratice, that's it

Where do you buy the bracket that attaches to your tripod foot mount on the 300mm lens and attaches your flash?

TIA, Bob

Old set up using a 50mm f/1.8 AF on PN-11 / Kenko tubes with the SB-600 on a bracket and a DIY diffuser made from an old 'Flora' tub (other spreads are available . I cut the lid surface out and replaced with a cloth material.

Started to try a new, lighter flash set up. Basically I've just replaced the SB-600 and bracket with the SB-400 mounted to the PN-11 tube using the same 492 mini ball head and Yongnuo flash lead as before.

And for natural light and/or greater working distances, I switch to the 105mm f/2.5 on any combination of the PN-11 and Kenko set.

Is this printed on a 3D printer?

One of these days I need to post my setup. It has evolved a ton in the last 4 months... I think I can do up to 4:1 now. Working on a flash bracket and diffuser now, know what I want to do, just haven't figured out how I want to do it. The good thing is that I have an ample supply of the diffusing material (I was able to rescue 2 umbrellas from a broken lighting kit) and with all the posts here, the sky is the limit. Anyone here use a Stroboframe? I got one in a grab-bag of stuff, looks sturdy enough to use as a base for my portable rig.

Great woodworking quality.
I don't know if you're aware but velmex builds/sells its unislides for quite a while. Manual or motor driven.
Here is a link
