Close-ups setup - Lambency flash diffuser

Close-ups setup - Lambency flash diffuser
Canon 450D with 100mm/2.8 Macro with Lens collar attached. Wimberley F-2 "Shape shifter" macro bracket attached to quick release plate on Lens collar. Nikon SB-800 Speedlight mounted on Nikon SC-29 TTL sync cord, attached to Wimberley macro bracket. SB-800 flash unit with Nikon SW-10H Diffusion Dome attached and P4 Lambency flash diffuser (Chinese Gary Fong Lightsphere knock-off) covered with aluminium foil.

This setup requires a high amount of flash power (1/8th for f/8 ISO100 1/200s) and produces harsh highlights when photographing subjects like large (20mm) beetles. Not recommended.
