OK, so I've taken a couple of photos of my basic macro setup. First, the stuff I use:

./showthread.php?p=184​19007&i=i150531064
forum: Canon EOS Digital Cameras
A flexible arm with a mini-ballhead on one end. The arm is mounted to a mini quick-release clamp. I needed an adapter screw to connect the arm to the clamp and added some epoxy, because I would often unscrew the joint when bending the arm.
Plus a flash cable, the end with the hot shoe screwed onto the ballhead.

A mini softbox to diffuse the flash. Dirt cheap and folds flat, so it fits into almost any bag. And an ordinary flash (speedlite 430 II in my case).


Can you tell me what mini clamp you're using or where you got it? I can't find one with a hole in it like yours.

Thanks

Mike

I ordered it directly from Novoflex. Seems to be horrendously expensive in the US, though -?

Thanks. Yes, that is expensive. I already have most of the parts from other projects so I'll keep looking.

Doesn't happen too often, but these dragonflies sat in places I could get close enough to for using the macro lens (first one sat on a grass stalk in a meadow, the second one on a dogwood bush).

The dragonflies have been nice to me lately :-D
For whatever reason, I hardly see any other species than common darters these days.
