So it sort of happened again. I went back to my favorite "Discount Closeout" store to see if I might find another of those $3.00 video microphones for Vinz. The bad news is I rummaged around the place for a while but no more bargain mics to be found.
But the good news is, tucked out of the way toward the back of a lower shelf behind some other stuff I spied this Fotodiox macro extension bellows. Which I'm figuring is probably for a Pentax or a Minolta. But what do you know, it's for a Canon EOS!
It wasn't quite the bargain that the video mic was though. I had to give a whole $8.00 for it. Guess I'm going to have to stop in the place every night now in case they get some SpeedLights in!
When I figure out how to use it and get time to experiment a bit I'll post some sample shots.
