Really cool!
I have one question ...if your zoom lens extends and retracts as the zoom is changed ....does that matter ...or do you size it so as to fit at the short end of the range?

It's however long you want it, usually fixed length. By using a reversed lens as macro, the lens length will be in a fixed position with the entire camera moving back and forth to focus on the spot you want to shoot at. Or, you can make a tube that extends and retracts as you move it around for non-macro uses.


Great shots are like great parking spaces... if you're not quick, it's gone!

All these ideas using aluminum foil , fibre optics etc lead only to one thing. A light loss. A small outlay of cash and a bit of effort can make a twin strobe front flash. This I have successfully done. Using electricians cable truncation I made a camera bracket with two strobes that are level with the front of the lens. At 12" from subject the aperture is F16. along the front are three supabrite LED`s for focus assist in dark shots.
