    Works very well for short range, especially into cavities:

    Its good to have something DIY, cheaper costing but if these LEDs are too near to the lens, u might get glare from it. If I am not mistaken your cam barrel extend out when u zoom right? so guess it will work perfectly for u GOOD sharing here.

    The diffuser (cut out from a small plastic container used for cream) is flush with the lens barrel, so there is no glare at all.

    Continuous light is not suitable for insect photography as the light will scare them away. It is more for still life photography like flower. The ring light is good for very close range but will produce shadowless effect (make the object look flat - 2D). Not suitable for nature too.

    If you want to take insect photography, my recommedation is use a slave flash. Click here to see more info.
