Yeah, I didn't think Leong would recommend a ring nor a macro flash that was why I was wondering, unless he had specific reasons lah.
isn't ring flash a bit 'extreme' to start with?
I think a ring flash would be a lot more restrictive and less versatile in field/nature macro applications. Leong's set-up offers far more versatility. But check with the XMM just to be sure. He has been through it all and can save you a lot of heart, head and wallet ache.
1 x R1C1 = S$900+
2 x sb-900 = 1k+
2 x 580EXIIs = $1.2+ K
2 x old Sunpaks or Vivitars = $150 - $400
Portraits is still better for me
60mm good and sharp even at 2.8
would anyone recommend an fuji s5pro?
