    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?

    actually it is cheaper to start off with......

    image the cost of 2x external flash + 2x flash bracket + the support system.

    Not really.

    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.

    Leong being the 3rd XMM in CS..is the only one I know that prefers DSLR Macro... the other 2 XMM I know prefers P&S for more DOF.
