No need to register means just turn up 7am at the MRT stn?

Is it easy to locate insects for shoot at AP? I find this a big challenge for new macro shooters. got field workshop for this or not :)

Want to try out my new Raynox DCR250 and DIY build-in flash diffuser :)

I usually only use dedicated Macro lens...

Understand many get a lot of nice shot using cheaper version...

due to lousy skill, I will need a better gear to help... haha

Problem with cheaper alternative...

1, reverse macro adapter will damage the front thread in long term, worst if there is rotating element and cause the rear element expose.

2, Close up/Raynox, working distance too short and IQ degrade... and I am using 77mm Lens which Raynox doesnt support.

3, extension tube, increase magnification but light loss, narrower DOF, close working distance.
