I am currently on the M/V Shear Water anchored just outside of the famous Blue Heron Bridge critter dive in Palm Beach, Florida. Not long ago, we were surprised by a diver who burst out of the water onto our back deck -- it was Shen, who works at Reef Photo & Video (and who, incidentally, is a critter expert at Blue Heron Bridge).

I noticed that Shen's Subal rig had LocLine arms attached to the end of his Ikelite strobes. I looked inside the arms to see if they were painted white and discovered fiber optic cables! Ingenious!

I'm not sure if Reef Photo & Video is selling fiber-optic snoots, but they are usually up for doing custom modifications. I know that I want one!

Have you ever used just Canon 60mm + Kenko 1.4x?

Hi hcchu,

I use compact macro port (111 / for 100mm lens).
You can put "60mm + 12mm tube + 1.4/2x tc setup" in this port.
The port still usable with "100mm + 1.4x tc" but from 2x you need extension ring between port & port base.
