Fibre Optic Ring Flash DIY

07 October 2011 - 03:54 AM

Am hopefully just about to embark on building my own ringflash but have decided to go down the fibre optic route as think it would be very beneficial. Was wondering if anyone else has tried it out and had any tips. Am really after any info on when cutting the fibre do you need to polish the cuts and if you dont how much light loss you get etc.etc. Also any particular tools you used for cutting them?

I think the light delivery should be really good with them and if anyone has any ideas that might be good for it would love to hear them now before i start!

Using t/c with macro - what port extension?

25 June 2011 - 03:27 AM

If someone that has tried it out could let me know what extra size port extensions they used that would help... If anyone using hugyfot and the canon 100mm f2.8 has tried the 1.4tc in particular could let me know as this is the rig i use.

Do i take a wile stab in the dark and guess you just measure the length of the t/c and add that one to it? It is just that i have not bought the tele con yet and was wondering if i needed to get another extension port or if i can manage with the ones i have... did you stick two an additional on to the one you use normally of do you have one just for it?

Any info much appreciated.

Hugyfot 100mm f2.8 Manual focus

25 June 2011 - 03:15 AM

Does anyone know if Hugyfot have actually brought a manual focus gear out yet for the new (ok, it is not new but the newer of the lenses... you know which i mean!) 100m f2.8L IS Canon lens? Or has anyone else managed to make one that fits?

The number of shots i miss at the moment as the visibility is low so auto-focus has issues is starting to drive me up the bend!!! Someone give me some happy news!!
