In Topic: Best solution for a balanced macro rig

20 June 2015 - 07:18 AM

The float rings made for macro ports (like the one in the image that James posted) are the best solution I have found for balancing a DSLR macro rig. One of those plus some float arms should get you close to neutral.

I'm a canon shooter so I don't have the 105mm but I'm fairly certain the rubber needs to be removed. It must be removed on the canon 100mm IS. It should be pretty obvious once you attach the plastic ring. If the rubber needs to be removed the plastic ring won't fit properly.

One more vote for the keldans. The video 8m puts out a realy nice wide soft light.

Have a great trip! She will be happy with the SMC and 100mm combo. You can also stack the SMC with the subsee +5

Here are some examples with that combo and the SMC plus the Nauticam multiplier.

While visiting this subject, what would be preferred with the Canon 60mm (and a T3i), the SMC or the SubSee +5 ?

I haven't tried the SMC with a 60mm but the subsee +5 is really useful. The problem with the 60mm is the working distance is already really short so if your interested in shooting very small subjects the 100mm with diopters might be better. There is a chart in this article comparing the subsees and SMC with the 100mm. This is with a full frame camera so you would have tighter framing with your camera.
