In Topic: Diopter

30 June 2015 - 06:54 AM

If you're interested in shooting subjects that are smaller that what you can fill the frame with at 1:1 and you don't want to crop, then you need a diopter or other tool to give you more magnification. I have no hands on experience with the Nikkor 85mm but it looks like the mfd is similar to the 105mm so it should work with any diopter that works well with that lens. This article has some comparisons with some of the popular wet diopters out there. https://samysunderwa...o-beyond-small/

In Topic: Best solution for a balanced macro rig

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.

In Topic: Nauticam CMC with Canon 60mm

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.
