I've been shooting video with an older DSLR for a while so have hit a wall as far as getting more magnification from a Canon 60mm. For stills I have used a 1.4X teleconverter and have been thinking to get a reverse macro ring(pretty much flip the 60mm and attach the 1.4X coupler at the end(?)), however, I'm not sure if this will work (plus in manual mode I will need a different focus ring). So before I start forking $ out again, I wanted to ask if anyone has done that or has any ideas?
I know I can buy a diopter (Subsee or similar) but have read a +10 would be overkill and a +5 would be more than enough?
Basically I need more magnification than what is shown in this video(mostly interested in showing more detail on slow moving subjects(i.e. sea slugs, crustaceans etc..)
Any info will greatly be appreciated.
