Interesting smac. Great shots. I've thought about the led rings. Whats the max aperture you can use with those. F/8, F/11 ??

Also looked at*a battery powered*fluorescent ring light. They look very interesting a*well.
All the best smac, nice work mate.
Hey Danny, that was the very first subject that I shot using the new Christmas toy. I will have to investigate the apertures. I just followed the recomendation of setting the camera to macro mode and auto WB. It lights up the subject fairly well when you are within 2-3 inches. Beyond that it doesn't put out much light. I had a 150 watt desk lamp hovering above the whole setup to supplement the light. The closest I can get with the cool-light is 2cm. And that's with the tele set in the medium range. All good fun but, I have a lot of experimenting to do.
All the best M8t,
Happy New Year, Steve
