I was talking about transportable macrolight :-)
But I see there is a need for solutions.

thanks for sharing
Hehe, I know it's not very transportable...but it's still at phase 1

Ok, phase 1 complete, now onto phase 2

Taking seemolf's idea this time around, I took a thinner cutting board and used the same fastening idea.

And here's the obligatory test shot. Had a normal light bulb shining directly downwards on this one, and fired it off at 1/1600 f11, iso 100.

I use diffuser (is this how it's called?) which is similar like Stoney79 uses. You can see picture of it in this topic

And if you look at his pictures, than you can clearly see that it works very well. And my version which is not close as good looking as his, also works well for me.

Hi Cerambyx,
I know the stoney bouncer, I have used it for the ladybug in this thread:
But the reflections disturbed me in some pictures(..and stoney79 as well). Just look at the little drop of water on the wing of the ladybug and you will recognize the bouncer. ...and I had some problems to carry this part around!
My latest flash pictures were done with the olympus-type diffusor and 1-2 "selfmade" slave flashes. The front light is diffuse and there are nice shadows almost like sunlight!
