Emmanuel,

Thanks for the comments!

I'll have to dig out my old camera and charge the battery but I'll get some pictures of my setupposted by this weekend. I really like the new flash. It takes a little bit of tweaking the adjustments on the flash and experimenting with shutter speeds to get the look you want. Once you get it dialed in it's works great though.

excellent shots. i am just getting into macro, having recently bought a panasonic close up lens, a Raynox DCR-250 and a nikon 4T and 5T. can you please explain your flash setup a bit more, with pics if possible. i need an extra flash, but my fz7 doesnt have a hot shoe, but you seem to manage with your fz7.

The FZ7 with Raynox DCR-250, the +3 Diop lens from the Raynox DCR-5320, and a tiffen circular polarizer filter. The flash bracket is a Delta 1 Grip-it Flip Flash Bracket II. The Wein optical slave is mountedbetween the bracket and the flash.

That flash bracket looks awesome and is exactly what I need. I was looking at metal brackets but never even guessed that there'd be something flexible like that in existance. Where did you find it and can I ask how much it was?

Thanks

I ordered it from B&H Photo for about $70.They also have one with a shorter flexible arm for about $40.

My god thats an impressive set up! I add my little Raynox 150 and thats it, all them would get in my way and make it very heavy indeed. I dont even use a tripod outsode.

How much does all that cost? as I want new bits for my camera, just not sureI want that much yet.

The extras start to add up. Just the extra stuff in the picture is about $500, but it doesn't seem so bad when you buy things a couple of pieces at a time.
