    Oh looook…isn’t that cute…they’re playing leapfrog..!!, I’ve just had to look up what mt24-ex twin lite and 68mm tubes are…very impressive set-up mate…and put to good use here…such detail…top stuff Jas…

  • Cheers Jonno mate. Yeah very happy with my setup now, now I just need to improve my technique and also soften my lighting a bit better. Very happy with the gear.. disadvantage is this crap is heavy as hell to hold for minutes on end trying for better focus/comps – can make it difficult when working with such a tiny dof at 2×.
