 ;D Yes the spider is alive... He is in the wild now.. Believe it or not, I cannot find a single insect yesterday except this one.. Malamig pa kasi sa labas..Kinunan ko rin kunti ng video before ko pinakawalan. Tinulak ko pa sa pwet para mag move  ;D

Nilagay ko sya sa freezer for 10min, then take as many photo before he moves..

Di ko nasubukan mag freeze...baka kasi mamatay!!! Anyway, anong lighting mo sa video. Can you adapt a ring flash at the tip of the MP E 65mm?

pwede ang ring flash..about sa lighting ng video, LED light lng kahit di na powerful, kaya ginamit ko yung neewer na gooseneck flash

Hirap makahanap ng jumping spiders pero i plan to get a small aquarium once I see one.. I manage to get 3-5x handheld with about 30% hit rate..I will try with a teleconverter to 7X and see if I can hit something handheld..

I got the 1.4X TC today and the ant no longer fit the full sensor of the camera..I did some test but I forgot to use RAW.. I will test more using RAW format..

Regular reflector barely work when the lens is fully extended so I am going to use the canon MT-24EX flash.. Fully extended only has 1.5 inches focus distance.. I use aluminum foil and tied it to my hot shoe flash to get that close...  ;D

 ;D Ok Finally got to put it all together, my mean extreme macro machine.. Will test how it performs in nature.. DIY diffuser using one of the filter case with double sided tape on each end..Wont add much to the bulkiness of the flash..The Kirk FR-2 is solid and no wiggle at all, one full knob rotation=1mm lens travel..
