I have finished the final modification to the ring flash front filter.
I had some very thick tracing paper which I laminated, One sheet was still a little to thin so laminated another and put the two together then cut the ring out. The first picture was of the finished ring the second was a test shot at F16 with 21mm ext tube.

Excellent Christine, I think you have cracked it! The light is definitely even now, I'm still doing little mods to mine, My problem is the FZ30 does not have a removable lens, so I trying to sort out a tube that is the right size (the tomato tin is slightly to small and I'm getting to much Vignetting.
And as I haven't made up my mind whether to keep the D70 I've borrowed I don't want to start messing with the lens on that.

Lello, I just used a cardboard roll, the sort that carpets are rolled on its quite large. I did have a little vignetting with the 50mm lens without the extension tubes so had to push the ring closer to the body unfortunately the rings gets sloppy at that point because the lens is thinner, so had to hold the ring to keep it level. I may put a little packing in to hold things more central..

Someone has nicked our idea of using camera flash as ringflash.

Brilliant idea Don. Isn't it funny how we all strive for better light on our subject through one means or another then we do our best to try and diffuse or restrict it?? What funny critters photographers are!
