Received my R1C1 a few days ago (a BIG box of accessories, many might never be needed at all :smile: ). It's still too chilly for bugs to go at full strength, but I managed to find a few "models" for my first shoot with this "magic" flash setup anyway...

Overall am pretty impressed with system flexibility and even lighting. Gonna have sume real fun in summer :smile:

D2x and Nikkor AF-D 105/2.8. ISO160, 1/200, f/16-22.

Thanks Peter, thanks Fred. I won't say the thing is worth $550 I paid for it, but still very useful tool.

Great results! I haven't mine used for macro yet, but will do so this weekend.

The jumping spider really pops. In this pic, the quality of the R1 is obvious. These iridescent colors aren't easy to reproduce.
I also like the ant riding on the darkling beetle (genus Opatrum, just in case you're interested :smile: )..

Cheers

Awesome shots!

I just picked up that kit myself but can't find any bugs to sit still for me - maybe if I put down some super glue hmm....:smile:

Peace

Thanks Harry, yes, I AM INTERESTED, as I still can't find a good guide/encyclopedia on European insects! :mad: I'm looking for something similar to Collins Bird guide I have and can't live without... any suggestions?

Nice photos you have there, Igor.
I was asking about a good ring flash f/ D-200 and Harry posted your thread.
I'm just starting out and the R1C1 system might be just what I'm looking for.

Thanks, Sancho

Great shots, love the spider.

It looks like a great bit of kit - would fit very nicely with my Sigma 150mm which always suffers with lack of light. Birthday coming up soon - I'll add it to my loooooong list !
