    I use a Lumiquest for the 580 EX II as shown in Msg #10 in this post and I find it excellent for macro photography.

    Cheers

    I just use one of those plastic white covers. I tried a sort of strap on lightbox but it was useless. The plastic slip on cover is effective, easy and practical.

    If I need to use one, I just use the 50c thing I bought from eBay. Works fine. I say don't buy into the hype some brands will give you on such a rudimentary piece of gear. Perhaps some stuff, like the Gary Fong globe-like thing, but not those factory-style ones. I also have one of those box-style things kind of similar to the one shown in nardes' post, but it's simple folded frosted plastic. I used it once, if that gives you any idea of its usefulness. Clearly, his setup works!

    I just grabbed a few cheap ones on eBay and change them around depending on the angles required.
    My website has my most recent work - mostly music photography. I am a photographer for Violent Soho, The Smith Street Band and more.

    I also have some photography tips for those with new cameras.
