    Very nice looking kit - though you would need a studio (garage) to use it all
    My dreams of lighting are simpler by far
    Canon 580EX II Speedlite Flash - something good to replace the popup!

    not sure which yet, but its so far off that is does not matter at the moment!
    Canon Flash Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX

    Canon MT-24EX Twin Lite Flash Macro


    chances are that a host of remote flashes, remotes, diffusers and lightboxes will follow this as well

    sigh - photography will drain you cash quick!

    is that a crank i see on the back of the para? could you use that to narrow the path of light? that would be sick.

    As far as I understand it, yes, the crank is used to adjust the width of the reflector.
