    Or what tricks have you got up your sleeve.
    My current (though I can't take Credit for it) and well known one on the www.
    Spending some time playing around with macro lenses and flash and just wanted to see how much the little on camera bugger is up for.
    This is my high tech setup (damned spellchecker)
    105mm Micro nikor with a plastic disposable lunch plate
    Iso 400 f/11 and 1/160sec.

    I've read about using a 'clear' or translucent film holder/can, cut so it sits on the small pop-up flash, but haven't found one to cut up myself. I have used a piece of Mylar as a diffuser of sorts over the pop-up.
    Sorry, don't have any pictures to share.
