    That seems to be so much more DoF than I get.
    And not once but twice. Great shots

    O.K. took a couple of quick shots with my R1C1 set up... just to try it out... works a treat - just plug & play...very easy.
    I found a dead moth and thought it would make a good model...

    Not sure if I need to change my technique or what, but almost all of my shots looked soft when using the Yongnou, I know its a fine line between in-focus and blurry, but I seem to get a much better rate of keepers using the simpler setup.

    Besides all that, I prefer the look of the photos taken with the onboard flash.

    Testing out a slight modified diffuser set up of mine.

    This is with no editing except some dust I didn't like.
