Yeah, how did you edit yourself out of the reflections?
Very nice!Very nice photo! Fascinating those reflections
No need - it was at at 5x with the MP-E 65mm, the FoV is smaller than the fingernail of your pinky (the white spots are the reflections of the MT-24 EX flash heads).
Oo, interesting article, been wondering what the speeds were... you wouldnt happen to know the durations for the 430EX II would you? been trying to find articles but havent found any yet...
Sorry, no idea. I found one post indicating the 430EX II is ~1/520 s at full power, but that post also stated 1/520 s for 1/2 power, and that can't be correct. I would guess they'll be the same or longer than the 580 for a given flash power, since the 430 has a less powerful flash tube.
