Twin flash adapter for nex (DIY)

Unread postby Marcell Nikolausz » Sun Sep 23, 2012 2:57 pm

When sony came out with the HVL-F20S flash I realized that there is hope to use my NEX-5 for advanced macrophotography. The idea was to create a optical fiber based adapter mimicking the effect of the twin flash. My DIY project gave birth the the fiberstrobe V5 twin flash adapter:

I can attach any kind of home made light modifier to the end of the fexible light arms:

But for 1:1 macros it works well without any extra diffusors.

You can find more details in my blog:

Thanks,

When the weather supports me I would use it a lot in the weekend and I can hopefully show some new pictures
