I got me some of these new compact & foldable Godox softboxes AD-S60S, AD-S65W, AD-S85S, etc. for my Godox AD300Pros. They work just fine but I wanted to use the magnetic colour gels from my AK-R1 kit with them. So I decided to design my own gel holder compatible with the AD300 Pro.
Here’s how I 3D-Printed these hinges to make a sturdy studio V-Flat
I made some sturdy VFLATs for my studio from thick Styrofoam boards and 3d printed parts without using any tape – LOL. They came out great! Here is how I made them.
How to use a reverse macro lens with the Blackmagic 6K pocket cinema camera
Need extreme close-up shots of tiny objects in your video? You’re on a budget and don’t have these fancy extreme macro lenses? Use the technique called “reverse lens macro”. It’s well known in the macro photography world but surprisingly unknown in videography.
Simply put, you take a wide-angle lens. For example, take an old 28mm and mount it in reverse via a macro coupler ring adapter to your camera. That’s all there is to it. The wider your lens is, the higher the magnification. This technique works with every DSLR / mirrorless camera not only with the Pocket 6K.
How to use microscope lenses on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K
I had some fun lately shooting some macro, and I was curious if I could somehow use my father’s old microscope lenses on my photo and video cameras. The idea is not new. A quick google search showed that it was indeed possible, but you need a special adapter for microscope lenses. The adapter is called “M42 to RMS,” and it is available from Aliexpress.
I didn’t want to wait 4 weeks for the metal adapter to arrive, so I thought, let’s design one in Fusion360 – but before I start, let’s check Thingiverse first, and voila! Someone designed it already – LOL.
