Stunning macro with D70 flash + paper diffuser!

D70 built in flash + sheet paper = macro studio flash with TTL!

Boy, for only 6 megapixels, this baby can resolve some detail!

I was going to fix up my ten year old lighting rig for macro, which was a cheap manual flashgun on a bracket, with some clamps to hold reflectors, diffusers etc, until I thought of the built in flash! Eureka - forget all that junk with no TTL - I got a sheet of A4 paper, tore a hole for lens to poke through, folded it 45 degrees either side of the lens to make a light tent, and bingo, the built in flash is diffused. Plenty of power to get F22.

Total cost, one sheet of paper. Portable and affordable.
