If it's canon mount then yes, it'll say ef or ef-s in the name.

Can I use a Tamron Telephoto lens for my Canon 60D?

I probably should have updated those posts, I've gone through loads of options over the months since that post.
I think it's because I'm often using extention tubes with a macro lens, I haven't checked but it's probably giving me around 3:1 without throwing crop factor into the mix, so lighting is critical
Led ringflash, was adjustable but still pretty flat, colour was poor
Olympus twin macro flash, my favourite but pricey, also had the opposing effect to a ring, being a bit too harsh and directional for a lot of shots
Also tried a few leds on flexible arms without finding anything versatile enough to cover most bases.
Then I found 1001 articles about diy diffusers and now have a few options that cost next to nothing that I prefer to all the above options.
I may have to get an olympus flashgun soon to fully utilise the focus stacking features in my camera, and i may get a raynox filter to fit a zoom that doesn't work well with extenders, but other than that I'm quite happy with my kit.

If you are a Canon user then the Yongnuo Macro Ring Lite YN14EX is worth looking at. This model meshes in with all the auto flash settings on the EOS models and is very easy to use.
This new breed of ring lite features two separate tubes that sit each side of the lens as opposed to the old style which was an unbroken ring around the lens and yes did give boring lighting but all that has changed with the new breed of guns.
I have been using one for over a year with a range of macro lenses magnifying from basic 1:1 life-size and 3x life-size and can't fault it apart from a slightly flimsy battery cover catch which I corrected with a small screw
From memory the cost was around 70UK from a well known shopping channel which is a fraction of the cost of the Canon model which this one seems to be a direct copy of.

You can do an awful lot with ps, but editing is a chore for me. I'd rather get 99% right in camera and do minor tweaks where needed.
With macro stuff I like to see the textures my eyes can't, and the ringflash does a good job of hiding this. I'll add a couple of pics later to show what I mean

when I'm doing macro I use a ring light but shoot in RAW, when post editing in PS or PS Elements there are lots of tools for light/exposure adjustment, amazing software can do things you never thought possible.

What type of macro flashes are best? I used a ring light type and didn't like the flat dull look. I don't want to spend much but want something easier than juggling off camera flash guns

The clouds were not very friendly tonight, lets hope tomorrow evening will be better.

On the theme of surprise visitors I stumbled across a load of these in a clearing by my local river

Anyone know what they are? The Mrs wants some

this guide popped up in my news feed
I don't have a lens long enough for the idea I had and I doubt I'll get one today.

this Monday 14th Nov @4.30 pm there will be a "Super Moon" the closest its been to Earth in 70 years, SO, what's my best way to capture the occasion, shoot in RAW and adjust everything in L R/PS or fully auto and hope for the best?

Highly unusual visitor to my garden this morning. We love pheasant but I could never bring myself to shoot such a beautiful creature.

Hi guys.

Mrs just bought a cannon eos 80d.
Looking at buying her a memory card for this.

What would the best options be here?

Many thanks.
