Hi all,

I am new to this particular forum. I keep and a breed Australian Elapids and have a pet fresh water Croc and a couple of pythons.

I was using an old Konica SLR and have now upgraded to a Nikon F55. I have a standard 25 to 80 Standard lens and also a 70 to 300mm telemacro lens with its Macro ratio of 2 to 1. I also have a tripod etc.

What would be a good flash for this sort of camera I was thinking a Metz with a minimum guide No. of 45....any better options?

And was also looking at a 1 to 1 macro lens any suggestions? I basically want to be able to fill the photo frame with something that is the size of a circle 10 mm in diametre....so I can photograph things like small Crinia (tiny frogs) and head shots of small elapids like Pseudonaja modesta etc.

Regards,
