I was all over with focus. It doesn't get any better. I was not getting enough light on the piece.

Since I shot that, I have tossed all the ping pong balls.

I am now running four jansjos (plenty of light now) and have affixed a circle of Opalux around the lense and have the lights shining straight down, much like Darth's system, through the Opalux but no ping pong balls.
So far, I have been able to open the F-stop to 5.5, get more shutter speed. Around 1/60 if I recall.
I will post tomorrow a photo of my setup and what I have so far been able to get out of it.
I still want to try a few things.

I am getting a similar effect from a Phillips Hue lamp. Just started using it last night. Advantage is that I have 52,000 colors.
These pics are unaltered, unfiltered and taken with a junk cell phone camera.
These colors are real and I will be posting the method/setup soon.
