What will I need/want in terms of equipment?
You will need the following:
* Note you can do this kind of stuff with a Point and Shoot camera but you cannot use a bellows unless you can remove the lens. So using a Point and shoot means using additional lenses (diopters) on the front of the cameras built in lens, which can reduce image quality.
You will definitely want the following:
I started out without these components, with the bellows/camera/lens mounted on a sturdy tripod, and the subject placed on a pile of stuff to bring it in front of the lens (and using the OM bellows focus rail to move the camera to adjust the plane of focus). This is not really a satisfactory setup but you can do some lower magnification (up to say 2:1 or 3:1) test stacks like this if you haven't got around to setting up a proper fixed rig.
These will probably also be useful:
