Great Macro Flash

Excerpt: We bought this flash for dental photography with Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens and Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR Camera. It is heavier than the Nikon D70, Nikon macro lens and Nikon ring flash that it is replacing but the images have consistently better color and more accurate exposures.

Excerpt: Easy to set-up, TTL tends to overexpose, but you learn to compensate, but on the other hand, this means it's not underpowered, and you get excellent results. I wish it could go in 77mm lenses, but I guess for most, 67mm is good.
Excerpt: I shoot multiple off-camera radio controlled Speedlites in a variety of ways, but never really delved into macro lighting. This Ring Light is amazing and makes it so easy to shoot great hand-held macro at 1: 1.
Excerpt: Great flash. Good even for portraits. You MUST, however, get all the Canon adapter rings. You WILL need them. I feel Canon should have made to diameter of the basic flash ring a bit bigger so that the flash could be used with a larger array of lenses.
Excerpt: I love to shoot flowers, especially with insects involved. This allows me to do that and get a good depth of field, but also a quick flash stops the movements of the insects. I am getting very nice results. It is a bit heavy on my Canon 5D Mark III.
Excerpt: This is a versatile flash. mostly used for macro photography but works well for informal portraits, I was surprised how light the unit is, I was very pleased with the flash. I recommend that all three of the adapter rings be purchased if you plan on using the flash for more then macro photography.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: this thing is causing me some grief.. It certainly works well and improves photos...so whats the issue?I have a MP-E65mm Macro lens and three nice Hoya filters (58mm) and i can use NONE of them with the ring lite. The ring lite wont attatch if a filter is on the lens.
