Fantastic Ring Light

  • 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.

Great flash, but could be a bit better.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Picture Quality

Convenient for flowers and insects

24 January 2015
  • 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.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Bulky

Great

  • 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.
  • Pros: Good Light
  • Cons: Bad Physical Design

Much better than the older model

  • Excerpt: I have used the previous ring flash extensively and this flash is a very welcome upgrade. It uses much brighter LED lights for the pilot (focussing) lights - the previous model's lights were pretty much useless. Also, the new flash recycles much faster.
  • Pros: Easy to Use
