Showing 1-10 of 32
Can NOT mount filters to the attachment ring in front of the lens.

Summary: The flash system is quite good and works for me under many conditions. Flash filter attachments need a redesign to fit firmly. They are also a hassle to work with in the field. The attachment pins are too small and often require you to remove the flash units to install filters and diffuser.
Excerpt: Bought this for dental photography at the recommendation of field experts. Adorama's service and shipping were exceptional. Working with a flash like this is still pretty new to me but so far it looks like it will be a great asset.
Summary: After researching nearly every macro flash system out there on the market, and reading extensive reviews,looking at photographs and checking on craftsmanship quality, I have to say you really do get what you pay for! This system is a bit more money then your standard macro/ring flash setup, but it's worth it in so so many ways.
Summary: I have these flashes since they were first introduced by Nikon some 5 or 6 years ago. They can make awesome light under ideal conditions. However there are some serious design flaws that make them less ideal under normal shooting conditions.
Excerpt: An excellent flash for my 105 2.8 macro.! Wireless, light, easy to rotate the flash heads as needed. Your camera will have to have a "commander mode" though. Deffinately a must have for macro.
