    ringflash and ringlight

    I'm using since long time (only when necessary!) ringflash/-light for all my cameras. Price (each) ~ $ 90

    The ringflash uses 4 AA batteries, the ringlight (with 12 LEDs, even with 16 LEDs available) has LiION and is smaller - with this ringlight "you see what you get" and is full usable with all automatic modes.

    Also usable with macro video !

    I have that ring flash for Nikon. It is OK (exposures can be iffy sometimes, for no particular reasons).

    I would be interested in some samples taken with the ringlight. Particularly if the color balancing would be acceptable. TIA.

    Hi @hot, I am interested in what version of that ring flash you are using Nikon, Canon, Etc. because of the compatibibility. And can you share more info about the usage? Can you do manual settings for the flash amount?

    It's a "Canon-version", but I make macros manually - distance, aperture, time, flash ...

    Thanks for the samples.

    This ringlight still is a bit "cold" (blueish), it seems.
