Very good ring flash for Nikon
“Works very well with my Nikon D80, compared to Sigma ring flash the results are quite the same but the price difference is huge ! I use it with a Sigma 105mm f2.8 Macro ans the results are amazing. It’s provided with 3 adaptation rings. Important: very usefull for dentistry photos!” – By B. PAUL
Very good macro flash for the price
“I took the chance on this macro flash as price was good compare to other name brand ones ( Sigma, Nikon…). Oh boy I was presently surprice when I opened the box. The built is decent and it worked flawlessly out of the box. It came with different sizes of adapter rings for most conventional micro lenses. It provided excellent lighting for all my micro shots.
I use this flash with Nikon D80 & Sigma 105mm F2.8 macro lens” – By C. Nguyen
Works fine with Nikon D90
“Before finding this flash, I tried bouncing external SB600 flash off ceilings, and also tried various diffusers like Gary Fong’s Puffer and Light-Sphere to soften shadows, but the exposure is much weaker and harder to get it right that way.. This works very well for intra-oral dental and macro photos. Works great, TTL and everything, on Nikon D90. Came with bunch of adapter rings, but did not need it for a 18-55mm Nikkor lens. Build quality is okay. It’s all plastic and feels very light, but very well made for the price. “ – By Eugene I. Kim
“The flash unit is easy to use, and gives a flat, shadowless result. It is a bit bulky, but once the camera is installed in a tripod, the system is very reliable to use. It syncs well with the D80. “ – By Rob
Works really well
“For its price, this is an outstanding. It enables closeups without the harsh shadows, the bright spots, and the poor guesses at how much light is needed. “ – By Marshall Fine
Simple to use TTL flash
“SO I was in need of a cheap ETTL ringflash to use with my NIkon D5000. I already have a lester dine ringflash for another one of my lenses and was tired of switching the ring flash. This flash comes ready to go out of the box. It had a seamless control thru my camera settings eliminating the need to work thru seperate numbers on the flash itself. saved me time energy and effort. So all in all its twho thumbs up! Highly recommended for thoswe users who are new to DSLRs and require a ring flash. “ – By Z. Qureshi
“Very light and works good but kind of cheap feeling. I don’t think that affects it’s performance though. I bought it to use while taking macro shots and it works fine for that. I would buy it again if it I needed one. “ – By David F.
