enlight photo orbis – Beautiful shadowless light, quickly and easily anywhere, every time!

Conceived by full-time professional photographer, James Madelin the orbis transforms the harsh light from your SLR flash gun to create beautiful, shadowless photos quickly and easily, you don’t need any specialised knowledge or technique. Inspired by the Strobist philosophy. Developed by top optical designers the orbis is made from durable ABS plastic and weighs around 1lb (600g), it is totally portable and designed to work with your camera system’s TTL metering. The ‘one-size-fits-most’ dock means that the orbis ringflash fits a huge range of flashes with no need for add-ons. The orbis works with all your camera system’s functionality and doesn’t stress the fragile hotshoe connection. The orbis ringflash is great fun to use and gives passionate photographers, like you, an edge. If you’re inspired to take your photography to the next level, the orbis is an ideal addition to your kit bag.


With orbis, you never have to worry about lighting conditions again.
  • Stunning studio lighting without the studio…. affordable and easy!
  • Transform your harsh SLR flash into beautiful, shadowless light
  • Fits your detachable SLR flash
  • It’s a ring flash, softbox and beauty dish all-in-one!
  • Compact and lightweight to easily fit in your camera bag
Easy, Shadowless, Lighting!

The orbis fits to your flash in seconds – no bulbs, no batteries, no training course. You put the orbis onto your flash, lift it up in front of the camera and bingo, stunning, shadowless light, anywhere, every time.

The orbis produces a characteristic ‘ring flash’ look that you’ll recognise from high-end magazine photography. Ring flash has long been distinctive of high-end portrait and fashion photography but studio ring flash systems are bulky, fragile, expensive and hard to use. The orbis changes all that.

Did a lot of research before buying one of these, I use three Powerful Sony HVL F58's and couldn't justify selling them plus the additional weight and cost of a bowens/elinchrom/lencarta ringflash system.

The attachment fits onto the flash in its vertical position via two very solid/sturdy flexible arms/grips inside the opening aperture. With prolonged use it has not marked or scratched any of my flashes yet. The flash can be further secured via affixing velcro to the front/rear/both of both the flash and orbis but I don't do this. The orbis also comes with a thin lanyard, again, i remove this as I find it extra hassle. The attachment itself is made of good quality moulded plastic which so far (includes dropping on hard floors +5 times and i've also sat on it!!) seems incredibly durable.

The flash can then be fired remotely with either a lead or wireless remote.

There is some light lost in the reflective process but personally not too much that causes a noticeable problem. the effect is typical of a ring flash - nice even light on the subject, and I hold in one hand and shoot with the other. I find this is quite comfortable, but for some people could be a pain. This cannot be hotshoe mounted, the additional weight would put too much pressure on the flash/camera shoe and possibly damage, so I strongly advise against this. I purchased the bracket to go with this but do not use it, again I feel it puts a lot of pressure on the hot shoe with slight movement.

Personally, travelling light and being more of a strobist this works well, but I will upgrade to a full ringflash off mains powered kit soon, keeping this as a back-up.

Pros

Cheaper than studio alternative.
Light load and simple to attach.

I have thought about buying one of these for quite a few months. I finally relented and used it for the first time on a model shoot the other week. I'm very impressed. Don't get me wrong this is not on a par with the high end high power ring flashes, it wont really work for full length shots, but for portrait/headshots, which I do most it produced some nice soft wrap around lighting.

I used mine with a Nissin Di 866ii flash fired on remoted by the pop up flash set to commander on my Nikon D700 and got great results in both manual and ttl.

I bought this originally for taking commercial type portraits where setting up studio lights is not always possible or appropriate. However I have found the Orbis also works well outside and has produced some very pleasing outdoor portraits.

The Orbis is a light modifier rather than a flash, but it does a good job and is robust. It fits my Nikon SB900 flash perfectly so I don't get that impending feeling the flash will drop out the bottom, though I am still careful how I hold the device.

In some circumstances the flash will create a shadow or red eye but there are usually always ways of getting around this by moving the subject, or for red eye I hold the Orbis to the side of the camera rather than the normal position.

Delivery was very fast. The Orbis is supplied with a yellow travel bag but I prefer to keep it in the cardboard box it was delivered in for safety. For the price it is a very useful addition to your camera kit, especially for portrait work.

Excellent product, value for money. I wasn't expecting much from this product, but once I began experimenting with it I learnt to love it. The results are wonderful.
The only down side is the nature of the product, you can set it up on the stand/ tripod, but if you want to have more freedom and movement, holding it with one hand is also possible. just make sure your other hand is strong enough to hold your camera without it shaking. Also the clip does not work as well on smaller size speedlites (I mean more pocket speedlites), its too heavy for the head and the head will bend over.
The main thing I love about this is my ability to travel worldwide with it, it is also quite durable, I have dropped it several times without any problems, just don't try it from a really tall place onto a really hard surface.
Also don't expect high end results which you might get some a big expensive ring flash.
