5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected. 19 Mar 2011
By Peter Piper TOP 500 REVIEWER
There are many apparently similar units available on Amazon, but as far as I can tell from the photos, they are all the same device: An LED ring lamp made by Neewer Electronics. Disregard any nonsense about which camera the device is suitable for. If there's adaptor-ring that matches your lens size, and you have a flash mounting on your camera, this will work with it. So shop around and buy from a reputable and cheap supplier.

First impressions are good. The unit is well-packaged in economic but quality packaging. The instructions are in Chinese/English but to be honest you don't need them. The LED ring is powered by a coiled lead with a connector that fits into a unit that slots into the flash hotshoe on top of the camera. This unit holds two AA batteries within, or can have the supplied 3.3V adaptor connected. A switch on the battery compartment depowers the ring, or selects mains or battery power.

The LED ring itself slides onto one of six adaptor rings that screw onto the front of your lens. The rings are of acceptable quality and when, with care and a little trepidation, I screwed the adaptor onto the front of my Nikon lens, it screwed on smoothly. There is a switch on the LED ring that selects either left or right half of the ring to be illuminated or the full ring. The LED ring can be rotated on the adaptor ring to allow you to direct your "half" as you see fit. The rotation is a little loose but that could easily be remedied by most owners.

In use, the fact that it is a lamp and not a flash unit is a mixed blessing. One benefit is that for macro work, it allows easy focussing and provides what I would call a WYSIWYG facility that is not possible with flash, unless you take a test picture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Macro Ring 'Flash' LED Light 23 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase
First and formost this IS NOT A RING FLASH - it is an LED RING LIGHT! That explains why it is so much cheaper. However it still does a useful job. I will mainly use it to take macro photographs of flowers and fungi - and it seems to do an excellent job with small specimens in dark woodland environments. However, you neither get the intensity or 'speed' that you get with a genuine ring flash - so its probably not as good for moving subjects or subjects where maximum depth of field is required - such as small insects. I have used it for insects and it helps - but not I guess as much as a dedicated ring flash. However, for the price it is a very useful bit of kit - simple and uncomplicated to use - simply switch it on and off as required. Certainly will be in my camera bag this autumn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value 16 Nov 2010
Excellent product, very easy to setup and use. It would be better described as a 'LED Light' than a 'Flash LED Light'. Excellent results.

4.0 out of 5 stars LED Macro Ring Light 28 July 2011
By PBros
This is an interesting piece of kit given all the contents for the price. The adapter rings alone would cost nearly this amount if purchased separately. The mains adapter (at 3.3V) is a useful extra included in the kit and will certainly be used by me in the studio setting.

I already own a ring flash, but wanted to use a constant light as finding and focusing on small insects in shadowy places can be tricky, especially with an extreme close-up macro setup of around 3 to 5x magnification. The problem is that 2 AA rechargable batteries are just not up to the job (at 2.5V), it really does need 2 AA high power batteries (at 3V) to deliver the grunt required for all the LEDs in the ring. I jury rigged up 3 rechargable AA batteries (at 3.25V) and this worked fine, giving similar output to the mains adapter.

From my testing, I still think I am losing around 2 stops of light over the ring flash that I own, so it is my opinion that it will have limited use for macro work, but as I said at the beginning of this review, it will find some uses in the studio.

To summarsie: Thus I cannot really recommend it for the extreme macro photography that I do as the kit stands, but think it is still a useful tool in a photographers' armoury of kit. Hence the 4 stars given. Perhaps the kit would be better if it was modifed to fit 3 AA rechargable batteries instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Macro Ring LED Light for Canon 29 Nov 2012
By JT
Verified Purchase
If you want a ring flash this it not for you as it is only a ring light ,you can switch from full lights to only left or right side light
, if you want to light small items, insects etc for macro without any control on power but just bring light into the viewing area then this is acceptable not the best build quality tho, the locking nut on the thread hot show connection on the unit I recevied is at an angle but still works . It is presented well in its packaging but once out and handled you can see its not a 200 pound unit.
It is supplied with an ac adaptor which is usefull if your near to a socket when taking pictures and do not have to stretch to far from it , other power on the hoof is by two AA batteries havent used it enough yet to say what battery life would be
The rings fit onto the camera without a problem and the light slides into the front of them with a good tight fit
I was looking for a cheap and simple way of adding some light into macro photgraphy this does the job as a occasional piece of kit I believe it will serve its purpose so I am not dissapointed with it how long will it last I dont know maybe I will update again in a few months time , however if you want a cheap and inexpensive unit purely for adding light in a macro situation then this seems to do the job Ok , and if I drop it I wont screem that much
