    Macro Ring Flash

    My Sister inlaw went over to Tassie to see her father and while she was there he gave her one of the Macro Ring Flash things.
    I have never used one but I have seen some shots that they have help produce.
    The only draw back is that the hotshoe section on my Sony doesn't fit the hotshoe on the ring thing.
    A little search on ebay and I found just what I needed and will be ordered on payday.
    So I will then be looking forwards to with fingers crossed, getting a few good shots off.
    The one thing I was amazed with was the amount of adapters that it came with.
    But if you think it makes a lot of sense to have so many.

    If it's an older one check the trigger voltage before you try it on your camera, I believe they can fry things ( camera) if it's too high, here is link to read http://www.shutterbug.com/content/us...what-doesn’t but do your own research first to be on the safe side.

    I use one for my fungi shots. They are also apparently good for close portrait work, though I have not tried mine for that.

    Davsv1 thanks for those links.
    I had a read about of them then googled the one I have got and found out it is for a Nikon camera.
    So now I know what adapter I need to get.
    I also found out that my one is a 3.6V-6.7V, so it is all good.

    I am sure if I never had got this information I might have done the wrong thing.
    And this now has given me the time to relax and wait for the adapter.
    Thank You.
