I'd like to get a ringlight flash and have seen them on fleabay for around the $65 mark.
Anyone tried these cheapies ?
Thanks for the reply and the link.
Unfortunately I don't have a separate flash, so I was looking at an economical way to do macro.
Here is a link to the type of unit I was looking at: http://http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Macro-...item3cab74541a
As you can see, this unit screws into the filter thread on your .
Any feedback appreciated.
Ah, I see....your link doesn't seem to be working for me though....I am curious to see what it is.
LED's tend to produce a blue. You will most likely need to shoot in , or set a custom white balance when using this device so that the blue is negated. You may find this device is a good way to get into shooting macro using ring flash, and it will probably serve you well whilst you are learning. However, long term, if macro photography becomes your serious genre, you will most likely find it doesn't meet the demands you may want. But, it certainly looks a reasonable unit for the $$.

I think this will be OK to whet the appetite, and will not make you commit >$1k on something you 'might' like.
