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 . 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.
