Another Item I picked up to help with my Macro Photography. I did not have to $ to buy a Olympus Ring Flash, So I tried a no name brand. (it died after the first flash). So my next choice was a LED powered ring. Technical specs are
Product Specifications
Video Light Operating distance: 0.1 to 0.5m
Viewing Angle
Lighting Angle: 35
Power Consumption
Video Light: 4.4W
<!-- end column 1 --><!-- begin column 2 --> Power Requirements
4x AA Alkaline /AA Ni-MH Batteries
Luminance
150Lx (at 0.3m)
<!-- end column 2 --><!-- START DISPLAYING ACCESSORIES SUPPLIED -->

Pro
- it is not a flash so it works with any camera. the battery pack attaches to flash mount.
- has a hi / low power setting
- can select left / right / or all lights.
- large enough circumference, no vignetting

Con
-hard on batteries as you turn it off/on and if your setup time is long you can run the batteries down. ~ 20minutes
- short range max usable of about a foot
- not a lot of light, good for 1 stop at 1 foot and about 2 stops at 1/2 foot
- a little expensive at ~ $200

over all I am happy with this for my macro work I will post some images soon.
