    Default Light Ring Sony 4.4 Watt HVL-RLA

    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
    Power Requirements
    4x AA Alkaline /AA Ni-MH Batteries
    Luminance
    150Lx (at 0.3m)


    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.
