Good heavens, where have I been? This is new to me.

It looks good; glad I held off on getting an Orbis or Ray Flash.

I wonder how effective this ring flash would be for any macro work, whereas the traditional ring light would be tighter to the lens and subject? Regardless, seems pretty cool for any portrait work.

Has anyone one of these with a D4/D800 and SB-900? It appears that it may not work, as the lens axis to top of the flash on my D800 is about 8.5", while the literature on the website shows a max of 8.3".

Well, I ordered one of these and received an email that it shipped yesterday. Now we'll see how long it takes to arrive.

I tried to buy one, but the site kept saying "Unable to process card. Please try a different card."

I think it's because it goes through PayPal, and several years ago PayPal said they were locking my account because of an expired card, and the customer service rep couldn't understand that I had a new card with the same account number. Or something like that. I can't recall the exact details except that I've refused to use PayPal-only order systems since then, but that appears to be the only option with this company.

I guess it's back to Orbis.

The thing looks flexible enough (being fabric and bungee cord) that 0.2-inch probably won't be a practical limiter.

Nifty. Been looking for a ringflash. And so far this seems to be the most affordable adapter solution.

Yeah, this caught my interest as well. The portability is a big plus for me.

But you can always use a different email address and CC#. This is for those who do not have, nor want a PayPal account.

I have another e-mail address, but I don't have -- nor want -- another debit card. I prefer cash, anyway, but use a debit card when I must.

I've been using the tracking information I received after ordering the ringflash. It arrived in Warsaw, and Google Translate renders the info message as "sending a shipment of Polish." I may need to go to the grocery store, if there's a lot of them.
