p.1 #1 · AlienBees Ringflash with wide angle lens?


Hello!

I will soon be purchasing an AlienBees ABR800 Ringflash for a few upcoming gigs, but I have some reservations about it. My main concern is if I will be able to use an ultrawide angle lens in it without blocking the view. I currently own a 17-35 Tamron but will be upgrading to a 14-24 soon.

I wanted to know if anyone has had experience with using both together and if it blocked your view at any point.

Thanks!

an ultra wide is not going to work well with it. It will either vignette or cause flare if you can get the front of the lens far enough to not vignette. The ABR800 is probably thicker than that lens is long, so I would guess the vignette would be the primary issue.

Well shoot...
Any idea if any of the other ring flashes on the market will work with ultra wide angle lenses?
