I tested it by taking Macro pictures and the light worked great.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap ring light for macro work (although it is great for portraits too).
CharlesRoland
This ring led light is just like a transformed shape hand held led flash light that attached to the lens.

It does what it says, basically. Some of my rechargeable batts will work with it and others won't. That may be related to the shape of the battery contacts.

Having constant illumination is great for focusing, plus it allows you to choose higher shutter speeds instead of aperture if that suits your purpose.

The battery life is decent, but as you shoot if you're tracking insects etc. you may leave it on to be ready at a moment's notice. You may not notice your batteries are draining and you're not getting much out of it. But gee, they included an AC adapter and if you're doing indoor macro stuff, that's a fantastic accessory to have. That more than offsets the downside IMO.

Being so lightweight, it doesn't seem to tax my kit lens's AF motor at all. The only real downside I have seen is that reflections of the ring light may be broken or jagged. That is, instead of a clean circle of light reflecting off a water droplet, you may see individual LEDs. I've been using it at very close range, though, and I think as you move farther from the subject that's less noticeable or nonexistent.

The other issue TBD would be longevity. For my purposes it's fine and I don't beat up my equipment. If you're a pro...well, why wouldn't you invest the money on a serious ringflash setup if you're a pro, right?

This gets the job done for me with little fuss or fanfare; it's well worth the ~$50 I paid for it, easily. I'm very very pleased with it so far.

Update 5/28: I retested my AAs that wouldn't work before. They work now. It could be that the battery compartment is just a bit fussy. I'm a little tempted to rubberband the back cover to the unit because it can come off.

This unit comes with 6 adapters [49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, and 67mm). The adapters screw into the end of your lens or filter. For me I tested it on my T1i's 18-55mm Kit lens, screwing into my Hoya 58mm UV filter with no problem. The Ring flash then slides over the adapter. The ring attaches to the battery pack (uses 2AA) which itself attaches to your hotshoe (a little loosely but I had no problems) On the battery pack you can choose Off/Battery/ or DC Plug (provided). On the ring light you can choose between Full/Right/Left to determine which LEDs light, either all or half. Obviously the ring can be rotated so that it you can light only Top/Bottom or almost any angle. The LEDs are Bright -I was surprised and impressed. As stated in other reviews they will reflect in reflective surfaces such as Glass/water/eyes. Since I tested them on an EF-s lens which spins the end of the lens to focus I did notice that the ring would turn, however it is easy to hold in place or reposition - I had no problem. The build quality does seem a little weak as it is all plastic but this product is 10% of the price of the Name Brand and works basically the same. The lights Do Not strobe or flash, but simply stay on until you turn them off. If you want to pay $360 more for that feature be my guest I dont need it. For me this is a great product.

I made this video since I couldnt find any when I was doing a research on this item. On the video you see how the 58mm adapter screws into the lens and then how the ring is used on the camera. As you will notice the ring light rotates on the lens. Some will find this an issue but not me. Is all plastic and only the lens adapter is metal. If you take care of it (like I do) you wont have any problem.

I have been wanting a Macro Ring Flash LED Light for macro shooting for a long time. Unfortunately, my priority is always saving up for glass and for strobist related flash, as glass is my priority, I have decided to go the budget route... And the same goes for the Macro ring flash.

At $36-$40, you can't really complain (note: The two shown on Amazon are the same product)...but here is my experience which varies from others...

I. UNBOXING and INSTALLING

Unboxing the Macro Ring Flash, the cool thing is that you get the battery pack/AC cord, ring light and 5 adapters for your lenses (49 mm, 52 mm, 55 mm, 58 mm, 62 mm and 67 mm). Put two double AA Eneloops in, connected the 55 mm adapter ring to Ring Light (backside is magnetic) and then connected it to my Tokina 100mm f/2.8 AT-X M100 AF Pro D Macro lens (note: tried this light with lens on extension tube and without extension tube).

Connected the battery back to my on-camera shoe and plugged in the ring light to the battery pack.

Unlike the image which shows the Neewer name, mine didn't show Neewer anywhere on the ring light. So, be careful when you look online as the device is probably made in China and released in the US via rebranded names. Same product, different name...but get the lowest price that you can find if possible.

As for the durability, the battery pack feels a bit flimsy, so be careful when removing the battery lid and not dropping the device. It's plastic with the exception of the adapters and the magnetic backing of the ring light.

II. OUTDOOR TEST

I take a lot of pictures of wasps, butterflies, skippers and with my Macro lens...and even with the extension tube, I can get into a flower bush, inside the leaves with no problem.
