Before finding this flash, I tried bouncing external SB600 flash off ceilings, and also tried various diffusers like Gary Fong's Puffer and Light-Sphere to soften shadows, but the exposure is much weaker and harder to get it right that way.. This works very well for intra-oral dental and macro photos. Works great, TTL and everything, on Nikon D90. Came with bunch of adapter rings, but did not need it for a 18-55mm Nikkor lens. Build quality is okay. It's all plastic and feels very light, but very well made for the price.

Update: lasted only a year and a half. I've upgraded to a Sigma.

SO I was in need of a cheap ETTL ringflash to use with my NIkon D5000. I already have a lester dine ringflash for another one of my lenses and was tired of switching the ring flash. This flash comes ready to go out of the box. It had a seamless control thru my camera settings eliminating the need to work thru seperate numbers on the flash itself. saved me time energy and effort. So all in all its twho thumbs up! Highly recommended for thoswe users who are new to DSLRs and require a ring flash.

Phoenix Smart Flash RF46N Macro Ring Flash Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

The flash unit is easy to use, and gives a flat, shadowless result. It is a bit bulky, but once the camera is installed in a tripod, the system is very reliable to use. It syncs well with the D80.

I took the chance on this macro flash as price was good compare to other name brand ones ( Sigma, Nikon...). Oh boy I was presently surprice when I opened the box. The built is decent and it worked flawlessly out of the box. It came with different sizes of adapter rings for most conventional micro lenses. It provided excellent lighting for all my micro shots.
I use this flash with Nikon D80 & Sigma 105mm F2.8 macro lens

I would hightly recommmended this flash to anyone who is on a budget.

I wanted a ring flash to take pictures of some items I wanted to sell on eBay. My regular hotshoe flash left harsh shadows. This model serves the purpose, but it is not built well. I would recommend it for the amateur, but not a semi professional or the more demanding user. The plastic is thin, the rotating ring that attaches to your lens does not rotate easily, and the battery compartment is very tight, so you may have to fiddle with the batteries to get them to make good contact. It doesn't compete with the more expensive units from Canon or Nikon, but costs far less, so I can't complain. You don't need a powerful unit for close-ups.

Adorama communicated by sending emails of order and shipment, and sent the product promptly, so no complaints there.

Works very well with my Nikon D80, compared to Sigma ring flash the results are quite the same but the price difference is huge ! I use it with a Sigma 105mm f2.8 Macro ans the results are amazing. It's provided with 3 adaptation rings.
Important: very usefull for dentistry photos!

Very light and works good but kind of cheap feeling. I don't think that affects it's performance though. I bought it to use while taking macro shots and it works fine for that. I would buy it again if it I needed one.

Well it was a nice experiment while it lasted.

Used on only two occasions and while with enough fiddling with the exposure compensation the lighting was pretty good but by the second outing it began a peculiar little characteristic. I am using this with a Nikon D90 and when the camera would shut down the displays to conserve battery life the flash would completely lock out the circuitry of the camera requiring you to recycle the power on the camera in order to shoot another frame. It did this regardless of whether the flash was powered on or not and my local Nikon dealer warned that this could over time potentially damage the circuitry in the camera. Sorry Phoenix it's not an acceptable risk or a workable situation either so it's going back.
