Product Description

This Polaroid macro LED ring flash attaches to canon brand hot shoes and macro-capable lenses with mounting ring diameters between 52mm-77mm- seven adapters are included with this package. The power pack attaches to the cameras hot shoe through which all synchronizing electrical signals travel.

You can control the output level of the LEDs and select all or half of them to fire - 32 LEDs for full lighting , 16 LEDs to create purposeful shadows on three dimensional subjects. You will also be able to change from flash firing mode to constant on. Constant on will let the camera decide which exposure is best and provide continuous light when using video cameras or the HD video mode in compatible digital cameras.

A ring light is the best source for close up photography. And that makes the Polaroid macro LED ring flash the perfect choice for photographers who require shadow free illumination - perfect for medical scientific and forensic photography.

I wasn't quite ready to drop the $500 needed for the Canon ring flash, so I decided to give this a shot, mainly since it was the only "name brand" (Polaroid) ring flash (not just a ring light) that was under $100 or so. It takes 4 AA batteries. There is no battery life indicator, so I assume it'll just be a nice surprise when the batteries die, though you should probably always have some extras regardless.

Build Quality: Sturdier than you would expect. I can only compare this to my Canon Speedlite 430EX II as it's the only other external flash I own, and while the Polaroid isn't even close to that level of quality, it doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart if you accidentally bump it on something. There's a hot shoe mounting wheel that tightens against the unit to keep it from falling off the camera. The entire unit is plastic, including the adapter rings (no surprise there) and the cable connecting the power controller to the ring flash is fixed on each side, though that isn't an issue because you first screw the adapter ring to the lens, then using a quick release (just like a lens cap) you attach the light unit to the adapter.

Features: This is not a TTL flash unit, so be prepared to learn how to use this manually and get to know the light meter in your camera. My T2i, much like the other reviewer's 7D, does not recognize this unit as an external flash when attached to the hot shoe, HOWEVER, the unit does indeed function as a flash triggered off the shutter, but NOT in Live View mode (see UPDATE below). Strange, but I'm sure there's some technical reason for that. It will fire as a flash (your mileage may vary) when you're using the viewfinder.

Gee. I don't really understand what the other two reviewers are talking about, because I have a Canon 7D (Firmware v1.2.5) with a 24-105 f/4 L IS. The ring light worked right out of the box, in Live view (both Live modes, and the Quick mode) and the flash fired every time. One thing I did not do was follow the directions where they said to turn off the "internal flash" mode. I put that in quotes, because there is only flash enable. If you turn it off, the flash is off.) But all three Live settings - even the incredibly frustrating "Quick View" - work just fine. I plan on spending some time with both the ring light and my 430 EXII flash to see if I can control the 430 wirelessly along with using the ring light.

I really hope this helps clear some things up. Aside from the fact that mine works as advertised, all other aspects of the other two reviewers are right on. The "light" mode seems much brighter than the "flash" mode, it's made of plastic, etc.

[UPDATE] Dopey me. Of course I can't use both flashes together! I need the on-board camera flash in order to trigger the 430 as a slave. Using this ring light in tandem with other lights would have to be a continuous only solution. I do wish the flash was a bit brighter, though.

Doing a round of test shots, I found that using this for portraiture may present an issue. In order to properly expose the images for a human subject (with my 50mm lens set to f5 for optimal subject focus), I had to bump up my ISO to 400, as well as have the flash at full strength. Good quality images so far. Requires come more tinkering and shooting before I can land on a final decision, as I'm sure this'll be great with additional lighting and/or reflectors, but, so far, definitely seems a good buy for the price.

I just got it and took it for a spin.. I love it... I have a D300 and few lenses (but usually carry the 18-200 sigma and the 105 nikkor). I love the adapter rings and the fact that you can hold the flash in your hands or put it on a stand or else (according to the length of the cord of course). It took me few minutes to adjust between the strength of the flash light, the ISO value, and focal lens... I like the fact the light can stay on and use it for videos or else, and like that you can light the full ring or just half... From my experience, beware that if you shoot with a short focal lens (I would say below 85 mm) you will see the ring of light on your picture, and therefore if you do not post edit your pictures... then I would say... useless for you (hence my 4 star only). Again it is a macro flash that I will use to remove some unwanted shadows or when shooting outside when natural light is failing. That's it for me.

I've found that the bane of doing close-up photography in low light is shadows from the flash. Worse, often times, even if using a light meter and auto-sensors, one gets a washed-out subject. Between the shadows from the offset of the flash and the washing out, the issues with close-up photography are hard to otherwise overcome without a relatively elaborate slave flash set-up (which I do have, by the way).

For down-and-dirty, fast, relatively close up photography (6"-6') without a lot of offset flash units or creative holding of flash units to kill shadows, this thing really does a very nice job. It's bright enough to be used as a movie video light and it absolutely and completely eliminates shadowing. If you're trying to get one of those old indoor, spot-light, Super-8 effects off of this, you'll be disappointed. With the light originating from around the lens itself, there's no place for a shadow to show.

And that's the whole point of this thing - get rid of shadow.

I haven't tried it in flash mode, though. My few hundred pictures so far have all been done with the light on at various levels of illumination and taking my light readings from that. The LED's seem to produce a good color balance (the colors in the pictures look like what I see), which even in otherwise low light look good.

But again, this is for close-up work. It's not a huge distance strobe or spotlight. Beyond about six feet, there is quite a bit of light loss. Keep in mind that the light has variable illumination levels, so the further out (or closer) it is, one can compensate for the illumination and color balance up to a point, but you still have a more flexible depth of illumination than a fixed brightness light.
