Turn your flashgun into a ring-flashGet results like thisPress release:
Flaghead Photographic have launched the ringflash adapter to fit Canon
580EX and Nikon SB800 flash units. This unique product was
developed by a professional photographer from the Czech
Republic. It uses a clever system of internal prisms and
reflectors to distribute the light emitted from the flash unit evenly
around the large diameter of the ringflash adapter.
The ringflash adapter creates a very special lighting effect: a
“3-D shadow-wrapped look”. Because all
light originates from the front, ie from around the lens, it produces a
virtually shadowless look on the front of your subject, while a soft,
even shadow appears around the edges. It is ideally suited
for fashion, portrait and beauty images as a main light or fill-in.
Due to it’s large inner diameter (143mm), the ringflash
adapter will work with all lenses from Canon & Nikon.
Exposure control is easy with Canon or Nikon cameras (or
their derivatives): all TTL functions and manual mode work as usual.
It is of course possible to use the Canon 580EX and the Nikon SB800
with other camera brands in manual mode. By using a simple hot-shoe
adapter with a standard synchronisation lead and improvising a suitable
way of mounting the flash to the camera. The ringflash adapter is a
very affordable way to achieve typical ringflash lighting quality
normally only available to studio flash equipment users.
