Meike Ring Flash

I would love to get a Canon ring flash for macro - mainly flowers...but the price is definitely holding me back!! I have seen Meike Ring Flash advertised for about 45.00 - has anyone tried one or heard any reports of them - would I just be wishing I had saved the 45.00 towards the Canon version!

I would be very interested in hearing about these as well. To be honest though, there isn't much in the way of positive reviews about them on the net!

I too am thinking of buying one of these for my macro work they only have a small guide number of 15 which i beleive is about the same as the pop up flashes on DSLR's but for my macro stuff surely this would be enough, and i've got them down to 35.99 in the UK

Yes, I would have thought for flowers, which is mainly what I would use it for, it should give enough light. Perhaps you could let me know where you found it for 35?? At least it would give me an idea whow a ring flash would help, rather than fork out for the Canon and find I don't really use it!
