    Sunpak auto pro 16R ringflash and Sunpak Bmacro ringflash are 2 similar units in the same price range. Which of the 2 is better and why?

    Micro Bulb. Had a few minutes so I set up my bellows and shot the bulb out of my mini Maglite, it is only 2mm in diameter and trying to get everything set up, in focus and lit correctly just goes to show this micromacro lark is harder than it seem...

    Gear Train. A close up of a gear from work, when looking at it normaly there seems little or no damage, but when taken with a good macro lens, it becomes apparent, damage has occured. Taken with my Sigma 150 macro and ringflash, handheld.

    Bellows and Time Took another shot using the hand held bellows set up and its blooming hard to get everything in focus at this level, so looks like some photostacking is needed, never the less a shot of my watch bezel, shows how much damage it sho...

    Macro. This believe it or not is a small screw, you can tell the difference between a screw and a bolt by the length of thread, a screw goes all the way along its length a bolt is only threaded part way, 3 times its own diameter. Anyway, this is a 4...

    40 - 365

    The number 40, well 40cm to be precise. I haven't really tried my ring flash out much since I finished building it, so I have had a bit of a play today. I decided to take some shots in a pitch black room and see how things come out. This was taken on...

    Completed ringflash

    As promised, a picture of the completed flash mounted on camera (forgot to set camera phone to colour DOH) but you get the picture, extremely lightweight, no interference with the lens barrel, complete compatability with the speedlight and it works, ...

    Just taken delivery

    Just had the posty knock the door and my long awaited Xenon ring flash tube has arrived, 32 quid for 100mm dia, 800ws output tube, now the fun starts. I have many ideas in my head of how to house and mount this, but it all seems to alter once you s...

    Mk2 test

    A couple of images to show how the ringflash is coming on. The first is taken with the SB-600, iTTL hand held using Sigma 150 macro lens. The second is using the ring flash coupled to the SB-600 iTTL. A marked difference, there is still a bit of shad...

    Mk2

    Just finished the conversion of my SB-600 speedlight, well just tested really. I have mounted a small box on top of the flash head, fitted a 6 pin socket to it with 6 wires going into the flash head, these have been connected to the trigger and flash...

    Ring Flash Mk2

    After completing my first ring flash, I found it to big and cumbersome to be used succesfully in the field, plus the speedlight I used was rather old and basic, so exposing for shots is a hit and miss affair, OK if its still life but for bugs and stu...

    Episode 21

    I recently spent my second day in the studio with a new model called Lee. When Lee's shoot was over it was Ruby's turn and we played with the studio's ringflash which was fun. I've now added some angle brackets and white brollies to my portable f...
