The RAYFLASH Adapter is a very affordable way to achieve typical ringflash lighting quality normally only available to studio flash equipment users!
The unique RAY FLASH Adapter was developed by a professional photographer from the Czech Republic. It was designed to be as light and as portable as possible. There are no electronics, no flashtubes and no cumbersome cables! It uses a clever system of acrylic light channels and reflectors to distribute the light emitted from the flash unit evenly around the large diameter of the ringflash adapter. This creates the same lighting effect normally only available from ringflash units made by studio flash equipment manufacturers, which are expensive, heavy and tethered (they have a cable from ringflash to power pack).
The RAY FLASH Adapter creates a very special lighting effect: a "3-d shadow-wrapped look". Because all light originates from the front, i.e. from around the lens, it produces a virtually shadow-less look on the front of your subject, while a soft even shadow appears around the edges. It is ideally suited for fashion, portrait, beauty, wedding & macro photography as a main or fill-in light.
The RAY FLASH Adapter does not change the colour temperature of the flash that powers it and the additional weight can easily be accommodated by the on-camera flash unit.
The RAY FLASH Adapter is made to fit the Canon 580EX, Canon 580EXII and Nikon SB-800, Nikon SB-900 flash units and due to the its large inner diameter the ringflash adapter will accept almost all lenses from Nikon & Canon.
This model is compatible with:
Canon 500D, 450D, 400D, 350D, 1000D
