Ray Flash Ring Flash Adapter, Canon580EX,MKII,5D,40D,30D 20D
Flaghead Ray Flash Ring Flash Adapter, Canon580EX,MKII,5D,40D,30D 20DThe RAC170-2 Ringflash Adapter 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 accept almost all lenses from small, medium and large format cameras. Exposure control is easy: using either Canon or Nikon cameras (or their derivatives) all TTL functions are operational as usual, as well as manual mode. It is of course possible to use the Canon 580EX and the Nikon SB800 in manual mode with other camera brands by using a simple hot-shoe adapter, which provides 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.
