5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT well woth the money!, January 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Neewer 48 Marco LED Ring Light with 6 Adapter Rings (49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm or 67mm) for Macro Canon/Nikon/Sony/Sigma/Tamron Lens (Camera)
I was expecting just to use this for close up beauty/product shots but it really came in handy when I played around with it at night and I think I may buy another to use on a stand. I included a shot I took of a friend using just the light it was dark the sun was just about gone.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't think you'll be disappointed, April 28, 2010

It does what it says, basically. Some of my rechargeable batts will work with it and others won't. That may be related to the shape of the battery contacts.

Having constant illumination is great for focusing, plus it allows you to choose higher shutter speeds instead of aperture if that suits your purpose.

The battery life is decent, but as you shoot if you're tracking insects etc. you may leave it on to be ready at a moment's notice. You may not notice your batteries are draining and you're not getting much out of it. But gee, they included an AC adapter and if you're doing indoor macro stuff, that's a fantastic accessory to have. That more than offsets the downside IMO.

Being so lightweight, it doesn't seem to tax my kit lens's AF motor at all. The only real downside I have seen is that reflections of the ring light may be broken or jagged. That is, instead of a clean circle of light reflecting off a water droplet, you may see individual LEDs... Read more

This review is from: Neewer 48 Marco LED Ring Light with 6 Adapter Rings (49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm or 67mm) for Macro Canon/Nikon/Sony/Sigma/Tamron Lens (Camera)
This unit comes with 6 adapters [49mm, 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, and 67mm). The adapters screw into the end of your lens or filter. For me I tested it on my T1i's 18-55mm Kit lens, screwing into my Hoya 58mm UV filter with no problem. The Ring flash then slides over the adapter. The ring attaches to the battery pack (uses 2AA) which itself attaches to your hotshoe (a little loosely but I had no problems) On the battery pack you can choose Off/Battery/ or DC Plug (provided). On the ring light you can choose between Full/Right/Left to determine which LEDs light, either all or half. Obviously the ring can be rotated so that it you can light only Top/Bottom or almost any angle. The LEDs are Bright -I was surprised and impressed. As stated in other reviews they will reflect in reflective surfaces such as Glass/water/eyes. Since I tested them on an EF-s lens which spins the end of the lens to focus I did notice that the ring would turn, however it is easy to hold in place or reposition - I... Read more
