    Light construction but does the job. Useful for close up work probably need the bigger model if you are using it for portraits. But for macro fotos it works well.

    I'm not a Pro but fairly experienced, Not the most powerful light but for Entry level, Hobbyist or learning experience a great tool. Ring gives even light. Adapter Rings are plastic and must be handled with care. Left/Right operation is good, BUT, it only functions as a steady source not a L or R Flash. Overall a good tool, a better value when you see it on sale.

    Use it for macro or close up photography on combination with studio lighting makes a perfect combination to add some contrast. Obviously this is an inexpensive item but it does the job.

    question

    Does this product support a specific brand, such as Canon, or any camera with a hot shoe? Thanks.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Being that this is a continuous light, and not a flash/strobe TTL is of no issue here. TTL only pertains to flashes and strobes. Using this device would be essentially the same as working under any other natural light source such as the sun or a lamp etc. You can set your camera to program modes or manual modes to expose with whichever you prefer and it will render great results. The only cameras the device would not be able mount the base to are the Sony Alpha and older Minolta cameras with the special Sony/Minolta shoe.

    Is this compatible with fuji x-t10?
    Asked by: Joshua S.
    Yes, this is compatible with the Fuji X-T10 but still depends on the lens that you use. It will include 8 x Adapter Rings (49, 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, and 77mm).

    question

    Do you have the Minolta/Sony adapter for this ringlight? Will it just slide into the Sony A99 accessory shoe?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    No adapter is required if you are using the Sony A99 which features the new Sony Multi-Interface shoe (which is different from the older special Sony/Minolta shoe). The flash will slide right onto the Sony A99s shoe. If you have an older Minolta/Sony camera with their special shoe, you would need the following adapter:http://bhpho.to/108mxYG

    question

    Could this be used with a Lensbaby Scout fisheye? Or a Lensbaby Composer?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Lensbaby Scout fisheye does not have any filter threads plus it is too wide. There is nothing to attach the ring flash to and it will vignette on that lens. The Lens baby composer has a filter thread of 37mm so you can with a step up ring use the flash.The step up ring is, http://bhpho.to/1cvm3Ir*note the weight of the ring flash will be on the lens so it will be tough to keep the Lensbaby composer in position.

    Are there any 82mm Adaptor Ring to use for the Canon 24-70mm lens?
    Asked by: Alex
    The kit I have does not have an 82mm ring. The Bolt VM-110 isn't quite that big. I like the unit, it has served me well. You can't expect to much from it but for occasional close up work, it gets the job done for a very low cost!
