Portable and Lightweight:
The Ray Flash Universal Ring Flash Adapter was designed as a portable and lightweight ringflash solution for any hot-shoe flash unit (speedlite), the RAY FLASH replicates the unique lighting effect produced by heavy, tethered, high-powered and very expensive studio ringflash units.
Beautiful Shadowless Look:
Because the Ray Flash Universal Ring Flash Adapter light originates from a circle around the camera lens, the RAY FLASH creates a distinctive lighting effect, producing a virtually shadowless look on the front of the subject, while leaving a soft, even shadow around the edges which are only visible when the subject is close to a light colored background. It creates a very special lighting effect: a "3D shadow-wrapped look" making it well suited for Fashion, Wedding, Portrait, Press, PR, Events and macro photography, as a main or fill-in light.

Hot-shoe Flash Generates Light:
The Ray Flash Universal Ring Flash Adapter relies on the hot-shoe flash (speedlite) to generate its light and automatically takes advantage of a camera's TTL metering capabilities. The adapter easily slides over the front of a camera's flash unit and locks into place for easy, secure use. It contains no electronics, batteries or flash tubes and does not require any cumbersome cables.
The Ray Flash Universal Ring Flash Adapter does not change the color temperature of the flash that powers it and the additional weight can easily be accommodated by the on-camera flash unit.
DSLR cameras with TTL functions operate as usual, as well as manual mode. In MANUAL control of the exposure is by use of a light meter or through test-shots on a digital camera.
The RAY FLASH RING is very efficient and the loss of light is surprisingly low.
O-Ring Flash Head Position Lock:
Flash head joints (i.e. the neck that allows movement in the upper part of the flash unit/speedlite) vary slightly in the angle of their orientation relative to your camera's body. If your flash head sags down slightly when fitted with the Ray Flash, fit the enclosed black, rubber O-Ring into the joint until the Ray Flash is parallel with the camera body and the face of the lens. These O-Rings have Four different thickness sections to suit any flash unit.
