Expo Imaging Announces Ray Flash Ring Flash Adapter

Expo Imaging Ray Flash Ring Flash Adapter

ExpoImaging Inc. has introduced the Ray Flash: The Ring Flash Adapter. Designed as a portable and lightweight adapter for a hot-shoe flash unit, the Ray Flash replicates the unique lighting effect produced by heavy, tethered, powered studio ring flash units.

This ring flash adapter attaches directly to the camera’s hot shoe flash, with current models designed to fit the Canon 580EX (MKI & MKII) and Nikon SB800 flash units. With a 4 1/8″ internal diameter, the adapter is large enough to accept almost all professional lenses from both Canon and Nikon.

Because the ring flash 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. The versatile adapter is ideally suited for fashion, wedding, portrait, journalist and macro photography, as either a main or fill-in light.

The Ray Flash retails for $299 through photo dealers in the U.S.
