    features of left, right half , continuous light, dimmability are good. I tried it on a 50mm lens with a long extension tube and it does a good work also at a centimeter from the object. On first sight battery door looks like a problem, but for now they work very well. Anyway, it would be better to be gentle with it. Second, light could be brighter. ... Read more

    All things works fine Good ergonomy / easy to use All/Right/Left bank setting for shadow plays All functions works as you expected Powered by 4xAA batteries (as many other flash lights) Not so high light output, but for small things far enough Suprisingly works fine. Built quality is quite good and ergonomy is good as well. Suitable for any amateur ... Read more

    Good product, very well made, good quality and solid material. Recycle time is great, and there isn’t any noise (I saw much more expensive flashes that make more noises then light). It is great flash for macro photography, or even close up portrait. Bigger distance requires bigger flash (and more money). Price for this flash is more than fair. On first ... Read more

    features of left, right half , continuous light, dimmability are good. I tried it on a 50mm lens with a long extension tube and it does a good work also at a centimeter from the object. a bit noisy when the continuous light is reduced of power. some difficulties to close the battery door with the batteries on. plastic is light but it is ok for the price ...

    A lot of light and a lot of adapter rings, so it fits on most common lenses up to 77mm. I found no vignetting on the 50mm lenses till now, and battery life is more than reasonable MEIKE 5500K 32-LED White Macro Ring Flash Light for Canon DSLR (4 x AA) has good built quality although it's plastic sometimes a bit of reflection onto the lens It is a bit ...

    Works both as a flash (shutter button activated) and constant light. White colour to my eye. I needed to remove my UV filter to get the mounting ring threaded to the lens. But after that, very easy to put on and take off. Multiple levels of brightness Shame I cant put a filter on as well as the mounting ring. The mounting ring is plastic, so I gather ... Read more

    Cheap Batteries last a long time Good power for LEDs A breeze to pop on and off Good build quality Not strong enough for macro key lighting Diffusion is not great so you see lots of little dots I take lots of bug macros and I Bought this thinking I would be able to light up macro subjects, but LEDs are no where near the power of flash. It does work ... Read more

    easy to use simple to attach fits to all sizes of lenses light can be on for video Well built lightweight batteries last relatively long almost white light missing flash defuser 77mm lens you'll get a silhouette aroud the edges. Never expected that this ~$40 would give me this much satisfaction. I only miss some defuser to make the light a little bit ... Read more
