    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:A lot of light and a lot of adapter rings, so it fits on most common lenses up to 77mm.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:The light is surprisingly bright I would gauge that it's consistent up to 3 feet. Which for a macro light isn't something you'd expect. Bonus! easy to operate. Cons:Even though it'll fit up to a 77mm lens you'll get a silhouette of the unit around the edges. It seems anyt...
