  • works well - but be warned

    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 anything above 58mm will have this problem, so keep that in mind when buying it.

    It's not a deal breaker if you're just using it for macro photography, since you could crop the images. For my case I was going to use it as a light for filming, so it doesn't work out so well.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    I bought this for my 17-50 77mm lens, so it's kind of a let down, but I'm happy with my purchase either way.

    For such a niffy little light ~40 dollars is worth it's short comings.
