Good for catch lights – MEIKE 5500K 32-LED White Macro Ring Flash Light for Canon DSLR (4 x AA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap Batteries last a long time Good power for LEDs A breeze to pop on and off Good build quality
Cons:
Not strong enough for macro key lighting Diffusion is not great so you see lots of little dots
Other:
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 great for giving a little extra light in an unusual fashion. If you want to use this hand held on a camera as a key light, you better get ready to crank that iso button up.
Bottomline:
It creates some cool lighting and is nice and cheap. Worth the money, but not going to freeze subjects like a flash.
