The Bolt VM-110 LED Macro Ring Light is a compact LED ring light that is ideal for use when photographing close-up subject matter. It features a 48 LED array and has an effective working distance of 4.9' / 1.49m with a guide number of 15' / 4.57m (ISO 100). The continuous light source helps you easily see the effects of the lighting and also enables its use when recording video. Four clip-on diffusers are included to further adjust the quality of light from the ring light: clear, frosted, amber, and blue. The brightness can also be modified, from -1.5 EV to + 1.5EV, and you can set the light to illuminate from only the left or right side for added dimensionality when shooting. Additionally, to help conserve battery power, the light can be set to work in flash mode, which will turn on the light for approximately a half second each time the shutter is released.

The power unit features a 2" / 5.1cm backlit LCD monitor for displaying battery power and ring light settings. It attaches to your camera via an accessory shoe and requires 4x AA batteries. A stand is also included to hold the power unit on its own, or on a light stand or tripod via the integrated 1/4"-20 socket. For mounting the ring light to your lens, eight different adapter rings are included to fit a range of lens diameters: 49, 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, and 77mm.

LED ring light is universal in design and independent of any specific TTL system. It is compatible with most DSLR lenses and ideal for macro and close-up shooting applications.
48 LED array provides an effective working distance of 4.9' / 1.49m with a guide no. of 15' / 4.57m (ISO 100).
Four clip-on diffusers are included: clear, frosted, amber, and blue.
Four light modes available:
  • Light Mode will keep the light on continuously.
  • Flash Mode will activate the light for approximately one half second at a time when the shutter is depressed; this will help conserve battery power.
  • Left and Right Modes will set only the left or right half of the light to turn on in order to give more dimensionality to your subject matter.
  • An automatic power-saving function will turn off the ring light after 30 minutes of inactivity to conserve battery power.
    2" / 5.1cm backlit LCD provides visual display of battery life and light settings.
    Coiled power cord connects ring light to power unit; 10" / 25.4cm relaxed, 24" / 61cm stretched.
    Includes eight adapter rings to fit a range of lens diameters: 49, 52, 55, 58, 62, 67, 72, and 77mm.

    It really shines when you're very close to the subject. The catchlights are tiny but visible. It's best to use the ringflash freehand, meaning that instead of mounting it directly around the lens, you hold it slightly above the subject or wherever you want to fill the shadows. It lights up pretty well, actually. The device itself is so simple, it's fool-proof. Some might prefer more options but it has all that you need to start quickly: adapters for lenses of every diameter and diffuers (cold, warm, and neutral). You can use this flash as a continuous light, flash, left flash, and right flash. My only complaint is that the light output is a bit limited.

    Tempted by the price and no reviews good or bad at the time of purchase, I gave it a try. Kind of flimsy construction might be ok, but with 77mm lenses, I lost at least 15% of the image frame at all four corners to the glow of the ring light it self. May be better with smaller diameter lenses or less than a wide angle perspective. Off camera could be a doable option, but kind of defeats the whole purpose...

        This light came with soooooo many adapters to fit every possible lens that you could think of. We use it for close ups of small products for a catalog. Love the steady on option or the flash. Works very well, and I would recomend it to others.

            Comments about Bolt VM-110 LED Macro Ring Light:

            They got me, looks cool, fits well... I bought the best AA batteries for electronics and in a few minutes they were dead.
            My friend suggested rechargeable batteries, I told him I have tons of gear here- baby sitting a battery farm for one device is a job in itself. The light that comes off of it is only average at best.
            It was unfortunate as I was really excited about it, but you can only get a few pics off before it's already dead.
            The other issue was there's a lot of bulk to deal with and in your way, which if it worked well- I would have dealt with it... but still would have been an issue.

                    Even though it comes with adaptors for up to 77 mm, the center opening of this ring light is much smaller than this. Won't be able to use it on most of my lenses, especially my macro.

                        It is a nice product but with all my lenses being 67mm there is a lot of corner blockage. I get almost circular pictures was not expecting that. Other wise the flash is really easy to mount and it does fill in light where other flashes may not.

                              *Forward: This is my first ring light purchase so I am not able to compare it to any similar items*

                              I was able to pick this item up during a sale and for the price that I got it at I am pleased. The versatility of the the luminance, filters, and lens attachments (for differing lens sizes) is convenient. It's lightweight and portable, albeit the trade off is that it doesn't provide a sense of durability. Probably not ideal for heavy use and more apt for the casual photographer looking to explore with lighting for macro and close-up photography. For anything more serious I would recommend looking for something a bit more solid.

                              Works as expected but, it is weak on power must be really close for it to be effective. Other than the power issue everything else works as you would like so the 3 stars.

                                      I plan on using it for copy work. So far it is doing ok. The light is made up of very cheap plastic but if I don't get rough with it it should be ok. If it ever fails I will definately look for a more robust model.

                                          This ring light is very good value for the money. It is not powerful, but adequate for most flower photography. It mounts easily and is simple to use.

                                          The ring light is easy to use. It comes with a full set of adapters for use with different lenses. However, with a GN of only 12, this ring light produces insufficient light, especially when other diffusers are used.

                                                I've used all kinds of ring flashes and macro flashes over the years, some costing thousands of dollars and some several hundred. You usually get what you pay for in life. LEDs for continuouslighting is battery efficient. Yes this seems "flimsy" but for the extremely low price, if you are gentle with it (like I am with even moreso with expensive gear. If you are doing close up macro work, and using a tripod, this should do the job. If you're NOT using a tripod, get an expensive ring flash instead.

                                                  As others have mentioned in their reviews, the VM-110's construction is plastic, but it's not as flimsy as I feared it might be. I didn't experience any trouble with the adapter threads, but I was being careful. Those photographers who have need of a robust tool for frequent pro-amateur/commercial usage will likely be disappointed; however, my use will only be occasional. I purchased this as a BHPhoto sale item, and for the price, I think it's perfect for me. It fits both of my Fuji cameras: an X-S1 and the new X30. I do get a bit of vignetting, as the ring light is rather deep, but I only need to zoom in a small amount. The light, even with just the frosted lens, it a nice crisp white, not the bluish tone that I was expecting. The flash function works, but I need to jockey with the camera settings in order to get a proper exposure, as this unit is not TTL. I am currently using Sanyo eneloop rechargeable batteries, and it seems to keep a charge for an acceptable length of time, though I haven't used the VM-110 for longer than about 20 minutes at a time. All in all, I think it's good (for my use) for its relatively low price, especially if it can be had on sale.
