The Flashmate LED RingFlash from GiSTEQ is a compact LED ring light for Canon digital SLR cameras. The light uses a 60-LED array to light up the subject with either flash for still photography or continuous light for video. It has a distance range of 4.9' with a 60° angle of coverage.
The RingFlash features four modes for shooting: full, flash, left, and right modes. A full mode provides the continuous illumination that is necessary for shooting video. The full mode can also be used as a modeling light to check how your images will turn out before you take a picture. The flash mode features a sync speed of approximately 1/200 of a second and twice the power output of the full mode. Also, there are left and right modes which allow the usage of just one side of the RingFlash at a time for more creative lighting designs.
A few different accessories are included with the RingFlash. A translucent diffuser makes the light soft and even, essential in macro or close-up photography. The power unit utilizes a wheel to control brightness and attaches to the camera via an accessory shoe. It has a built-in mount for attaching the light. 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.
