        Comments about ExpoImaging Ray Flash 2 Universal Ring Flash Adapter (Large):

        I planned on getting the original Ray Flash. However, it was discontinued. I then discovered the Ray Flash 2. It was thinner AND cheaper. I got a chance to try it out last weekend in pitch dark with a test subject. I am pleased with the result.
        I plan to test it when there is ambient on a planned shoot in a week. I expect good things based on what I saw from my test shoot.

          I used this product with my SB900 and my Nikon D3. I was completely skeptical at first, but once I tried it, I immediately recognized the creative benefits to this adapter.Used correctly, this creates stunning and dramatic lighting effects for portraiture and macro photography.The unit is easy to attach and lightweight, yet sturdy.

          Comments about ExpoImaging Ray Flash 2 Universal Ring Flash Adapter (Large):

          This is drastically improved over the first version -
          1. Cheaper
          2. Improved feel (much more solid, plastic is thicker/stronger)
          3. More universal - each of the 2 models fit a wide variety of camera and flash combos
          4. Flatter form factor - easier to pack
          5. The light disk is slightly larger and so far has given me pleasing, slightly softer light.

          Negatives- I am not sold on the durability of the spring mechanism that locks it onto your flash head… even if this went, it'd be easy enough to strap it on with a velcro strap. And this begs for a lower support that would screw into your tripod stud and support the bottom of the ring. I rigged one up from some old parts and when mounted, it feels much better than without.

          And of course, this won't replace a 'real' ring flash in terms of power, but in almost every other way, it'll do.
