Orbis ENLORB1A Overview

The Orbis Ring Flash is designed to affix onto the front of a common shoe-mount flash and is suspended around the circumference of a lens. The Orbis does not produce light independently, rather it is a light modification device that produces an effect similar to studio ring flashes usually costing ten times the price of the Orbis.

A ring flash is one of the best ways to light for a still-life, portrait, or macro shoot. Its effect is unmistakable and very distinct.

As a flash attachment, the Orbis requires a shoe mount flash and a PC cord, off-camera cord, or wireless flash trigger.
Lens port diameter is 86mm so most SLR lenses are compatible. Orbis must be hand-held.
Designed for portability, the Orbis packs neatly into a camera bag and is a fraction of the bulk and weight of a traditional studio ring flash and power supply.
As of this writing, the Orbis Ring Flash has been tested with the following: Canon 300TL, 420EX, 430EX, 540EZ, 550EX, 580EX I and II, Nikon SB28, SB600, SB800, SB900, Cosmos 360, Vivitar 283, Olympus FL36R, FL50, Sunpak PF30X and 5000, Sony F56, Minolta 5200 and Sigma 500, Metz 48 and Metz 58 and Pentax AF540. See manufacturer's website for up-to-date list.

Nice Soft Light Modifier

I have MANY light modifiers, but this is now the modifier I grab if taking photos of my kids / family indoors using one speedlite off camera. Provides a nice soft light that wraps around the subject avoiding the harsh shadows you usually get using one external speedlite. Love the circular catch light in the eyes! However, it IS awkward and bulky to use. And you DO need to set ISO to 400, AND suggest bumping up flash exposure compensation if shooting 5 or more feet from your subject (anything past 4 feet and it becomes more like a small softbox instead of a ring flash). Also works well for small product and macro photography. Overall I am quite happy with the product, but it has its limitations.

Outstanding accessory!

I've only shot with this for two photo shoots so far, but I'm already hooked. The ease of use is great, and the effect of it's diffused light is perfection. It's everything I'd hoped it would be. It is a little bulky when it comes to taking up storage space, as well as transportation to venues, but the end result is well worth it and makes up for any little inconvenience like that.

More Pain Than Gain

Portraiture, Macro, Heavy, bulky. The results can be beautiful, but, away from a studio, it's pain to walk around with. keeps falling off speedlight.

I have purchased multiple flash attachments, Gary Phong diffuser, and some other unmentionable attachments. This is by far the best flash diffuser I own. The light it puts out is amazing. No harsh shadows can be seen when using this ring flash. I am using it with Canon's 430 ex ii and it performs great.

Decent - As Expected

I saw a few online tutorials about using this light shaper. And I thought for the price it was something I could use from time to time. In all honesty, I like it for what it is. I wish it was a little more stable & less flimsy. You definitely need the mounting bracket! Otherwise its too hard to hold in place over the lens! Even with the mounting bracket, you still need to hold it in place which is the only problem I have with it. Again, its just not stable. But it works well. The light quality is very soft and gives that ring-flash look.

question

Will it fit well with a Canon t5i? And what type of flash will be best to use with?
Asked by: Teresa A.
The Orbis ring flash will accommodate pretty much any speedlight of medium or large size, including a Lumopro LP180 or Canon 550EX. The fit is not glove tight , but is adequate for most needs. A bit of gaffer tape may help to improve fitment, with the flash head adjusted to the vertical position. Large and bulky, it will probably work best off-camera, using a 3' or 6' coiled TTL remote cord, or other remote trigger. It will work fine with the Canon t5i, or any other camera, just not attached to an on-camera flash.
