The Rayflash Ringflash Adapter long turns your DSLR's existing hotshoe mounted flashgun into a ringflash at a fraction of the cost of a stand-alone system. The Universal Ringflash utilises the light from your existing flashgun and bends it through the circular Ringflash and around the lens of a DSLR. The light produced is much softer and more enveloping than that of an on-camera flashgun, reducing the size and directionality of background shadows. This unique effect ensures that Ringflash units are enormously popular with portrait, fashion, wedding and macro photographers. To identify which model RayFlash (short or long) you need, measure the distance from your flash to the optical axis. The long model is designed for use with flashguns where the distance between the optical axis and the middle of the flash reflector is between 175 and 190mm.
The RayFlash Universal Ringflash Adapter
Product demonstration video:
The Universal Ringflash Adapter relies on the hot-shoe flash (speedlite) to generate its light and automatically takes advantage of a camera’s TTL metering capabilities. The adapter easily slides over the front of a camera’s flash unit and locks into place for easy, secure use. It contains no electronics, batteries or flash tubes and does not require any cumbersome cables.
The Universal Ringflash Adapter will expand your photographic horizons, simplify many aspects of your work, give great results from the first time that you use it and makes your images look truly professional.
There are almost no restrictions to using any DSLR brands, it works with all DSLR cameras and flash units. To identify which of the two RayFLash Universal models you need, please refer to the compatibility list on our website or those of our distributors.
The Universal Ringflash Adapter was designed as a portable and lightweight ringflash solution for any hot-shoe flash unit (speedlite), the RAY FLASH replicates the unique lighting effect produced by heavy, tethered, high-powered and very expensive studio ringflash units.
Because the Universal Ringflash Adapter light originates from a circle around the camera lens, the RAY FLASH creates a distinctive lighting effect, producing a virtually shadowless look on the front of the subject, while leaving a soft, even shadow around the edges which are only visible when the sunbject is close to a light coloured background. It creates a very special lighting effect: a "3-d shadow-wrapped look", making it well suited for Fashion, Wedding, Portrait, Press, PR, Events and macro photography, as a main or fill-in light.
For product compatibility, please see the Ringflash Adapter Compatibility Chart. Please note, this chart is only a guide and it ultimately depends on what flashgun you are using to determine compatiblity. Please measure the distance from your flash to the optical axis.
