an affordable ringlight....finally

I bought a Canon 60mm macro lens and wanted a lower-power ring light to use with it. While the Canon ringlight is wonderful, it is also an expensive item. This one works just fine for me with my Canon XT, XTi and Xsi bodies and is a third the price. The unit recycles fast and gives uniform illumination...it's easy to use...just screw it onto the lens and start shooting.

sometimes you get what you pay for

After 7 months the unit is now having dark spots (uneven lighting) I bought this unit in the physical store, [...] getting it instead of a MR-14EX MR-24EX due to the price and it offered the same results as the mr-14ex, I've had my reservations due to the fact of missing some extras like modeling lamp which is very helpful when focusing with an mpe65mm in more than 2x with low light, now after 7 months the unit is not giving an even output and has dead spots, I know flashes might not many yea

DRF-14 Macro Ring Flash in Southeast AK

By

I use the ring flash for macro work in perennially dark Southeast Alaska...down close to the ground...usually prone with the camera on a sand bag or mounted on a mini-tripod. The unit has functioned faithfully! There has been only one technical problem - something that might trouble other users. I backpack the unit over long distances. Considerable force is placed on the equipment. One way occasion the batteries flattened the metal contacts at the bottom of the battery wells and the flash ceased functioning. The fix, of course, was simple and did not result in down-time.

Not upto the expectations

By

Does not work at all with my Nikon D 80. Tried everything possible to make it work. All cheap & plastic and thoughtless design. [*]. Does not fulfil any of my expectation. Finally I have to trash this flash unit. I feel that I wasted my time & money for buying this useless flash unit. Eventually I purchased Metz Mecablitz MS-15 Digital Ring Flash from Adorama. Ultimately I realised that cheap things are not good & good things are not cheap !

You got what you paid for

By

Very cheap construct, back panel already came off when I open the box, very cheap and poor construct in general, but it work so far. Severe Vignette when using 50mm lens which I have no problem before with the Sigma Macro flash, but the Sigma Macro flash die on me after 1 yr and 10 months of not very heavy use. So more expensive doesn't make it better. Praying for this thing to work for me for longer time.

Works well for me

Excellent value - a fraction of the price of its competitors that I know of. I use it for dental photos and it does the job well

Never ever buy this flash unit

By

I received this flash in faulty condition. Sent emails to customer service at Adorama but no reply. I tried to show this unit at local repair service station. They say the IC of the electronic circuit is faulty. This is made in singapore flash unit. All plastic body. I regret for buying this unit from Adorama and I feel deceived.

Questions about this item:

(unknown) (  Has anyone used this with a 60D and a 100mm F2.8 macro lens?
ROBERT O  I have this flash and have used it extensively with my canon 100mm F2.8 macro lens. My camera is a 550D/T2i, not the 60D, though I believe they use the same 18.0 megapixel CMOS sensor. I have been very happy with the results and have had no complaints. A friend of mine borrowed my lens and this flash and used it on his Canon EOS 30D also with good results. It's great to be able to now get macro shots that are well lit with good depth of field.
(unknown) (  Thanks Robert, I appreciate your helpful answer. This is exactly the kind of information I was seeking. Best regards, Bill
Ed J  will this fit a canon g16?
ANDICO O  As far back as I can remember all the Canon G-series cameras take E-TTL flashes. In that case, this one is compatible. However you would need an appropriate step-up ring adapter for the front end of the G16 so that this flash can screw onto the G16, e.g. the Canon LA-DC58L. That said, this DRF-14 macro ring flash is definitely "you get what you pay for" territory. Mine had a loose battery spring (from the store!) which makes turning it on a hit-and-miss proposition. So unless there are no other options, the Canon macro flashes such as the MR-14EX (at five times the price) is a much better choice.
