Major Upgrade to an Important Tool


from Mohnton, PA

I've upgraded from the original ringlight (HVL-RLAM) to this much more powerful unit. I use it the same way, that is macro / technical photos. As with the earlier unit, I modified the hot shoe adapter to make the control unit .5" or so lower to the camera. Very useful and flexable tool.
