Comments about Adorama Adorama DRF-14 Macro Ring Flash Dedicated for Nikon iTTL Digital Cameras:

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

Comments about Adorama Adorama DRF-14 Macro Ring Flash Dedicated for Nikon iTTL Digital Cameras:

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 !

Comments about Adorama Adorama DRF-14 Macro Ring Flash Dedicated for Nikon iTTL Digital Cameras:

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.

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.
