The Ring Flash Adapter is a reflective circle that attaches to the front of your external flash. It requires no batteries or cords because it uses the flash you already have.

Not only does this give your photos a soft, even glow, but it also gives you a studio quality look without expensive and difficult equipment.

Portraits come to life in this flattering light. Plus, awesome halos will appear in the subjects eyes… and not just because they’re wowed by your photographic prowess!

Will the Ring Flash Adapter fit on my flash/around my lens?

The adapter comes with an adjustable nylon velcro strap that fits around the front of any external flash. We recommend taking a few measurements to make sure your equipment will fit. Here’s how to do it: You’ll need a ruler and your camera with its flash and lens attached. Make sure the head of your flash is pointing straight ahead (not at the ceiling or at an angle).
1. Measure your the diameter of your lens. If the diameter is less than 4.3″ then you’re in check.
2. Measure from the center of your flash to the bottom of your lens. This is to make sure your flash isn’t too tall to clear the lens. The Ring Flash Adapter is 7″ long from the center of its flash attachment to its bottom ring. If the measurement you just took is less than 7″ — we’re in business.

So how do I use this thing?

Make sure your external flash is connected to your DSLR’s hot shoe. Then strap the Ring Flash Adapter to the front of your external flash with the velcro strap. Slip it over your lens, and you’re good to go.

Is this going to juice the batteries in my external flash?

Nope! All it does is redirect the light from your flash. It then fills the circular tube with light and diffuses it. No extra power needed because it’s just taking what you’ve already got, and turning it into something different. Pretty smart eh?

And you should see what a ring flash costs! This little adapter gives the same result, at a fraction of the cost!
