Macro ring light options

Discussion in 'Open Gear Talk' started by davect01, Nov 21, 2014.

  1. So I have a good Macro lens now and want a good ring flash

    In searching I have ones that connect to the hot shoe and ones that do not. Would my camera, (NEX-6), actually control the ring flash in any way?

    I am preferring the non-connected one, can anyone explain the difference for me.

    Dave, do you have links to the flashes you are considering? If one doesn't connect to your hotshoe, it might just be an LED ring light that is either on or off....and not actually a "flash"
  3. That makes sense.

    I'm at work, so I don't have the links handy.
