Extraordinary in this test, the Orbis Ringflash Adapter is a flashgun connection that channels the blaze yield into a ring of light.

The ‘one size fits most’ outline essentially openings onto a standard flashgun, which must be utilized off camera – so you’ll require an off-camera rope (none is supplied) or shoot the blaze as a remote slave.

Not at all like the other ring flashes on test, the Orbis doesn’t fit specifically to your lens; rather you slide the ring over your lens (the focal opening is 86mm, so it will effectively fit a mixed bag of lenses) and hold the flashgun in position with your left hand, which is a bit fiddly.

On the other hand, there’s an embellishment arm that interfaces the glimmer to the camera, however this expenses an extra £49.

Our early introductions of the Orbis was the way lumbering it looked and fiddly it was to assemble. Taking care of the demonstrated precarious, even with the guide of the Orbis arm, as we didn’t have an extra hand to physically center our 100mm full scale lens, and we absolutely wouldn’t have the capacity to utilize this with our MP-E 65mm lens.

In spite of that it did produce a pleasant even light, yet it’s more suited to picture photography.

The Orbis at first appears to be great worth for cash on the off chance that you need to try ring blaze photography out, however unless you effectively own a flashgun and an off camera line or trigger it does all signify a significant sum in case you’re beginning sans preparation.
