Primeras impresiones con el Ray Flash, originally uploaded by .:fotomaf:..

Me encantan los flash de anillo (o beauty dish, como alguno le llaman) y tengo el ojo echado en el Alien Bee ABR800. ¿Problema? que el precio de la unidad es de unos 399$, que lleva voltaje americano y que para sacarlo de paseo hay que comprar una unidad de energia portable por otros 300$. No dudo, para nada, que la calidad de la luz de un flash de estas características sería mucho mejor que este Ray Flash, pero como estimo que no voy a darle uso continuo, he preferido gastarme mucho menos (199$) en este “invento” sin saber muy bien cómo iba a funcionar.

El caso es que este adaptador no pesa prácticamente nada y encaja a la perfección en mi 580 EX II (abajo tenéis un link con la página de producto, porque hay diferentes acabados según cámara/flash) La medición eTTL prometen que no se ve afectada, así como la temperatura de color. El aparato en si no es más que un difusor pasivo, no hay luces extra ni nada parecido, y sorprende mucho que no haya perdida de luz aparente con su uso…

The two images below were taken to demonstrate the lighting effect produced by the Ray Flash for close-up portraits.  The image on the left was taken using a bare flash.  The image on the right was taken using the Ray Flash.  The camera settings are the same.  Note the difference in the skin, shadow and specular highlights.

What is the Ray Flash Ringflah Adapter?

The Ray Flash (U.S. and international patents pending) is a unique adapter for your hot-shoe flash unit designed to replicate the lighting effect produced by traditional, expensive, and heavy powered studio ring light units.

The Ray Flash is portable and lightweight, and has been designed to take advantage of a camera’s TTL metering capabilities.  Because the Ray Flash relies on the hot-shoe flash to generate its light, it contains no electronics, no flash tubes and requires no cumbersome cables.  The light distribution is accomplished through a sophisticated system of internal light-shapers designed to distribute and project the light evenly around the lens.

The Ray Flash creates the distinctive ring light effect:  a three-dimensional shadow-wrapped look around the subject.  Because ring flash light originates from a circle around the lens, it produces a virtually shadowless look on the front of your subject, while producing a soft even shadow around the edges. The versatile Ray Flash is ideally suited for fashion, wedding, portrait, journalist and macro photography as either a main or fill light.

Weighing just 13-14 oz, the Ray Flash is lightweight and is easily supported by hot-shoe mounted flash units. The 4 1/8” internal diameter of the Ray Flash is large enough to accept almost all professional lenses from Nikon & Canon.

The Ray Flash is specifically designed for the Canon 580EX (I & II), Nikon SB800 and Nikon SB900 flash units.  However, existing Ray Flash models will also fit older Nikon flash units, including the SB24, SB26 and SB600, as well as selected flash units from Sony, Metz, Olympus, and Sigma.  For the full model range please see the chart at the bottom of the page.
