Really Right Stuff offers flash hoops/rings in small, medium and large + two styles and of course all types of adapters for major camera manufactures, so you should not have any trouble putting together a complete set up by purchasing an appropriate sized circular or semi-circular flash bracket which accepts the really right stuff flash mounts. You then acquire the correct flash shoe adapters. Their solution supports wireless and wired set-ups. If you want to attach a standard flash on the ring you will need either a "cold" shoe adapter or a strobe cord adapter. Once you have the adapters and flashes attached you can place the flash(es) anywhere along the ring, and lock them in place.
Top Quality products for Macro, or a simple fill flash attached to your longer nature lens. Overall the system is very adaptable for general macro, studio, and product photography uses.
Second Advisory: Unfortunately the hoop/ring adapters are not interchangeable. That is if you have a large hoop/ring your medium B87-QRFM will not fit the larger diameter ring. So you will require flash mounts specific to each ring size, a tilting flash mount will run you $170.00 - ouch!
Time for macro Photography & I am ready to get out and shoot.In the early days, one of my least favorite aspect of photography was flash, simply because I sucked at it, and normally got mixed results when I tried using it. Since discovering Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS) my Macro has improved.
This is my review of the Really Right Stuff flash brackets and flash mounting accessories. I purchased my setup this past month and have taken it out on a few shooting assignments. Here is what I have to say about the setup and its operation and dependability in the field.
Macro close up photography is one aspect of photography that I became involved in a few years back following a period where I wanted to try something different in my photography. In the early days I would stack filters on my normal lens to acquire close focusing capabilities this was hit or miss due to metering and my in experience. Fast forward a few years..
