Polaroid Macro LED Ring Flash – (not quite) a mini-review

On top of my dining room table is the Polaroid Macro LED Ring Flash mounted on the old Nikon D80.  I was able to get it on an Amazon Lightning deal of 20% off last week.  I’ve always wanted one of these for macro work but they generally are too expensive for my taste but this price was very tempting.  It comes with 8 mounting rings to fit most lenses and also some diffusers for the LEDs.  I have not attempted to put it through it’s paces but I did take it out to see what the light looked like on some fallen leaves in the backyard.  My first impression is that it’s easy to set up and use and offers a nice amount of flexibility at a very reasonable price.  Click on any shot below to enter the gallery.  All shots were made with the ring flash on the D80 and all post processing was done in Lightroom 5.
