Ray Flash – turn your ordinary flash gun into a ring flash


The Ray Flash is an add-on accessory which converts a conventional hot shoe flash into a fancy pants ring flash used by those hoity toity professional types. There’s no electronics involved, just a system of ‘light shapers’ which direct the light around the lens. Clever it is, impressive the results. $199.95.


 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 flash 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.


  • I've been using this thing for nearly a year!

    • Heh, well you clearly like it. :-) Nice shots by the way (I like the cat eye)

    • Yeah – I'm the only person I know who has one – it treats me very well!

    • I always thought they were just for macro shots, I'm still not entirely sure why they give such interesting results in normal situations. You look like you use yours for standard fill-flash too? Amazing. :-)
