    shot this at F32, 1/100s, i would say that the light is not too bad but could use some fill from the bottom.

    Anyone has a ring flash that I can test?

    tissue paper will solve the problem but doesn't last long.
    get a translucent plastic bag and cut to size last longer.

    you have a ring flash?

    I Just want to see the light from a ring flash, camera body does not matter
    can you snap a picture and email to me? I want to see the shadows.

    Posted some pics here. In most cases, I did a 4:1 ratio from the left/top bulb.

    that would rule out the 2 digit ring flash, because the light is very even all around.
    unless we can diy something to modify the light
