    Default Testing the $98 Suntax ring flash

    Some samples taken at the shop with the 100mm Macro lenses and ring flash...







    IMO, not much diff between this $98 Suntax thingy and a $850 macro flash by Canon. Morever, there's TTL on it, available on Canon and Nikon mount.

    Any comments?

    Hi Stephen,
    So you really went ahead and tried it out! Was it the Dx-8R and is it possible to control the flash output? How much does the Nikon module cost?

    It's Suntax, not Sunpak Flash comes in 2 version, Nikon shoe and Canon shoe.

    It's TTL flash, u may wanna try it out with a roll of 12 exposures with the camera

    How does it mount in front of the lens? Is there any thread size limit or what?

    Thanks for the taught.

    u can use it on G3 as well as DSLR.
    In fact, the photos are taken with the 10D using the macro lenses

    It's just a Suntax auto-focus ring flash lor... no model number what-so-ever.

    The build is the thing that puts me off....but for that kind of $$$, it's bang for the bucks.

    Rubric: It's not Sunpak, no vario power output.

    since the flash is fully automatic TTL , can we compensate the flash via the camera flash settings ?
