3rd Party Macro Ring Flash... $125 anyone try?
Mar 6, 2011

http://cgi.ebay.com/Dedicated-ADI-PTLL-Macro-Ring-Flash-Sony-A330-A380-/270617966175?pt=Camera_Flash_Accessories&hash=item3f0216765f

In a world without a true SONY RingFlash unit how does this stack up against the famed Minolta FS-1200 & MF-C1000 controller. Keep in mind that it's only $125 or less on ebay... I saw a FLOOD of these cheap knockoffs but what "SOLD" me on this unit is the macro shot of the FLY 2" away from the lens, the AD states it was taken with this flash and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is FINALLY the real deal...

Please let me know? (Walt what's your take?)

Thanks!

From the minds of Minolta to the imagination of Sony, Alpha, like no other.
