Hi

I am going to Israel on Sunday and travelling light. I am taking an Orbis ringflash for situations where I cannot bounce or need fill flash outdoors. Very simple and robust. What do you all think? I have an OMD and FL600r so can take it off camera and hold at arms length or stick it on my small tripod if necessary also.

OMD, + Pana 20mm & 14-45mm Oly 45mm (prev GH1, E30, E510, E1, E300)

Personally I wouldn't take my orbis travelling, I hate how many stops of light it eat's (-3.6). If I was to take it travelling I would have it on a bracket fitted to the camera making for a single package..
