Is a macro ring flash and a ring flash the same thing?
5 months ago

I own an Olympus OM-D E-M1, have been trying to find a ring flash for some time but it looks like there aren't many available for my camera. Those that I can find, seem to be what is considered "macro" ring flashes.. I've seen them being used for macro photography, but can these be used for portraits as well? A search of the Metz mecablitz 15 MS-1 on Google has example photographs with models but also smaller things like bugs and such.. I'm mainly interested in using it for portraits.
