Re: External cheap flash for SX40, advice needed

If you don't need a lot of light have you thought about an LED ring light?  This is the one I use for a lot of my macro work:

Unlike the a flash it is a steady light so you can see any shadows, etc. and correct before you shot but it is only good from about 2-20 inches.  It fits my SX50 hot shoe but I also use it free standing becasue it uses its own three AAA batteris.
