Marumi has good news for Sony users
Kenro has announced that the renowned Marumi Ring Flash (MADRF14) is now available with a Sony fit.
Previously, the Marumi Ring Flash was only an option for Canon or Nikon owners, but now Sony users will be able to take advantage of its shadow-free illumination. It is designed for close up, macro, medical, scientific and forensic photography as the flash light source is positioned directly between the camera lens and the subject providing an even/shadowless illumination.

The standard mount is 52mm and step up rings to 55mm, 58mm, 62mm and 67mm are included. The unit incorporates direct hot shoe synchronisation and has a flash duration of 1/7000th second and a recycling time of 4-6 seconds.
