    Interesting. Has anyone dealt with Sain Sonic before? This is a new vendor to me.

    Says its only compatible with Nikon, so don't see how it's a deal if it doesn't work with olympus or lumix?

    I don't know if it will fire as a flash, certainly won't do TTL but it could still be used as a continuous light source.

    I would agree too, I think all LED Ring lights are Crap.. I am not fan of LEDs for Photography.

    However I do not know about the Video Stabilizer System for $54.99.
    It does not look bad.

    What specific experience have you had using LED lights or knowledge of a characteristic of LED lights that causes you to dislike this form of light source?

    I have this ring light and it works great for my needs. For 1:1 with my short focal length macro lenses though, it's a bit tricky since the tip of the lens is too close to the subject to provide illumination.

    This is a LIGHT and not a flash...it provides even illumination.

    I often complement the use of the ring light with my remotely-triggered FL-36R; having light aimed to the side adds the depth that is eliminated when using a ring light. Direct illumination tends to 'flatten' an image.

    BTW - I bought the ring light based on Kirk Tuck's recommendation.
