What type of listing is this?

Want to buy

What are you trying to sell/buy/trade?

cheap, manual, slender, continuously circular ring xenon flash light

What are your prices?

Around USD $35 would be nice, including shipping and Paypal fees. For $60 shipped, I can buy a new Yongnuo YN-14EX or a used Canon xenon ring flash right now. I know some vintage ring flashes are selling at around $35 on eBay now, but am unsure about center polarity and trigger voltage.

Where are you located?


Where are you willing to to ship?



I need, for Olympus E-M1 mk1, a cheap, manual, slender, continuously circular ring xenon flash light.

The flash has to use center positive trigger and 24v or less trigger voltage (this can be measured with multimeter). Here is how to measure it: Checking trigger voltage | DPanswers

I think most Canon flash will work, but probably not Nikon ones (as Nikon flash is said to use reversed polarity). Some detailed info here:
compatibility of older, flashes with D3
Continuously circular xenon ring flash, cheap and slender for m4/3

Yongnuo YN-14EX is cheap and otherwise fits, but its flash tube is not a continuous circle.

No LED ring "flash" please; I have one already.

USPS First Class is fine, if packed well.

Included in offer
