Today a Phoenix Smart Flash RF46N Macro Ring Flash for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras was waiting for me when I came home, so, of course, I wanted to click off a few test shots. The Phoenix unit gets mixed reviews on Amazon, mostly about cheap construction. It is also the unfortunate star of this Gary Fong video, which looks like he shot in a hotel room with a pro, and I don't mean model:
You go, Gary! Well, I ordered one anyway and I'm happy I did. I captured these two samples with the Phoenix mounted on an AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 D and D700, ISO 200, manual f/16 @ 1/60s. The strobe is iTTL only.
