Want a cool accessory for your macro-photography adventures? Then this may be for you. The Neewer LED Macro Ring Light with 48 leds to enlighten your creativity. A ring flash that can be mounted directly on the lens, with three lighting options: full, left side only, right side only, powered by two AA batteries. Output is around 15GN, enough for good macros.
