To get a truly stunning picture, you need more than a fancy DSLR. Good lighting is essential, and the Orbis Flash can help you achieve that “studio quality” shot that you’d never be able to get with your camera’s built-in flash, or even the simple Speedlight flash that many people get. Not only do you get a nice, soft, and diffuse light (great to avoid those shiny flash spots), its ring shape gives your subject’s eyes an ethereal look often seen in magazines.
It works by using your detachable flash’s light, which you insert in the Orbis. Virtually every such flash is compatible, except for “Metz side-mounted ‘Hammerheads’ and Vivitar 285.” Normally costing $200, this deal brings the price down to $150.
