The Sony HVL-RL1 Macro Ring Light is a compact LED ring light
that is specifically designed for macro shooting and working with
close-up subject matter. The LED light source provides a constant, clear
illumination of 700 lux at a working distance of 11.8" / 30cm for
enhanced detailing of nearby subjects. The brightness of the light
source can be dimmed between 10 to 100% and switchable modes enable
full, right, and left illumination for greater control over the shadows.
The power control unit attaches to the camera via the multi-interface
hot shoe and a Sony Auto-Lock Shoe Adapter is included to provide
compatibility for Sony iISO accessory shoe types. Two lens adapter rings
are also included for use on lenses with filter threads measuring
either 49mm or 55mm, such as the DT 30mm f/2.8 Macro Lens and the DT
50mm f/1.8 Prime Lens.
