Bower SFDRL14

Check availablity: Adorama, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, BH, eBay.

Rebranded version of Phoenix RF46.

Cheap and simple macro ring flash. No manual controls on the flash itself, just an on/off switch. On Nikon, this means that exposure control is by TTL only. On newer Canon DSLRs that have menus for flash settings, it also can be used manually.

The low price is reflected in the build quality - handle with care.

Designed to fit 52 mm filter thread. Usually supplied with adaptor rings to also fit 55, 58, 62 and 67 mm.

This macro ring flash is rebranded and sold under a number of different brands, including Bilora, Bower, Marumi, and Phoenix.
