Make your own macro/ring flash....

I found these bits on ebay so decided I'd give it a go at these prices it dont matter too much!

So first is the frame to hold two flashes.
then pick ANY flashe you want and you have a custom macro/ring flash!







Yes may look pretty ugly, but it does seem to work, I just picked flashes that have a 2.5mm sync connection so need to get new cable/adaptor to use it fully

this whole set up was roughly 46!
thats the ring and two flashes!
