Hello From Melbourne Australia

Hi from Melbourne where my interest in photography has been resurrected, by my family purchasing a real camera and asking questions about cameras and how to use them. Looking forward to read and learn a few tips myself.
Just purchased a 100 LED lens flash that attaches to my K100D Super flash mount or on the lens. Used for macros and close ups. Brilliant for $65.00 delivered.

Hi and welcome to Pentax Forums, Noely.
LEDs have taken over for a lot of functions, recently. I've often wondered how good the macro LED flash units are. Do you find the colour is satisfactory? All LEDs have at least a residual dominant blue that is OK for general use, but may cause problems for some work.
That aside, enjoy your time here, as there's a lot to be learned by searching and asking questions.

The seller advert says, colour corrected for correct tones. CRI of >95Ra+. Flicker free video.
I have not yet really tried out. Will do soon with my 28-80 macro Sigma lens.
I like the fact that it fits hot shoe, lens mount and has AF assist. It can be used of the camera as well.
