Pretty darn good.
I purchased this ring flash about 6 months ago. I was very excited to buy it. You can fire a secondary off camera flash to give a better depth to your photos and use it as a great fill flash, or use it "stand alone". Excellent for macro photography as you can adjust the strobes strength independently from each other, or just turn off one side if you wish. Overall, I don't go anywhere without it attached to my camera when shooting macro. If you are on the fence looking to purchase this flash...just do it.

Fills the Spot
I am totally satisfied with the outstanding performance of this product for macro work and I only wish I could have been able to post some images.
