Lighting specialists Godox are introducing an updated version of its on-camera macro ringflash. The new Godox MF-R76S TTL is designed for close-up photography - where you need even lighting that the ring-shaped lens-mounted flash tubes provide. Similar to the earlier manually controlled Godox R76, the new version offers TTL metering, and wireless control if using Godox 2.4GHz X system. The MF-R76S TTL will be available in three different version to ensure TTL compatibility with Sony, Canon and Nikon system cameras. The units also offer advanced flash features such as high-speed sync (HSS), and second-curtain sync.

Macro ringflash units are most often seen on the television being used by forensic teams in CSI dramas to take photos of crime scene evidence - and are also still widely used by dentists to take pictures of patients' teeth. But, used in combination with a macro lens, they are also invaluable for taking well-lit images of flowers, insects, coins and other miniature subjects.
