Hey everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know Ray Flash has dropped it's price to $199 from $300. I'm guessing this is in response to the competition from the Orbis Ring flash.

On that note does anyone know any good comparisons between the Ray Flash and Orbis? Or now that it's only $30 different is it better just to go for the Ray Flash?

Love to see some example shots in this thread if any. :-)

Happy shooting.

I've sen some really great work with the RayFlash. The problem I see with it as opposed to the Orbis is that the RayFlash has to be purchased for the make and model camera you're going to use, whereas the Orbis is more of a universal device.

I thought about trying a RayFlash but if I got it for my Nikon D300 and then upgraded to a D700 (which I am planning to do) then that version won't work and I'd have to replace it with the correct version.

My understanding is that the Orbis, once it ships with a camera mounting system will be universal and just needs to be adjusted for the make and model camera you're using.

I agree with what Robert said above. The Orbis appears to have more flexibility between flash models. However, holding the flash while shooting seems very awkward to me and leads me to want the Ray Flash more.
