Saga Dive Fiber Optic Ring Flash Adapter for Macro Diopter Lenses
Designed for use with diopters, Saga Dive has a new answer for underwater macro photography lighting. The Saga Ring Flash uses fiber optic technology and existing strobes to transfer the strobe light output through a parallel series of fiber optic cords held in place around the front of the diopter lens on a port. Light is bright and even on the subject and rapidly tapers off in the background, creating nice bokeh or a black background. Strobes such as the Sea & Sea YS-D1, D2, Inon z240, and z330 work very well and in both manual and TTL modes.
The Saga Ring Light for Macro Lens is designed to work specifically with Saga diopters and the Nauticam SMC, CMC1 and CMC2. It will work on smaller compact and micro 4/3rds housings as well as SLRs.
Saga Dive designed the unit to be mounted on a short arm with the strobe upside down and centered over back of the housing. This does allow for the best flexibility of adjustment of the fiber optic cords, but it can be in the way of looking at the subject, and blocks the use of focus lights as well.
Another mounting option is to mount a strobe to a handle ball mount with a clamp. This frees up the focus light holder, and also mounts the unit out of the way.
The Saga Fiber Optic Ring Flash is very durable; the fiber optic cords are quite stiff and won’t bend or break in normal use.
The Saga Macro Lens Ring Flash Adapter is available custom made to your order. Mounting option: strobe (Inon z240, z330 or Sea & Sea YS-D1, YS-D2), Macro Diopter (Saga or Nauticam SMC, CMC1 or CMC2). It is not available for the YS-01. Ports must support the use of one of the listed diopters. Turnaround is about 15-20 days and they can ship directly to customers world-wide.
