Thats pretty cool...i love the catchlights it gives. Might build one of these...i see a few things id do differently though(mostly not doing a hacked up wiring job and using more durable construction materials since im a know studio clutz).

I've seen several designs for home made ring lights but that one looks the best out of what I've seen.They are awesome critters for intersting catchlight.Been wanting to buy the AB ring light just hard to justify the cost right now.

Same here...they have some REALLY cool modifiers for it if you get the Moon unit with it...some of the catchlights are WAY cool!

But your talking 500 bucks... That would buy me the B1600 and a large soft box that i need...starting to run out of power when using my current lights with large, power sucking modifiers outside in bright sunlight. Stupid DSLR's and their low sync speeds...:rolleyes:
