Flashpoint Announces Battery-Powered Ring Li-on Ring Flash
From Flashpoint:
Flashpoint’s Ring Li-on is a lithium-powered, self-contained ring flash system designed for on- and off-camera photography
New York, NY – March 12, 2015 – Flashpoint, a leading manufacturer of professional photography and video equipment, is now selling the Ring Li-on ring flash, the newest addition to its Flashpoint lithium ion family of on- and off-camera strobes. The Flashpoint Ring Li-on is a 400ws lithium powered, self-contained ring flash system optimized to meet the ever-innovative professional photographer’s vision.
As photography expert Gavin Hoey suggests in his tutorial video on the Adorama Learning Center, photographers can take advantage of numerous unique benefits when using a ring flash, and the Ring Li-on is a groundbreaking spin on the typical model. It produces even illumination and shadow-free light – a necessity for nature and field shooters in macro and close-up situations. Its shape also provides a creative bonus for fashion or portrait shooters who want to add circular catch lights in their subjects’ eyes. A compact, cordless flash system, the Ring Li-on can easily be used with any DSLR or medium format camera equipped with lenses up to 3.5 inches in diameter.
With a crystal clear LCD panel on the rear of the flash, photographers can easily view a number of settings on the Flashpoint Ring Li-on, such as indicators for battery level, LED model/video lamp power, audio confirmations and mode selection (manual, intelligent and standard optical slave, and stroboscopic). Photographers can also view power levels on the large panel, which are adjustable in third stop increments from full (400ws) to 1/128th power (3ws). The Ring Li-on’s sleek body also includes built-in overheat protection guards against setting the repetitive flashes too high, safeguarding against damage to the advanced flash head during shooting. An included diffuser provides even softer effects, and the remote power control Flashpoint Commander allows users to wirelessly change their flash power output on the fly from 150+ feet away for off-camera work.
Thanks to its generous internal interchangeable 11.1-volt lithium ion battery, this model from Flashpoint can deliver approximately 450 full power flashes per charge with a recycle range of .05 to 2.8 seconds. An excellent light source for fashion sequences and specialty lighting requiring edge-to-edge illumination, the Ring Li-on is a spectacular option with a solid guide number of 82 (ft. @ ISO 100) – rare power for portable ring flashes.
In addition to its easy on-camera setup, the Flashpoint Ring Li-on can be mounted to a tripod for simple and sturdy hands-free studio setups. An extremely versatile solution, photographers can use the easily affixed umbrella bracket to add an umbrella for even more lighting options. Plus, the included ¼ x 20” screw mount allows users to add a handle grip for balance when on the move. The Flashpoint Ring Li-On also offers constant LED lighting with three levels of output settings for modeling use or as a constant source for video light at a maximum 440 lux (0.5m). A smart flash, the LED lamps even feature auto shut-off to prevent excessive battery drain.
The rugged, streamlined Flashpoint Ring Li-on lights beautifully in any situation, be it macro detailing, fashion shooting, portrait placement or traditional softbox/umbrella applications, and with its on- and off-camera capabilities, it can be transported anywhere and everywhere for consistent, gorgeous lighting assistance.
Pricing and Availability
The Ring Li-on Ring Flash is now available for just $499.95 USD, exclusively from Adorama.

Eyefi Mobi Pro 32GB Wireless SDHC Memory Card
From Eyefi:
Advanced wireless image transfer features, photo apps and integrated cloud service deliver ultimate convenience for all photographers.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 12, 2015 — Eyefi, the global leader in digital photo apps and services, today launched Eyefi Mobi Pro, a new 32GB WiFi SD card — the most powerful WiFi SD card ever. Mobi Pro is the latest in the company's product portfolio and combines advanced wireless transfer features with photo apps and integrated cloud services for photographers who appreciate speed, power and convenience. Eyefi Mobi Pro builds on the success of Eyefi Mobi — the leading WiFi SD card — that combines the quality of a digital camera with the convenience of a smartphone and the power of the cloud.
"Mobi Pro is the foremost product from Eyefi that builds on the state-of-the-art wireless image transfer and syncing we pioneered with Eyefi Mobi and Eyefi Cloud," said Matt DiMaria, CEO of Eyefi. "By adding RAW wireless transfer and workflow features demanded by photography customers around the world as well as powerful, automated photo categorization and search features it is now easier than ever to find, access and enjoy all your photos on any device at any time."
The most advanced WiFi SD card for image transfer
Simple and fast to set up, Mobi Pro provides photographers with unequalled power and flexibility when capturing images.
  • Selective transfer. Gives photographers control over which images transfer from their camera to their mobile device or to their computer for editing, sharing and syncing.
  • Wireless RAW & JPEG file transfer. Fast, wireless transfer of both RAW and JPEG give photographers the flexibility to work the way they want using the tools they want. Send JPEG images to your mobile device for instant preview, quick editing and sharing with others. Send RAW files directly to desktop for post-processing with tools such as Adobe Lightroom.
  • Infrastructure and direct mode network support. Images are securely and automatically transferred whether shooting on location, at home or in a studio. Away from home, Mobi Pro creates its own WiFi hotspot to enable instant transfer. At home, Mobi Pro connects to a local network to transfer images at high speeds.
Integrated apps and services speed workflow
Every Eyefi Mobi and Mobi Pro WiFi SD card includes fully integrated mobile and desktop apps that work from the moment of capture, speed workflow and make it easy to find and access photos anytime, anywhere. With the launch of Mobi Pro, powerful new capabilities have been added to Eyefi Cloud and apps.
  • Instant image compare. Advanced photo visualization tools let photographers quickly compare photos and view detailed image data such as shutter speed and aperture settings (EXIF data) to further enjoy their images and improve their skills.
  • Pictures in your pocket. Eyefi mobile apps work with Eyefi Cloud to intelligently retain original resolution images while rendering the best image for the viewing device. As a result, photographers can enjoy their entire photo collection on all their devices at any time. With Eyefi photo-uploading, photographers can even add all their computer-stored photos to their collection and enjoy them on any device.
  • Intelligent image categorization. Eyefi Cloud uses advanced image analysis to automatically classify images for instant organization, sharing and search by category. In addition to basic date, time and geo locations, images are automatically identified by subject area such as food, indoor, outdoor and dozens of other attributes making it fast and easy to find photos.
Pricing and availability
Mobi Pro is available worldwide through online and specialty retailers. Priced at $99.99 the card comes with 1 full year of membership to Eyefi Cloud with unlimited syncing and storage — a $49.99 value.
B&H carries the Eyefi 32GB Mobi Pro.
