From ExpoImaging: Watsonville, California – February 05, 2014
ExpoImaging, Inc., distributor of the original Ray Flash Ring Flash Adapter to the United States market, today announced availability of the Ray Flash 2: Universal Ring Flash Adapter.
“We are pleased to be able to introduce the new Ray Flash 2 to U.S. photographers,” said Erik Sowder, ExpoImaging CEO. “When the original Ray Flash was created, location photographers were astonished to find that they could use it to achieve ring flash-style lighting using their speedlights. Now, the Ray Flash 2 accommodates a much wider variety of DSLRs and speedlights with its adjustable and more affordable design.”
The patented Ray Flash 2 creates the characteristic ring flash look, a shadow-wrapped, flat lighting effect valued by photographers for fashion, portrait, and macro photography. To create this effect, the Ray Flash’s acrylic light guides efficiently direct light from a camera mounted speedlight into a circle around the camera’s lens.
The new Ray Flash 2 introduces a universal speedlight mount, adjustable height and a lower profile. A new, universal, adjustable mount with a spring-loaded clamp allows the Ray Flash 2 to quickly and securely attach to different sizes of speedlights. The center column of the Ray Flash 2 slides up and down to accommodate variations in camera and speedlight heights. The Ray Flash 2 is also available in two different versions, long and short, to fit the tallest and shortest DSLR bodies available. Ray Flash 2’s lower profile compared to the original Ray Flash makes it even more portable for location photographers. Pricing and Availability
The Ray Flash 2: Universal Ring Flash Adapter is now available in the U.S. through photo specialty resellers nationwide. The Ray Flash 2 retails for $139.95. B&H

Brandon Stanton moved to New York in 2010. As an amateur photographer, he was fascinated by the crowds of characters throughout the city. He began to take street portraits of the people he met and share them in an album on his timeline named, Humans of New York.
As his photos started to gain a following, he created a Facebook Page that started a movement. There are “Humans of …” Facebook Pages for nearly every major city in the world, while the HONY photographer himself is something of a celebrity on the streets of New York.
Brandon’s Facebook community of more than 2.3 million people is more than just an audience. Together, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity and have propelled Brandon to become a New York Times bestselling author after he published a book of his work in 2013.
