What flash does the RayFlash Ringflash Adaptor work with?

The RayFlash Ringflash Adapter is available in several versions, made specifically for flash units from Nikon & Canon but it can be modified to be used with a much wider variety of guns and cameras. Feedback from customers of the UK importer Flaghead helped them compile a flash compatibility chart which we are sharing below. To help adaptation Flaghead provide a small, non-slip wedge, made from flexible black rubber, that fits in the gap between a Ringflash Adaptor and any flash unit that is slightly smaller than the Ringflash Adaptor’s fitting.
