Alien Bees ABR800 Ringflash review

Alien Bees ABR800 Ringflash

There’s a review of the Alien Bees ABR800 Ringflash on Studio
Bill concludes in his verdict that

The ABR800 really meets it’s objective of being an affordable, lightweight alternative to the higher end products on the market. In my opinion, the unit sacrifices nothing in the areas of output or quality

While Ed goes on to add

We got some really nice results out of the box, but I wasn’t getting the FHM/Maxxim/Glamour/Beauty look that I was hoping to see at first. I think I wasn’t keeping in mind that most of those “looks” come mostly from post-processing, but require a light like this to get you in the “ballpark” and create the overall tones.
