There are many brand names past and present that make or have made ring flash. Here’s a selection off the top of my head. I’m sure there are many more ringflash manufacturers that I’ve forgotten to include. Let me know.

Alfa Alien Bee Bowens Briese
Broncolor Canon Centon Cokin
Digi-Slave Elicar Elinchrom Hasselblad
Hensel Lencarta Lomo Lumedyne
Minolta Multiblitz Nikon Novoflex
Olympus Pentax ProFoto S&A

There are also several makers of ringflash adaptors for normal flashguns. These include

The adaptor attaches over the flash head and spreads the light through a chamber and around the lens.
