Agree with most people on the comments about the SL-1

Its a disappointment except perhaps for the price..even then

I need good lighting for my work, surgical record keeping.

the SL-1 is far from a ringflash.
I still use it but only with the help of the bright OR lights. Its good to fill in the shadows.
To make matters worse, the plastic battery cover fell off recently and its lost!. So tape the cover if you want to keep it!

I'm looking at the Digislave and hopefully the "hint" about a ringflash is true!

Waiting in anticipation in Singapore

The Digislave ring flash looks like the Vivitar 5000 unit. You can attach an optical slave unit to the back of the Vivitar 5000 and get the appropiate step down rings for your camera. You would need a slave that can handle a pre-flash if your camera does a pre-flash. The Vivitar 5000 uses a PC connector, you can connect directly if your camera has an external flash connection.
