I will probably get something similar at some point, only because the wife does not like to be seen out with me if I use any homemade bits

Mine was more to try and see how much I use it.

Yours looks like the proper item!!!

I think I may need to add a dimmer to mine - it casts the light around 15 feet....

Ronny, the scorpion is fabulous. I really like the way the shadow appears. It makes it more lifelike. I agree on the shadow on the heart of rose. It needs a little more light.

Ring lights are often criticized for their flat lighting, but the evenness of illumination can be an advantage in certain situations. I have posted and referred to these images of a high relief medallion before, in reference to kit lens image quality in close-up photography, but are applicable here as a comparison of lighting. The left image was taken with the Digi-slave Ultra II ring light, and the right hand one with oblique lighting. Each has advantages. K100D with 18-55 kit lens (first version). Which do you like better?
