I'm trying to realise my own ring light for my Nikon D5100 and wanted to create a thread as attachment possibility in front of the lens. I only found .stl-files I couldn't edit or use because of different thread-types. It would be nice, if you can give me a hint where to get a accordingly file.
I got some different ideas. Maybe you can share your opinions on these. First the already stated one. But I'm not sure if the amount of light produced by the ring at the lens is creating flares or making the pictures "ugly".
The second Idea was to glue or push the light ring onto the lens itself. But I'm not sure if I would damage the lens itself.
My actual idea is to have a bridge from the electrical box to the ring.
Thanks for your Help.
Hey fellow camera geeks! I've got something here I'm really proud of! There's a great showcase video too :)
My original gimbal stabilizer does a great job but I wanted to make it take even better silky smooth shots as well as being more Pro friendly. Both myself and others wanted more features to adapt better to the variable camera rigs and shots that we have to contend with on shoots.
I made these primarily to stop handling noise from my camera rig coming through to the audio recorder. There's plenty of other uses too like printer dampener feet or speaker feet, drones, you name it!

I made this LED video light some time ago and thought the articulated 3 way rosette joint could be of use for other camera lighting or maybe to be remixed into something for a completely different purpose.

This is a Macro Photography LED Ring Light that has a built-in variable brightness dimmer. I've been enjoying it for a while now so I thought there might be some macro photographers out there who would like it too.
