    You can use a macro ring for a more clinical lighting approach but if you want to be able to tailor your lighting for a more creative approach then the Adaptalux Starter Pack is ideal. The variables are incredible – up to five lighting arms at once, each with variable beam width and beam intensity, five different color arms available, along with white and colored diffusers give you and almost infinite palette of lighting options. The control pod can sit on your camera’s cold shoe, on a tripod, on a table top, or be hand-held. Most definitely recommended for the serious macro shooter!

    The starter pack is a good way to get started with Adaptalux. I would fully recommend and I will definitely be buying some new Lighting Arms soon!

    The adaptalux starter pack is a great way to get going with this very flexible lighting system. It works great for on the go macro in the garden filling in shadows nicely. It also acts as a sweet catch light for objects with water drops on them or insect eyes. I do wish that it was brighter or that we could get a flash arm with TTL.

    I really enjoy using my adaptalux. It is very well built the arms feel very strong and sturdy. They stay exactly where you put them. The app is easy to connect and control your arms with. I will definitely be adding more arms to my collection at some point. I can’t wait to start using my adaptalux in the studio.

    Overall I have been very impressed as this is a well made imaginative product that has been a pleasure to use.

    I really like this product – It offers great flexibility, coupled with ease of setting up the lighting arms to wherever you want them for the perfect illumination with macro shots. It offers endless options for creativity.

    The product overall is well made, with some really nice features, like the magnetic attachment of the arms and diffusers.

    All I can say is wow!! This is an all in one powerful hand sized lighting solution. I use it mainly for macro and it is fantastic for adding just the right amount of light especially when you are doing extreme macro and the camera casts a shadow. And the colored lighting can really add additional depth or a kick of fun to your photos. Highly recommend for anyone doing macro and want a low cost high quality complete system. Thanks Adaptalux!!!!

    Excellent product for Macro photography. Have started to use them with my Fuji X-series Macro lens and the lightning makes all the difference, produces interesting lighting results. Thoroughly recommended.

    I bought this product for UVIVF macro photography, and it performed very well for that purpose. Good product! I highly recommend it!

    Excellent thought & quality has been put into this lighting system. I purchased the starter kit to use in my flower macro photography. While I had an issue with the light arms in the beginning, it was clear it was my error & I was able to figure it out & achieve the effects that I was looking for.

    The magnetic arms make it super easy to change out the coloured diffusers or swap coloured lighting arms. The hot shoe attachment is great for working outdoors. I can see I’ll be purchasing a few more coloured lighting arms soon. Well done Adaptalux!

    Outstanding idea for local lighting control in macro photography. The starting kit is really all one needs but I would add a diffuser as essential. With all macro patience is essential. The lights can be moved around un til you are satisfied by looking bat live view. The only frustration is that the arms although adjustable , do not immediately stay where you put them. The control of light on the subject is totally up to the photographer, other Flash systems are no competition at all.
