    These Flashpoint flashes are a re-brand from godox. Adorama flies the Flashpoint as their product but in this case it seems like it is a godox product.

    I use the Flashpoint streaklight 360 strobe and Flashpoint Zoom Lion TTL speedlight and they work well. I have noticed with the 360 some color shifts but I haven't determine it to be a consistent issue maybe 1/20 photos. Overal Godox/flashpoint brand seems to be a reliable product and less in price vs the other label brands.

    I haven't tested or tried the ringlight but there is a review here for reference.

    A ring flash is intended to photograph objects within 1 diameter of the ring flash distant from the flash ie macro photography..If you go furthur you end up with terribe shaddows ....thats my feedback and redommendations...
