YOKOHAMA, Japan--Japanese manufacturer Lumos, known for its X-Loupe portable microscope camera, has unveiled an attachment for the Canon PowerShot G11 shooter that lets users snap closeup shots.
Displayed at the four-day CP+ photo show in Yokohama, Japan, the ring light is made up of LEDs that can illuminate up to 22,000 lux within a 3cm range (or 1,200 lux from a distance of 30cm). The onboard battery is rated to power the light for about 2.5 hours and can be attached to the tripod mount. According to company rep, an optional external power source can extend the usage time by an additional 4 hours.
Expected to launch in Japan this May, the ring light attachment will also be compatible with the PowerShot G9 and G10, as well as the Ricoh GXR.
