Lens-mounted flash rings are a fairly common camera accessory, but the powerfully-named Digi-Slave Flex-Ring 6400 might take the premise to its ultimate conclusion.

This monstrous ring light features 64 oversized LEDs—that's 32 around the lens and an extra 16 on each flexible flank. With light approaching your subject from every visible angle, the Digi-Slave is a very simple way to eliminate shadow in macro photography.

Oh, and sure, a lightbox might do the same thing. But it's not nearly as portable, nor does it have that deadly deep sea creature look with the lights off. $360 [Digi-Slave via Core77]

I made a similar ring once, but the white balance of the LEDs was a lot on the cold side, and by compensating it to make the picture neutral, the background turned to red.

I wonder if these do the same thing, or if they're better in that respect.
