Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Profoto Acute/D4 Ringflash Kit
Requires the use of a power pack (not included).
The Profoto Acute/D4 Ringflash fits all Acute power packs, and is an entirely mobile source of light. The adjustable tripod mount bracket and wide interior (4" diameter) allows for fitting all types of cameras and lenses in many formats. On the bottom of the bracket resides a standard 5/8" adapter that allows mounting onto any standard light stand. The ringflash has a protective glass cover to keep the flash tubes safe. Maximum firing rate is 9600 w/s per minute, equal to 4 flashes per minute at 2400 w/s, 8 flashes at 1200, 16 at 600, 32 at 300, or 64 flashes per minute at 150 w/s. A power supply for this flash head is required but not included.
The Profoto Acute/D4 Ringflash also comes with the Profoto WideSoft reflector. This is essentially Profoto’s version of a beauty dish. It gives a broad, soft light that works well for portraiture.This strobe head is only compatible with Acute and D4 generators.
The D4 ringflash is a great choice for fashion work and some portraiture work. While I wouldn’t suggest it for a family portrait, if you’re shooting one, maybe two people, it’s hard to beat. It gives great three dimensionality. Another popular use is for product shots. It gives a nice even light with wonderful color accuracy. No matter what you’re shooting, I would suggest using a backlight to really make your subject pop! If you’re shooting a studio setup, it’s definitely an option to consider!

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.
On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.
In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.
If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
