Compatible Ring Light for XHA1?

I am looking to get a ring light for the XHA1 that attaches to the 72mm filter thread. I am aware that this would disrupt the fast auto focus. Anyone use one or aware if any of the Ebay ones would work?
Many thanks

i build my own from rings of leds you can find on ebay (called angel eyes).
nice provider is Led light company (nice light, cheap price)
take the 5050 leds they are a lot bigger and more powerful than 3528.

Sounds impressive, beyond my capability I think. How do you then attach it to the XHA1?

That's interesting Paul, what sort of work do you intend with the ring light?
Cheers.

I need the light for close ups on peoples faces and other areas when the main lights are obscured.

I own a Kino Flo Kamio ring light which can be used with any camera, and has different mounting options.
I have used the Kamio with the XH-A1 numerous times, although I mount it on a 15mm mini rail system.

All the Best!

to fix it, just cardboard and glue on a sunshade should be ok.
if you need more professional look, check for aluminium or plexiglass
