The RL-59 consists of two main pieces, connected by a coil cord. The control unit mounts in the camera’s hot-shoe, and looks much like any hot-shoe flash unit, except there’s a cord coming out of a black plate where the flash tube normally would be. There’s even a tilting “bounce” head and a red AF-illuminator window, although neither serves a function with the RL-59: They’re there because the control unit shares a body shell with another Phoenix flash unit. The ring flash head measures about 3.6×4.5 inches, and screws into the adapter ring on the front of the camera lens.
