So , perks and cons!!

Perks:
It has a very nice distribution of light, the shadows seem fairly even.

The size of it makes it useful for portraits and even 3/4ths and a great hair light!

The mount it comes with NEEDS TO HAVE A STAND. With that said , the mount its on is BENDY and allows for you to twist and angle it as you please

Cons:
The mount it comes with NEEDS TO HAVE A STAND.You need to buy one for the specific pole width or be a master craftsman

On the bottom of the ring there is a slight bump upward where the bulb has some wiring going on within the case - it shows in your photos and is very anoying.

It heats up very quickly! I have florescent hot lights that dont heat up this fast

Only one ring within the main ring, id love to have 2 for added brightness

I am a singlehanded filmmaker who needs a single inexpensive, compact and relatively cool light source that avoids the harsh single-light "movie lamp" look. With a Diva Ring Light mounted on your tripod (as in the product photo), you won't need a light stand -- and you can light faces or objects with an even, professional look. Your subjects/talent will not be blinded, nor will they break into a sweat as soon as the light comes on. The light doesn't use much power, so I am also able to use it for run-and-gun with a Flycam stabilizer and a 120VAC Duracell Powersource 100 Li-ion battery pack (sadly, this item has been discontinued, and residual stock is overpriced, but you should be able to find something similar without breaking the bank). The rig is a little ungainly, but it produces great looking pictures. I could only afford one of these, so bought a couple of rechargeable LED lights for hair and background lighting. If I could afford two more for the look seen in Dan Brockett's review at kenstone dot net slash fcp_homepage slash bring_on_glamour_brockett dot html -- I would!

This product is great for getting that nice ring in the eyes for headshots. It also is great for my makeup artist when they are doing before and after shots, plus great for video.

An easy, lightweight ringlight for video, with some drawbacks that a handy person can solve. The other reviewer is correct, it won't mount on any stands that I currently own without modification. I'd add one more mild complaint, that the gooseneck is a bit floppy for the weight of the light (maybe that's just mine). But making a stand-topper that this can affix to won't be a big stumbling block. This light replaces something I cobbled together a few years ago that is, really, too much effort to mount (it was a between-tripod-and-camera-mounted ringlight), and it weighs a lot less. All in all, it's one more light option that I'm glad to have in my kit.

I was made aware of this product via a workshop I hosted last year, and the results from that shoot were amazing (many different photographers all getting very interesting shots). This year, I saw it used again at another workshop, and this time I was able to get a light for myself. It is now a part of my regular shooting gear. The company is very good to deal with, as they have a bunch of different things for photographers to choose from. I bought my light direct from the company on short notice, and they pulled through with flying colors. This is just a wonderful item to use for different things. Yes, it will need a stand, but it comes in a nice carry bag (store carefully). It is easy to use, and will prove to be a key component of your general shooting gear.

The stellar Photo/Video light does an good job of lighting any singular subject I am taking photos of. I have had no problems with the function of the actual light. However, I have yet to be able to put he diffuser on the light. It seems to be too small to fit over the ring. I am also not the biggest fan of the camera mount. It is not very stable and tends to be more trouble then its worth to mount your camera too. However I don't see these two things as major draw backs for the price. I would recommend this product to anyone starting out with studio photography.
