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 ordered this item twice from the same company (Kellards fulfilled by Amazon) and BOTH times it arrived broken!

The first time it was shipped in a box way too big without the proper packaging to keep it from sliding around during shipping. When I opened the box the ring light came in, there was a black storage bag which had the ring light in. I opened the bag and I was alarmed by this white residue covering everything. I proceed to remove the ring light from the bag and all I could hear was broken glass. The ring light was COMPLETELY shattered and non-functioning. There were wires exposed and I wasn't attempting to salvage this.

I contacted Amazon and they provided me with an immediate refund so I discarded the item myself.

The second shipment arrived in a smaller box but AGAIN without any packaging to protect the ring light from being damaged. Once I removed the bag from the item's box, there wasn't as much powder as the first shipment but it was still some powder residue along with more broken glass. The second item wasn't as damaged as the first shipment but needless to say, it was still defective upon arrival.

I contacted Amazon again and they requested me to ship back the item (Via UPS pickup) before they would issue a refund. This was a bit upsetting especially since the customer service representative was less than pleasant.

In conclusion, I would not order from Kellards again. They really need to focus on securely packaging their merchandise so these incidents don't happen back-to-back. This company seems negligent to have shipped $250 items without any secure packaging. Such a huge disappointment.

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.

I'm a Youtuber and this ring light is perfect for my on-camera needs. I've always hated setting up a bunch of lights & was looking for something quick & simple that would give me even light. This is perfect for me and I'm so glad I got it! When it arrived it was missing the 3200k lamp, so I reported it and they sent me a replacement two days later. Then for the inconvenience they sent an extra one just in case. I always appreciate excellent customer service, it's so rare these days. I would definitely recommend this to anyone in need of a beautiful ring light.

You will not get a stand and still pay 279.00, the actual company is selling the light with a stand for the same price.

it was also missing a part, for the camera to mount on. Called the company, the girl was a bit rude, and thinks that is okay to sell a product for this amount of money without a stand, the exact same product is sold on their website and it comes with a stand for the exact same price. Soooooo, they sell it at amazon, but customers get less for the money. NOT COOL! will not buy from them again, and will be returning this piece of crap, which I am ashamed to do, because it was a birthday gift for my sister. I was going to keep it as the girl at Stellar said that she would send a stand and the missing part, and I should get a shipping email about it coming. that was 24 hours ago and nothing in my email. Sick and tired of THESE SELLERS CHEATING CONSUMERS.

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 is an amazing tool if you make youtube videos or you are sitting and talking a lot to the camera. Excellent light to help illuminate the face perfectly. LOVE!

Connecter at bottom of light different that what was advertised. Compare http://i.imgur.com/B9PSXI9.jpg with third product image. Product image depicts as sturdier connector. I know because I ordered the exact same item about a year back. The quality then was great. With my two recent orders of the same item, Stellar Lighting replaced the great connector what a very cheap plastic connect shown in the imgur link above.

To add insult to injury, check out the bag that the light came in. Wow, such bad quality control. What a diaster. http://i.imgur.com/ZdGZo7q.jpg

DO NOT ORDER UNTIL SELLER CONFIRMS AND FIXES THESE ISSUES.

One of the worst mistakes sellers can make is when the product image listed on Amazon differs from what you actually get mailed to you.

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.

Amazing light! Perfect for portraits. I bought this light because I use to used to only use 2 softbox lights to light the face. The lighing would sometime be uneven on the face, creating unflattering shadows. I thought this would be really good to give a all around even lighting, and it really does. Really good light every photographer needs this.
BTW, the first time i ordered this light it came in broken, customer service was great and gave me a full refund when i sent it back. Then i re-ordered another one and when it came in, it was in perfect condition.
