Product Description

Using a ring light is a great way to achieve that glamorous looks in your photo and video shoots. The light features 640 Individual LEDs which are softly diffused by the included cover. The unit is best used reasonably close up to your subject with the camera mounted in the center of the ring. The beautiful soft light glow is designed to surround the subject, filling in all shadows by pointing at the subject from every angle. The ring light also has a very unique effect as a catch light. The circular "halo" illumination will be reflected in your subject's eyes.

Package includes:

1 x 640 LED ring light
1 x Diffuser for the LED
1 x flexible goose neck
1 x Power Adapter

Took delivery of one of these 18" 640 LED ring lights yesterday.

As I shoot through it at test subjects, the overwhelming response is, "Boy is that bright!"

I had my camera down to ISO 200 and working at about f/5.6 or so.

The supplied diffusion sock is not quite enough. LEDs are really annoying to look at.

A lighting manufacturer at NAB 2013 explained to me that LEDs put out most of their energy in the UV spectrum. The way they emit visible light (at least some of them) is to excite tiny amounts of phosphors placed over the LED itself, similar to how a fluorescent lamp excites phosphors deposited on the inner surface of the tube.

It also means that to be safe, manufacturers need to build in a UV filter. I sincerely believe that we instinctively realize such bright LED light is bad for our eyes and react with a squint.

Then again, your poor subject also has 640 very bright point sources searing their eyeballs.

The diffuser helps spread the light a bit, and it works as far as it goes, but my plan is to cut arcs of additional diffusion material and attach them to the light, over the LEDs, under the diffuser sock.

The gooseneck is functional and the 5/8" socket fits a standard lightstand nicely, though I don't know how long the fine threads of the locking knob will last. With care, it'll be fine. Just don't crank the knob down or you may strip the thread out. Won't be an issue unless you are hanging the light from overhead. On a stand, gravity is your friend.

What it really lacks is a way to store and transport. It arrives in a square cardboard box about 1-1/2" thick. After you attach the gooseneck, it can't fit back into the box.

This is the best LED light I've used. It's color accurate, mixes with daylight and other color accurate LED's. I uses this for beauty shoots. I'll pick another one up later. I've had it for 6 months now.
