Let me explain why this light is essential for perfect selfies and portraits. It's all about light and color balance!
Light is not always what it seems. Our eyes are very forgiving, so when we move from place to place everything seems normal in terms of color. So, for example, when moving from a bright daylight environment to a room lit by a candle all that will appear to change, to the naked eye, is the light level. Yet record these two situations using a camera and the first will have a blue hue and the latter will come out with a heavy orange cast (nobody likes orange skin in pictures). This is because our brain can quickly adjust to the changes, making white appear white, whereas our cameras are balanced for one particular color and anything that deviates from this will produce a color cast.
The color variation is referred to as the color temperature and is measured in degrees Kelvin. The scale ranges from the flame of a candle at around 1900K to deep blue sky at around 10,000k as illustrated by the diagram I've included.
The light source is listed next to the degrees in Kelvin, both set against the color of the light at each level.
You will notice that the color next to the Average noon daylight (5500K) is white (which is what ring lights produce). This is the color temperature that cameras are balanced to which means that when shooting using a 5500K white balance, the photograph will record white objects as white and all the colors in an image will appear natural. If you shoot in conditions that measure a higher temperature the photo will start to become bluer and shoot in conditions below the 5500 temperature and they will increase in orange.
The colors here don't just relate to daylight conditions artificial light also introduces a color cast. With fluorescent lights this is often green and with tungsten lighting it will be yellow, while flash can be slightly blue.
If you own a digital camera you may have read about the white balance control. Most digital cameras have an automatic color balance. This will look at a scene and if it thinks the color is too blue it compensates to make it natural by adding a red shift to the colors recorded. Likewise if it sees an orange scene it will increase the blue content. A 5500K ring light is perfect because not only does it produce a consistent color of light, but it surrounds your face with light and gives dimensions to your facial features.
I ordered it and it arrived very promptly. The packaging was fine I didn't see anything wrong with it and I wanted to start using it right away. So I took out the light and made sure everything looked fine which it did. I plugged it in and all was working fine. I was so happy so I turned it off. The next day I wanted to use it and I turned it on then 3 mins later it cut off! In my head I'm like wtf so I turn it off and back on, Nothing! I let it rest a few mins and try again and still nothing. At this point I'm worried it's broken so I start inspecting it a little making sure the plug is pushed all the way in and that the light it placed inside the right how it should. Still nothing.
So I start to request Amazon for an exchange and I started packing the ring light exactly how I got it for returning and then 30 mins later something tells me to try it one more time. Since I'd have to wait quite a time for the exchange to happen. And to my disbelief it started working again. And now I've had it a few days and I haven't had any problems but I do have a feeling this will be happening once in a while which makes it inconvenient and unreliable. Also makes me nervous to travel with it :/
Fidgeting with it did help in having it come on so I think it's probably the internal part of the ring light that had issues which isn't really accessible.
At first, I was considering to purchase the more expensive Diva Ring Light. When I received my Neewer Ring Light, I realized you really don't have to pay $300+ for a ring light to get a quality product. This is a quality ring light right here. With my Prime Membership, this item shipped fast, was packaged correctly and nothing was damaged. I love that it was encased in its black bag/case.
👍 I love that it's a dimmable ring light. It's really big with super bright lighting.
👍 Quality ring light for the right price. You don't have to pay $300+ for a ring light to get a quality product.
👍 Ring light was well-protected and packaged correctly in a black case inside a bigger box.
👍 Excellent lighting for my home studio.
👍 It didn't come with a diffuser cloth and light stand. I had to purchase them separately.

Update (01/09/16) I found another Neewer diffuser cloth but this one comes in a set of Red, Yellow, Blue and White Diffusers. The difference with the one I bought is that the set covers just the bulb. I will probably purchase if they have another listing just for the White diffuser as I don't need the other colors at this time.
