09Sep DSLR LED Ring Lights
Ring lighting is used to provide nice even diffusion around a subject and if used creatively can be an interesting catchlight reflected in a subject’s eyes or hey maybe even sunglasses like in those fancy rap videos. I’m just having fun poking around trying to find some decent solutions in LED ring lights, and here’s what i’m currently looking at. Now I’m not talking about those DIY LED Ring light camping lanterns or the small LED Macro Photography Ring Lights, I’m looking for something that can really put out like a street walker, enough lighting for decent video use.
First on the post is the $99 dollar Rotolight, which you can find at B&H by clicking here. The hole in the center can be used as a mounting solution to slip over a shotgun microphone, which I personally think is a bit weird, but also has an option to mount via tripod. There’s some filters that can be used to color balance or act as a dimming solution (ND filters). Check out the video above for some additional insight.
Second on the list is some weird overseas ring light that looks pretty effective. It’s called the Kreis90, i’m guessing because it carries 90 LED’s? Problem is that it requires the use of the filter ring on your lens to mount. If you’re swapping lenses, then you’ll need some different up down step adapter rings. I couldn’t tell you how much this runs.
352 LED Ring Light with 12V input AC Adapter for Video
Third up looks like a really really nice solution via eBay, claiming an incredible 352 LED’s with Dimmable Knob. Again, not much information here except that this unit can be mounted under the camera (not the lens) or on Tripod. With a few hundred LED’s to provide more than adequate light, it looks like a good solution on or off camera. The problem with this 352 LED ring light is that it requires an external 12v battery source to be used portable, but if you’re NOT running and gunning, it looks like it comes with an outlet adapter. You can find this 352 DSLR LED Ring light by clicking here.
Check out the music video below and see some excessive use of what appears to be an LED ring light.
