The LED ring is the ideal companion for lightening small and close-up subjects.
Ideal applications are macro photography and portraits as well as videography, where a continuous light source is strategic. The white light of the LED ring improves the traditional studio lighting or natural ambient light smoothing the shadows and giving more vitality to the subject. It can be easily adapted to any DSLR camera attached to the flash socket or fixed to the tripod screw.
Most of the light rings available on the market are more expensive than this device, but the worst thing is that those models are flash rings, not lights. When shooting portraits or macro photography a ring light can smooth the subject shadows with a lighting effect that is unique.
Continuous ring light sources are also available with round neon lamps or bigger led rings; unfortunately their use is restricted to indoor or photographic studio as they need 220V AC power plug; in past I have used one of these tools experiencing the portability limitation in a lot of situations.
This is the reason I made the portable continuous light LED ring for DSLR cameras. Based on a 100 mm diameter, 24 LEDs ring PCB this small device can be adapted to a wide number of cameras and lenses; its reduced size makes the device easy to carry out when shooting outdoor, making reportage etc.
It is battery powered: With 12 AA rechargeable batteries it can work everywhere for a long period. The best performances are reached with 2200 / 2800 mA/h batteries.
Variable light intensity: The dimmer can regulate the light intensity for the better exposure
Lightweight: It is lightweight to be part of your every day photography toolset
Highly portable: The three parts LED ring are easy to fit in your camera bag and can be assembled in a minute ready for use
The plastic parts are 3D printed and CNC machined with robust PLA filament and Perspex acrylic components. The PCB is machined and electrically tested before shipping.
