Quality Cheap Cinematic lighting (Video)

Rotolight RL48-A Stealth HD LED Ringlight

Rotolights have to be one of the most useful pieces of equipment in my filmic arsenal. They are very cheap for filmic lights at only £100 per light; they consist of 48 colour accurate (white balanced LEDs). They provide you with a full set of CT, ND and diffusion gels which are very useful for various situations. They are equivalent to 50w tungsten light in terms of output. They can create warm, shadowless lighting with a pleasing ringlight effect, this is good for a close up shot of a persons face, this gives the twinkle spot in there eyes. Finally they have a range of mounting options available including hotshoe, stand, tripod and shotgun mic. They run on 3AA batteries which give you about about 4 hours battery lifeFinally, the creme de la creme is that they only weigh 200 grams. Overall these lights are very useful for portable professional lighting and filming in a studio.Here is the Product
