Check Out This Affordable Ring Light For Video Or Stills

In the past a ring light/flash was a piece of gear that few photographers could actually afford. Today there are a few cheaper options including the Diva Ring Light that can be found on eBay. In the video below Olivia Tech does a quick review of the $200 unit. Now you may still be thinking that is a little steep but when you look at similar products, the price isn't too bad.

You are kind.

In my next foray, I'll be moving in an opposite direction with the hard, Arri lighting.  :)

Wow you are right Lee that is a killer shot.

Thank you, both. 

And here is more more; as a completely different look it shows the versatility of an utterly simple setup:

Falcon Eyes also sells them, pretty cool light. I have one for 5 years now, works like a charm :)

Olivia... sorry was she selling something...? I'd buy!
Seriously though, I shoot with a Gekko Tech 'Kisslight'... very pricey, but very good. As for the LED harshness... sorry not true there, I Shoot with a diffusion ring GLAM all the way!
Well Jerry Hall loves it!

OR for $50 you could build your own...

Very nice light, but at 65 watts I won't have much use for it in daylight situations. I wonder how hard it would be to create a version with higher wattage..

thats very similar to the one i use Lee. i think mine is 100 watts though. I like it :)
