Recently, industry hardware powerhouse Elgato announced the launch of Elgato Ring Light. The premium LED light panel’s design provides professional quality lighting without glare. A 17-inch diameter ring shape guarantees that the Ring Light provides the best possible illumination of facial contours, eliminating pesky shadows or shine.
The device is also Wi-FI enabled, which allows for easy control and customization through a companion app available on macOS, Windows, Android, and iPhone.
The Ring Light features the same critically acclaimed flicker-free OSRAM LED technology that can be found in other Elgato products such as the Key Light and Key Light Air. The maximum brightness of 2,500 lumens can be dimmed in increments as little as 1%, allowing users to have lighting suitable for any environment. Elgato’s multi-layer diffusion technology combined with the edge-lit architecture enables content creators to work for hours without straining their eyes.
While there is an app to control Ring Light, two onboard buttons allow users to adjust brightness and colour temperature on the fly. Ring Light also pairs perfectly with other Elgato devices such as the Stream Deck. Together the two allow for seamless one-touch control over your entire A/V setup.
Included also is a telescopic pole and 3D swivel mount. This allows users to adjust the height and beam angle of Ring Light easily. There is also a camera ball mount with a 1/4 -inch screw that lets users mount cameras ideally for use with Ring Light.
