Here is a quick review on the Aputure Amaran Ring Light. I purchased this on Amazon when I was thinking of getting some sort of studio lights – I tend to become productive in the evenings and want to take lots of blog photos, but it’s always too dark! So I found this on Amazon HERE for £25ish, which is a lot cheaper than buying studio lights and much smaller – as I have no room in my university room!
This is a really compact LED lighting system that clicks onto the top of your DSLR, or around the lens (with provided lens rings). You can also use this in your hand aswell, if you don’t have a DSLR – especially as it runs on AA batteries.As you can see, the lens rings come in a wide range of sizes.The great thing about this ring light, is that it comes with several settings. You can either light up half of the ring, (one or the other) or the whole thing. You can also use this as a flash when you synchronise it with your camera! You then can adjust the brightness on the LEDs aswell.I will be posting photos that I have taken with this ring light shortly – as I am rammed with university work and sorting out my move to Australia (I will also be posting about this soon!).
But yes, I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants lighting, but has no room for it or don’t want to fork out a hefty price!
