This is a pretty clear demonstration of the light output on the R-300 LED Ring Light when compared to the larger and heavier 600 LED light. Keep in mind a few things here: the R-300 LED Ring Light is overall a much smaller, lighter, and cheaper light than the 600 LED Panel. It is powered by standard and inexpensive Sony Batteries and can be mounted on either your camera or on a light stand without sand bags.
From what I can see, the 600 LED is more spotted and from what I’ve experienced, will give off multiple shadows due to the individual LED lights. The R-300 LED Ring Light is not only a single shadow light (due to their diffusion technique) this light also has a very nice CRI. F&V is proud to own this standar with their LED Light options.

The real sticking point here, aside from all of the details listed above, is the price of the R-300 LED Ring Light. Tough to beat!312 LED, 600 LED, comparison, DSLR, DSLR lighting, F&V, lighting, R-300 LED Ring Light
