So many people have been waiting to see example footage from F&V’s Brand NEW LED Ring Light the R-300. In the video below, we show you not only how this Ring Light performs as a 3 Point Light Setup but also what the color looks like and how the R-300 LED Ring Light compares to a common 600 LED Light.
The R-300 LED Ring Lights are daylight balanced to 5600K so we locked our cameras in at 5600K to show the truest representation of color temperature that these lights produce. None of the lights were at their full brightness in this video. We simply lit and exposed for the situation I was in- the small studio space. The R-300 LED Ring Light ships with a Frost filter, we used this on the ring light. The 600 LED Light did not come with a diffuser gel so we lit the space with the light naked. The most noticeable trait that we see is the greenish color cast that the 600 LED is giving off. The 600 is also a bit spottier. For both tests we left our cameras locked in at 5600K. ** NOTE ** The R-300 does NOT come with the Milk Diffusion filter. That is sold separately. It does come with the Frost filter which is more transparent. It lets more light through but it does not soften the light as much as the Milk Diffusion Filter.
Here are a few things to note about why the R-300 has been such a popular addition to the possibilities of lighting for many shooters. This light is powerful and inexpensive. At 1950 Lux @ 1 meter, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this light. If you saw Emm’s earlier comparison of light spread between the R-300 and other LED lights (FOUND HERE), the 312 LED Video Light and the 600 LED Light , you probably noticed the light spread and saw for yourself just how powerful this tiny ring light is. The fact that this light is both lightweight and small really appeals to mobile shooters. You can power the R-300 with inexpensive NP-F550 Batteries, a V-Mount battery or plug it into an AC outlet. Last, this isn’t just a ring light. Using the R-300 as a ring light is a bonus to just how flexible the light is. I also show you how you can use this as a key light, a fill light, a hair light or in a 3 point lighting setup.
