Overview of LED ring light, 33 cm, with tripod
Against the backdrop of the growing popularity of social networks, more and more gadgets are being released designed to improve the content that is posted on them. In this post, I will share my impressions of the LED ring light that I managed to acquire.
Not so long ago, when a child was asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, our country in the future could be replenished with many astronauts, firefighters and doctors. Now almost only bloggers and tik-tokers are growing.
In fact, the work consists in the correct presentation of oneself or material for the viewer in order to interest him and leave him on his page to watch the blogger. If earlier everything was quite simple, then with the growth of competition, the methods of work began to change. The viewer has become more demanding of content and more selective.
In addition to bloggers, now almost every child or young person has his own page in one or more social networks. And constantly fills it with photos or small video works.
Have you ever wondered why there are so many lighting equipment in professional photography or video shooting? It’s simple: the right light, its intensity, the angle at which it illuminates the object, affects how the viewer sees that same object. How he will feel and perceive it and whether he will be interested in it.
Since not everyone can afford expensive equipment for home use, Chinese manufacturers took care of us and came up with LED ring lights. A young “blogger” is also growing in my family, who has become in dire need of such a device.
- Where to buy?
There are thousands of such lamps on the Internet, they differ mainly in shape and material from which they are made. From this and more from additional functions, such as the number of colors, additional accessories, their price also differs. The price also depends on the impudence of the sellers.
Since my young blogger is not yet making money with a shovel, I chose a lamp from inexpensive models. Fortunately, they are now a shaft and in almost any store at least somehow connected with electronics, they can be felt, twisted and generally inspected.
In my humble opinion, they are all almost the same, but the prices vary enormously. Of course, there are direct high-quality devices, but they are not weak, and therefore I have not considered them.
Since I knew that I needed a lamp with a diameter of 33 cm, I purchased the cheapest I could find in this size.
The lamp was packaged in a cardboard box with pictures that didn’t really match what was inside. The tripod was in a separate box completely unmarked. The boxes showed with all their appearance that a football championship was taking place at the post office at the time of delivery, and instead of the ball they used my lamp. Despite the appearance, everything appeared to be intact and in working order.
The kit includes:
- Holder for your mobile phone
- Hinge that is attached between the tripod and the lamp.
It is extremely easy to assemble, in fact, there are only 4 parts that need to be twisted.
The diameter of the lamp is 33 cm. The height when folded from the floor to the center of the lamp varies from 87 cm to 220 cm.
With a tripod, you need to be very careful and careful, it feels like some parts of the structure are made almost of foil. While he was moving it, three times there was a feeling that he would simply crumple in his hands. But actually another, from the cheapest device, it was foolish to expect.
The lamp shines in three modes:
- cold light
There are ten brightness options for each mode. I took several photos in all 3 modes, in the brightest and dimmest, but I took the photos on the phone, and it is an infection, it brightens them all the time. In general, it is impossible to transmit the entire spectrum without normal photo equipment. But in fairness, it must be said that there is a rather large difference by eye.
In photographs, the difference between cold and warm light is most noticeable.
My lamp is powered via a USB connector, I chose one specifically so that it could travel around the apartment without being tied to a power outlet.
By the way, with the lamp, the store put a gift, you see, in case the main one gives oak. Will go like light in a fishing tent.
Where to buy?
You can buy them on almost any corner and in any store or at the link below.

In general, for your money is quite a good option. Month works without complaints. But it requires careful handling. Plastic clips and the same flimsy lambs do not particularly inspire confidence. I think, when they go to hell, and it will be so, it’s only a matter of time, I’ll just replace them with iron ones.
The young blogger is happy, and this is the most important thing.
My advice, if you really need such a thing, and there is no money for an expensive high-quality one, take the cheapest one, in more expensive options the tripod is a bit more powerful, but the lamp itself is the same (at least among those that I watched). When falling, both the cheap and expensive option will shake. And so the choice is yours.
