Maximum luminous flux is 2500 lm, and step change is 1%. The range of color temperature selection is limited to 2900 and 7000 K.
Wireless connection via Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n is used for control. The accompanying application is available for iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows. In addition, Ring Light can also be controlled manually: two buttons allow you to adjust the brightness and color temperature.
Sales of the device have already started. The luminaire costs 200 dollars. The kit includes a 44-74 cm long telescopic stand, a standard camera threaded mount (1/4″) and a power supply. To install the smartphone on this panel you will need a mount, which is purchased separately.
