It features intuitive analog controls and front- and rear-facing LED diplay panels for precise, repeatable results. It also incorporates a USB Type-A power port to charge your smartphone while recording, so low battery failure won't be a concern.

The BI-45W-RL ring light runs on battery or multi-voltage AC power so it's as effective in the field as it is at home or in the office. Variable color temperature adjustment from 3200 to 5600K allows your subject to be lit with the warmth of a tungsten bulb, the brilliance of bright daylight, and everything in between. Create realistic lighting or match the ambient light of an existing environment. The light is bright enough for select broadcast applications and with 0-100% adjustable brightness, it's easy to create the perfect look for your video or livestream.

The dedicated wireless remote can control all of the light's settings from up to 50' away and features a save function that recalls existing settings the next time the light is powered up.

The flex arm has a spring-loaded clamp that holds any smartphone up to 3.25" wide at the center of the ring light. For ultimate functionality, cold shoe and 1/4"-20 accessory mounts provide multiple attachment points for items like an accessory arm, small photo or video accessories, a makeup mirror, or a camera with an optional mini ball head.

The four-section light stand can be set up almost anywhere and used as a stable platform for interesting and eye-catching camera angles. It has an adjustable height from 15.7 to 58.5" so it can be used to record while you are sitting or standing. The stand weighs just 2.4 lb, making it easy to store or transport to locations.

Bright and Even Illumination
The ultrabright 1120 Lux beam casts a 360° ring of soft and flattering illumination that will enhance facial features so you'll look your best for your audience. The soft circular shape creates striking ring-shaped catchlights that will make your eyes sparkle.
Adjustable Color Temperature
The light's color temperature is adjustable from 3200 to 5600K to easily match existing ambient light. From the warmth of a tungsten bulb to bright daylight, and everything in between, this light will fill your frame with natural-looking illumination. Convenient presets are available on the remote for quickly setting cool, warm, or neutral color temperatures.
Continuous Dimming from 0-100%
A dimming knob on the rear panel and the remote control make it easy to dial in the right power level for your exposure or video. The light offers a full range of dimming, from 100% power all the way down to zero.
Flexible Smartphone Bracket
The flexible arm features a spring-loaded clamp that allows a smartphone up to 3.25" wide to be easily positioned where you need it.
Wireless Remote Control
The IR remote control fine tunes the color temperature and brightness to adjust the look while you can see yourself on a monitor or phone. The remote also has three presets for cold, warm, and neutral color temperature settings, as well as presets that instantly set the light at 100% and 50% brightness.
Silent Operation
The passive cooling system operates silently and is perfect for video applications. Whether creating a broadcast or vodcast, the microphone won't pick up any distracting noise from the light.
Runs Cool
The BI-45W-RL LED produces almost no heat, so it can be positioned as close to your subject as desired. Stay cool and comfortable, even through lengthy vlogs and interviews.
Add Accessories
Use the 1/4"-20 mount and cold-shoe mount to add accessory arms, an optional makeup mirror, an optional mini ball head to mount a point-and-shoot or DSLR camera, and other small photo and video accessories.
Battery or Plug-In Power
In the field or not near a wall outlet, the show will go on because the light runs on one readily available NP-F type battery. The included multi-voltage AC adapter allows the light to run on AC power anywhere in the world.
USB Charging Port
The light has a 5V/2A USB Type-A charging port for charging a mobile device during use.

Ring light improves game night!

By Robert

Ever since COVID, our Weekly Board Game Night was converted into Remote Weekly Board Game Night via Zoom. It was tough to come up with an appropriate lighting setup, as faces and game pieces were often dark and shadowy in the video because of lighting that was overhead and slightly behind us. We would often move a very heavy floor lamp from another room to try to improve the lighting, but it was only a minor improvement. Finally someone suggested we try a ring light. Most ring lights are small and provide harsh lighting, but the Angler Bi-Color LED Ring Light Kit (14) is the perfect solution for us. Since the kit includes a stand, we were able to situate the light well above us so that it isn't in our faces when we are playing. The temperature and brightness adjustments are great. Instead of just having a few fixed settings (like low, medium, and high), this ring light has continuous adjustments so we can set it to provide just the right lighting for our situation. Making these adjustments via the included remote control is awesome! No need to keep getting up and down to make changes. You can even save your favorite settings so that when you turn it off and turn it back on, it is set just the way you like it! Everything is quick and easy to setup and breakdown. Lots of adjustments to get the light exactly where you want it. The stand folds so compact that it easily fits in the included padded storage/travel bag. Really really happy with this addition to our Remote Weekly Board Game Night via Zoom! This is a great solution that we never would have thought of on our own.

Great mid-size ring light kit

The Angler Bi-Color 14 Ring Light Kit is a lightweight compact kit that is great for video calls or single-person content creation. It gives off a nice soft color-accurate light that you can quickly adjust power or color temperature with the built-in knobs. I really like that it can be battery powered by Sony batteries. If you are using your phone with it there is a USB port so you can charge your phone as you use it which is a nice touch. It also comes with a nice carrying case, a small light stand, and a wireless remote for easy hands-free adjustments. Overall this is a nice inexpensive ring light kit.

Nice bi-color ring light, contains everything you need

By Jim

Well made, affordable ring light and really bright for its size. This is very versatile and comes with everything you would need. I love that it is bi-color so it can be used in a room with indoor warm (3200) lighting or if there is daylight in the room, you can use it with the daylight (5600) setting. And since the color temperature adjustment is on a dial, you can set the color to anything in between also. The dimmer dial is very responsive which is nice, makes dialing in the brightness a snap. The arm for the phone feels secure and has just enough tension to put the camera where you want it to be and it will stay there. It can run on ac power out of a wall socket or use it with the NP-F batteries, which I have a bunch of and are affordable. I love having that option. The remote is a very nice touch considering this is great for a single user set-up. Just put the light where you want it and you can make your adjustments while standing in position watching the changes happen on your phone or monitor. The remote allows you to change brightness and color temperature and also has presets to make things even more easier. The kit comes with its own stand that folds up very small and fits right in the provided case. That is fantastic. I love having a case to keep everything secure and free from damage on transport. Having a case also guarantees everything you need is there, so nothing gets lost. But having a small enough case to fit the stand is just the best. I really love that. Such a great package. Overall I'm very impressed with this ring light, and love that it all fits in one case for storage and travel . [I have received this product in exchange for my honest review]

Great light & stand....remote not so great

By Larry

Light worked out perfect as did the stand. The remote only works about 40-50 percent of the time. Unfortunately the spot I need this setup in is really tight and hard to reach so it's not worth it to me to send back the WHOLE package to get a replacement remote so I'm just going to use the control knobs on the light itself which works fine.

Improve Your Looks when Zooming

By Paul

Uneven illumination degrades the appearance of many people when they ZOOM. This easy to set up and use ring light is a very effective and economical solution. I position it as an overhead light near my laptop and it is totally effective in providing uniform illumination of faces. The wireless remote is very handy and can be used to adjust intensity and color temperature. I choose the warmer tones.
