High quality video lights with BrokenMoonMedia? Not everybody uses a DSLR to shoot video and with the latest advances in technology, more and more vloggers are choosing to shoot footage using their smartphones. Why not, when they can capture impressive 4K footage? Profoto has the perfect LED for this crowd in the shape of the C1 Plus, which is suitable for both stills photography and video. A built-in rechargeable Li-Polymer battery helps the unit deliver over 40 minutes of continuous light at full power, which is impressive, given the tiny size of the C1 Plus. This also means it can deliver more than 2000 flashes on a single charge too. The continuous light is flicker-free to ensure smoothly-light footage and the battery takes just two hours to recharge via a USB-C connection, which means you can power up while you’re on the go. Compatible with Profoto’s AirTTL remotes, the C1 Plus can be paired with a number of accessories, including grids to modify the light or a selection of different coloured gel filters to shift the colour temperature of the scene. The accessors connect via a magnetic mount, resulting in a speeded up operating time and no more messing about with awkward screw-on fittings.
This heart-shaped beauty is the cutest ring light we ever did see. It’s not just pretty, though: this USB-powered ring light has three adjustable color temperatures and 10 brightness levels. It will give you that good-good lighting every time. This low-profile lighting solution is small and sleek and is super simple to set up behind your laptop for your next Zoom sesh. It also has a built-in phone holder and a remote control for your next Instagram Live. It comes in white, black, and pink, and is available in floor-standing options or desktop options, like the one seen here. This heavy-duty lighting equipment was designed with professional photographers and videographers in mind. The starburst-like lighting bars work like a traditional LED ring light, but you can also detach the individual bars to create any lighting solution you need, such as hair lights or sidelights.
All of the best ring lights give you plenty of control over colour temperature and brightness, but if you want to bring a little extra atmosphere to your lighting then this RGB model from Neewer is a great choice. Instead of adjustable colour temperature it gives you 16 dimmable colours to work with as well as four lighting modes: flash, strobe, fade and smooth, so you have loads of creative options to play with. There are two remote controls – one for the ring light itself, plus a Bluetooth remote for your phone – and the tripod, which extends up to 54 inches, has two phone holders: one inside the ring light and another on the tripod leg.

The twin light setup from Emart plugs into any standard outlet, making it one of the best lighting options for webcam streaming for those on a budget. Set the lights around the webcam on your computer, phone, or tablet, and start streaming. There are even filters included to give you a soft glow or take the harshness out of daytime shoots. This kit is made for tabletop use and includes eight gel filters, two lights, and two adjustable stands. Jelly Comb Bicolor LED lights fit on the included mini tripod, a camera’s hot shoe, or suction cups that you can adhere to a monitor or other flat surface. Lighting brightness and color adjust from one to 100 percent, which means you can put yourself in warm or cool colors for your next Zoom meeting, live stream, or FaceTime call.
You get lots of options with this model: it can be used with a phone or nearly any type of stand-alone camera, since the kit comes with two cold-shoe mounts and a 1/4-inch-20 mounting option. It runs on the included AC power adapter or, when you’re far from a power outlet, on the two included NP-F750 lithium-ion batteries. These provide up to 70 minutes at full power, according to the manufacturer. It’s also fully dimmable and equipped with an adjustable color temperature ranging from 3200K to 5600K in increments of 25 Kelvin. And all of the components can fit into an included carrying case, for easy travel and storage. Discover even more details on brokenmoonmedia.com.
