    In my last video, I used a light ring I made from a web site I found:
    http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-ring-light-for-your-camera/
    You use 3 rings of LEDs.
    70 mm
    90 mm
    120 mm

    By placing the LED rings inside each other, you make a real nice camera light. No shadows for close up shots.
    Each ring is made to work on a car so each runs off 12v.
    I got a 12V 3800ma rechargeable battery pack from Amazon to power it instead of what the site said. The power pack has a switch on top and a battery condition indicator on the side. I hot glued an old UV filter to the frame. The frame is actually made from a left over piece of plastic coated card stock.
    Just thought I would share this simple idea.


    Which leads into another use of the rings - another thread.

    Excellent information Dave for improving our images.

    Thank you for sharing and it really isn't so off topic as you may think.
