    This is a fantastic light. Some have complained about the magnetic filters, one clear and one to balance with incandescent lighting. In my opinion both filters work well - the clear to protect the LEDs and the orange to closely match incandescent lighting. If I need to adjust output color further I will obtain commercial gels and attach to the clear filter. The Sony batteries work well with this unit but I purchased the Kastar NP-F570 Battery (2-Pack) and Charger Kit which I am very happy with - they provide a long working life, usually one battery for a full days shoot. I use this unit for manual fill lighting of my architectural interior photos - perfect light solution for my work. I have not tried this unit for its intended us as a lens ring light but intend to have some close-up photo fun when I get some time. In connection with the included bracket to mount the ring light around the lens I see no real reason to complain - I works for the intended purpose on my Nikon D800 and Nikon 105 macro lens.

    The biggest complaint I've heard about this light (reviews on other sites and video reviews) is the L bracket. So, I fixed that. Granted, I shoot with a Panasonic AF100, so it's not a DSLR, so, your mileage may vary. Here's what I did - for camera mounting, I flipped the bracket around to attach to the TOP of the camera, not the bottom. I have 3 different mounting holes up there plus a shoe mount. I attached to a screw hole and locked it in with another shoe attachment I had. Now, it doesn't interfere with the tripod mounting plate on the bottom. Also, I took the huge lightstand attachment off the bracket. That's makes it better for camera mounting, as you don't have a huge adaptor there and, it's good for lightstand mounting as you won't have the L bracket hanging off the back. My Lowell stands have a 1/4inch screw hole in the top that I attached a swivel mount to, with the other end of the mount going into the base of the light. When I want to switch from camera to light, I unscrew the knob screw (it comes with the light/bracket) and switch over. Easy peasy and clean. Other than that - yes, bright....yes, light and compact. I just ordered another couple. Will be my interview lights when I travel.

    I've attached this to my Sony A7S and I can still use my camera handheld. I do 95% natural light photography but wow -- so glad I got this -- works well for just a touch of fill light. The brightness is truly, 100% adjustable, the throw is great when on full power, and it's not so heavy that I can't use it handheld on my camera by attaching it to the L-Bracket. This also fits the Nex-7 as well. ** However, as posted somewhere, I bought the thin battery pack for this light -- depending on the depth of your camera grip and size of your hand, I can see it'll be nearly impossible to grip the camera and use handheld because there won't be enough clearance for your hand when you hold the camera. I did also attach a lens hood which allows you to pull back the camera from light 'hole' to provide more clearance to use handheld with cameras that have chunky grips. But I love this -- and for the price, I'd say it's a great buy.

    I do a lot of on location magazine advertising photography and I never know what the lighting situation is going to be. I usually don't have time or room for elaborate lighting set ups with cords running every where trying to find outlets. I hate the look of flash photography as well. This was the perfect lighting solution for me. I love the size, the weight and the 2 filter options that come with the light. I can either hand hold one light or use all three on stands. I can shoot through the ring or mount it to the top of my camera as well. This is a great video lighting solution too! The fact that the lights are totally adjustable with a knob are just and added feature that you will appreciate from the start. I bought 4 Sony NP-F550 Batteries so I would always have a back-up one charged. And as far as durability goes . . . well I dropped the first one the first day I had it onto hard concrete and not a scratch. I have used them for tabletop, portrait, backlit, video, furniture, performance and micro photography. I have been pleased with the results every time. I only wish that they made a carrying case for them, but I improvised by buying a file carrying case from Staples with a handle and all three fit in there just fine.

    I have owned and used the F&V R-300 LED for close to a year now and it's my all-time favorite video light. At full power the light lasts about 40 minutes using a standard NP-F550 or about 70-80 minutes using an NP-F770. You can also plug it into for continuous power or uses an external battery pack, like an Anker 10,000mAh to get hours of full-power use out in the field. The diffusion filters are magnetic and snap on or off in a matter of 1 second. You can even stack them as each magnet snaps to the one below it. I purchased my light direct from F&V when it first came out. I paid more money for it but it included the 15mm rail mount, light stand mount, and the three diffusion filters (Tungsten, Frost, and Milk). Another place where this light excels is for lighting foregrounds for night-sky timelapse photography. Using a standard NP-F550 battery, with the dimmer switch about 3 steps up from off, this light lasted over 48 hours (I tested it in house). That blew my mind. Anytime I use a light for a 3-5 hour timelapse I always would keep my fingers crossed that the light didn't go out in the middle of the timelapse - essentially ruining the shot. This light will run for days when dimmed. You might wonder why I would use it dimmed so much, but when shooting the stars I typically have an ISO of 1600 or 3200 and an exposure time of 20 seconds. With those camera settings even the dimmer on 3 up from bottom makes this light look very bright on your foreground subject. The reason I go 3 up from the bottom is that when I go 1 or 2 the light will sometimes pulse or flicker as if it can grab on to which setting it wants to be on, but once you step up to the 3rd level or greater - the light is consistent until it goes off. LED's don't slowly dim as the battery runs down. They stay strong until the voltage isn't enough and then they just turn off. There is NOT a battery power indicator, so if you plan to use the light and battery for 6 or 7 hours of shooting - make sure you test your batteries ahead of time. I typically purchase off-brand batteries and the reliability varies with each battery. I test each of my batteries for my intended use and then label them as to how long they lasted (at full power and 3-steps from bottom). The ones that fail very early don't get used. Ring lights are often used in portraiture and fashion photography. The catch light that ring lights create really makes a person come alive. The ring light also provides it's own feathered vignette making it ideal for many types of photography.

    LED lights are notorious for producing light that often looks green to DSLR cameras. Normally, you can deal with that by using the fluorescent color temp option on your camera, but it's still not the best option in my opinion. Any outdoor light that manages to get into the room then looks purple. The F&V ring light is way better in that department. It produces very nice light without the green issues, and I plan on getting another one just because of that. Many of these LED lights also have ridiculously bad connection plates for the batteries. I have one where the battery even falls out while you're shooting, or the pins become bent, or something. These are all made in China, and unfortunately the quality just isn't there. The F&V light is far better. The battery mount is solid. It locks in properly, and there is a knob for powering up the light as well as dimming it. On a freshly charged Sony battery of normal size, I got an hour and 15 minutes of light. With all the different brands of L batteries out there, they are not all the same in their power delivery and yet the ones from Sony seem to be the best. The biggest problem with this light is the oddly designed L bracket that comes with it --- a necessary thing if you wish to mount it to your camera or on a light stand. The bracket doesn't do either job all that elegantly, and in fact prevented me from actually using the light on my Manfrotto pan head. I have the 502 video head, and it has a slide-in plate. Once the F&V light is mounted on the plate, you can no longer slide it onto the head since it hangs down way below the pan head and there's no way to slide the pan head plate into the head with the L bracket attached. I've thought about sawing off the darn light stand mount that hangs down. It also hurts to hold it when I've wanted to use the rig hand-held. It's frustrating. So, I've had to use the bracket on a separate light stand. If you use the ring light and attach it to the bottom of your camera, then you may find that the ring covers the focus controls on the lens and you will have to use auto-focus instead. This is normally fine for still shooting, but when you're shooting video your camera may not have continuous auto focus, (the Canon 60D doesn't) so you'd need at least a 70D camera to deal with this issue. The L bracket also has to be screwed to the light via a knob that has a fiber washer which quickly disappeared on one of our remote shoots. The knob and washer should have been designed so that they stay on the bracket. The bracket itself is tough and durable, but it's design is truly flawed for professional work. You can use it just fine with a standard light stand and it will do the job, but F&V needs to quickly offer an alternative to this bracket if people are also using Manfrotto heads or other designs where the plate has to slide in instead of snap on. An alternative head might be the Cartoni Focus HD head which is a much better fluid head but more expensive than the 502 Manfrotto head. The light also comes with two filters that easily attach via magnets on each side. They work great. You will also need the third filter which diffuses the light a bit more -- a milky filter which is easier on your talent's eyes, and can be purchased directly from F&V. I think we'd all pay a bit more for the light to have that filter come standard instead of having to order it separately. The light itself is well made, durable, and produces very pleasant light. I would highly recommend it, even if you have to make your own mount for it. I would prefer two mounts instead of the one mount that tries to do two things, albeit doing neither job that well.

    I have used this light in several video and film projects now, as well as photography. My favorite setup up is on a set with a bright window with natural light coming through, and then using the R-300 as a gentle fill that just places a "kiss" of soft light on the actors faces during a scene. Great for packing, batteries last quite a while and they run about $12.00 each (after market), never have had a single issue with these.

    This light works well as a ring light mounted in front of my camera. It also has a long enough throw that it works just like my 600 LED panel when put on a light stand. I was also able to turn the L-bracket around and mount my GoPro in front of it.

    Great light for fill and effects nice touch with the dimmer function and very useful as it never gets hot. The color temperature of the light might be an issue for some, but any good color grading software and compensate for that. Although it didn't have the mounting bracket for use with my cannon 5D That has to be purchased separately.

    Best thing since sliced bread, I love the convenience of not having to setup my pocketwizards and SB900s and all that jazz if I want to take a simple shot with my DSLR or even iPhone5s It makes getting great results a breeze, especially when mounted on a Gorillapod 3 and on a ballhead * Note that getting the right battery because of a certain seller.... You need a NP-F which is what is prescribed... However there are NP-FM models of batteries and THOSE will NOT work with this guy.
