Ring lights provide a uniform and shadow free lighting. A diffuser (removable) for homogeneous light is included.

In order to avoid reflection, some ring lights can be used in combination with polarization filters. Brackets and diffusers are included (no. SXX3 010213, for details see bracket options).

The standard light beam angle is 12°. Custom adjustment from 0° to 40° on request.

The special RGB lights are built with high power three chips LEDs red, green, and blue, enabling the use of each color separately or in combination. White light can be achieved by setting each channel to the same intensity level. There also exists a ring light with lens thread.
