Neewer RL-12 LED 14" Ring Light Review


Back in March, when I went all in on upgrading my studio equipment.


Who am I kidding, I was using my iPhone, a desk lamp, and a set of earphones with a built in mic to record my videos!


So, let me try that again...


Back in March, when I bought actual studio equipment, I couldn't decide if I wanted a ring light or just a set of box lights for my home studio.


I went back and forth for a few days and finally decided to get them both and I'm so glad I did. (Box light review coming soon!)

My Review of the Neewer RL-12 LED 14" Ring Light

I've been using the Neewer RL-12 LED 14" Ring Light for the past 3 months and I love it!


It's easy to adjust the height of the stand, the tilt, and the amount of light output.


It's a solid piece of equipment and well constructed.


I have not used the orange filter, so I can not speak to that.


The white snap-on filter coupled with the ability to adjust both the light intensity and the angle has greatly improved the quality of my videos and my photographs!
