The Rotolight RL48 Creative Color Kit V2 combines a Rotolight light, stand, filter kit, and belt pouch into a compact lighting solution weighing less than 1 lb.

The main feature is the Rotolight RL48-B LED RingLight Stealth Edition. It sports 48 ultra-bright Grade-A LEDs with an 80W equivalent. It can be attached onto camcorders and DSLRs for 4 hours of light without causing shadows or red eye. Weather-resistant, weighing 6 oz, and powered by 3x AA batteries, it can be set up and fully functional within 3 seconds. Batteries are not included.

Rotolight RL48-B LED RingLight Stealth Edition

Slides onto and firmly stays put on most shotgun mics. Or, with the use of a Rotolight stand (not included), it can mount onto DSLRs, camcorders, and other equipment via hot shoe or 1/4" - 20 stud.
Contains a Filter-Holder. Included with every RingLight are 3 CTO filters and 3 ND filters which adjust color to 6300K, 5600K, and 4300K and 3200K.
110° beam angle produces a soft, naturally diffuse wide beam that eliminates shadows and red eye.
Can be accurately dimmed over 1.5 stops with the use of included ND filters. A 1 stop and a .5 stop combine using two filters, one for each.
A rubberized outer coating reduces reflectivity and acoustic resonance
Can close in on a subject as close as 1.5".

Rotolight RL48-CFP Color FX Gel Filter Kit

Consists of 10 effects gel filters made by Lee Filters. Eight are Color FX Filters designed for sidelight, backlight, kicker or toplight, and two are Cosmetic Filters for skin tone enhancement.

Color Effects Filters:
020 Medium Amber - for afternoon sunlight, candlelight, and side lighting.
052 Light Lavender - for general areas and side lights, and for a basic followspot color as well as a backlight.
063 Pale Blue - cool front light wash for creating an overcast look for cold weather.
128 Bright Pink - for backlighting and side lighting; useful for musicals.
182 Light Red - for theatre and television effect lighting as well as cycloramas.
712 Bedford Blue - a smoky warm blue for skin tones.

Included with the stand is a hot shoe adapter. It screws into the stud of the stand and can then itself be attached onto anything with a hot shoe. The hot shoe adapter can rotate 360°, and the RingLight can therefore be positioned in various ways.

      Great package deal and easy to use

      By Out&About

      Comments about Rotolight RL48 Creative Color Kit V2:

      This light was highly rated and I purchased it based upon an online article of recommended lights for my purposes. So far so good. Light weight, high quality plastics. Sits firmly in the shoe. We are producing an online show and filming using iPads and iPhones. Most of our use for the light is in location shoots where we have little control of lighting. Works well with interview situations.

      Ultra versatile video/macro lighting

      By SJ

      from Buffalo, NY

      Comments about Rotolight RL48 Creative Color Kit V2:

      As bright or soft as you need it with a good amount of reach. The color kit, specifically, includes filters to achieve the mood you desire without much effort in post production. Mounting is a breeze and lends itself to many implementations. The price point is right on for the quality, yet understated once creativity begins to unlock this light's potential. Get two for the perfect, on-the-go, in-your-pocket lighting magic. Definitely happy here.

              Great addition to my JVC procamcorder, bright, convenient to use, fits perfectly over my on-cam microphone and when mounted on the included stand, slips into the hot shoe for a slightly different angle, etc. Haven't used it long enough to know how long the batteries last, but am well satisfied with the overall quality and would recommend this product.

                  Power usage is good considering only 3x AAs.
                  Light is sufficient for 2 to 2.5 meters, beyond that it is still there but weak. Nice package.

                    Rotolight was easy to mount and even easier to operate. Mounted directly to a Sony HXR-NX5U and a Canon 5D.

                    First use was a up-close and personal soccer shoot at night. Rotolight lit everything perfectly and batteries lasted plenty long!

                    Very Bright!

                    Good light, but not perfect

                      Comments about Rotolight RL48 Creative Color Kit V2:

                      PROS:
                      Takes up less space than lights that require an add-on camera battery which prevents the LCD viewfinder from opening.
                      Included filter kit is great for all kinds of lighting settings.

                      CONS:
                      No dimmer
                      No compatible with some cameras and lens hoods

                      I bought this to use with my Sony NX5U. With the camcorder's lens hood on, the Rotolight will not fit properly onto the shotgun mic. This means having to use it on the included stand. This stand does not hold a solid grip on the light and often a small amount of movement will dislodge the liht from its stand. A more solid stand to go with this light would be ideal.

                          I bought this from B&H after seeing examples of its work all over youtube. Its so light and perfectly portable with my Canon 5D. fits straight onto my hot shoe mount with ease and gives out such a lovely quality light. the pouch is useful to carry everything on my belt and the colour fx filters are good fun.
                          Ive always done photography, this is useful for some portraiture although ive recently started video and events work which it is perfect for.
                          a must have!

                          The RL 48 Kit is a Cost Effective Video Lighting approach. As a Photo Enthusiast with a portable Photo Studio, I wanted to create a portable Video Studio for use with my DSLR HD Video capability. The Kit provides low but constant light that I can use with my existing Light Stands, Umbrellas and Soft Boxes in place of my wireless flash that I use for Portraits to allow me to do Video Interviews.

                          PROS: Low cost, light balancing filters, light weight for travel, ease of use.

                          CONS: No Electronic Dimmer, (need to use ND Filters to cut the light level, effective but not convient), Not pro level of build quality (but sufficinet for Enthusiast use).

                            I bought the Rotolight because I'm frustrated with Flashes in general and I figured the Rotolight would provide more value than a high-end flash.

                            ADVANTAGES:

                            I did a photo shoot with my new Rotolight over the weekend and it was fantastic. I was able to address a number of lighting issues in the scenes and spice up what would have normally been OK lighting and made it more interesting. It's portable and easy to use, I just need to get more practice with the filters and eventually master all the different combinations.

                            DISADVANTAGES:

                            For shooting in the day, you have to have the Rotolight fairly close to see the effects, so it's not the best for fill lighting during the day. It can be a pain when switching filters but if you plan ahead this inconvenience can be minimized. For portraits, it is much better for individuals/couples as it doesn't cover a wide area with just one. Having two Rotolights may help overcome this and also help you create even more interesting lighting effects. Be sure you have an assistant or tripod/stand to easily move it where you need it to be.

                            Overall, I'm definitely happy with my purchase and look forward to future applications and photo shoots with it.

                              I got the new Stealth Rotolight to use with my Owle Bubo, and I'm thrilled to death!!!
                              It came with the light, a stand to attach it to my Owle, a carrying case and a ton of filters...it's going to be fun messing around with different color combinations!
                              I've shot a few videos, as well as some stills with it, and this light has had a dramatic effect on my photos...I'm loving it!!!
                              The only problem I'm going to have is going through all the different filters and colors...there's a lot of them.

                                I am primarily a photographer and I have been working more and more with available light and fast prime lenses. While off camera flash is handy, a good LED lightsource to boost ambient light can be less intrusive if you match the light to what's around you.

                                I picked up one of these kits to add flexibility to my kit when shooting things like food in restaurants, popping a subjects eyes when doing on the run portraits and sometimes to just help my AF out in dark situations. So far the results have been very satisfactory. I can hold my camera in one hand and the Rotolight in the other.

                                On the construction side, this little guys is built well. It won't take a serious drop, but it can be bumped around a little. It is also quite energy efficient and I haven't had any trouble getting it to outlast my shoot.

                                  It puts out a great soft light. It's very bright, they say 80W & I think w/ newer camcorders these days this will meet your lighting needs most of the time & if you need more light: buy another one. It's light, secure, easy to set up & it does the job; especially if your on the run & shooting indoor & outdoor scenes. The LEE filters are great!!!
