Rotolight RL 48-B overview

  • 1Description

The Rotolight RL48-B LED RingLight Stealth Edition sports 48 ultra-bright Grade-A LEDs with an 80W equivalent. It can be attached onto camcorders and DSLRs for up to 4 hours of continuous 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.

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 RL 48-B reviews

    RL48-B LED RingLight Stealth Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just so-so I purchased the Ring Light specifically for low light run and gun filming situations, where I would be on my own, and quickly shooting a scene requiring walking or motion. I particularly liked the Ring Light's ability to fit over a shot gun mic. Overall, I'm not so impressed with the light, and have even thought about returning it, I don't recommend it. Here's my breakdown: Pros Light Relatively compact Ring design does allow it to easily slide over a shot gun mic Cons Not very bright--only works in the most limited lighting scenarios Event thought the light is lightweight, it will still cause a shot gun mic with a shock absorbing systems to flop to one side, nearly breaking the rubberized fasteners that compose the system Short battery life and only takes AA batteries Overpriced for what you get--this product should be about $40-50

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Thought I'd give Rotolight another chance after my RL-48A lasted just over a year with very little use when 1/2 the led's died, well saying this RL48-B Stealth has more output I bought one to try out. There is only a very slight difference in brightness between the previous model and this, it's plastic frame is flimsy and fragile and I don't expect it to last long with pro use. It is cheap by comparison to most camera mounted led lights but I guess you get what you pay for. My advice to pro shooters is to pay more and buy quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous off camera light I had the chance to experiment with this light before buying, and in so doing I was sold. It's incredible as an on-camera light (think ring light only more portable) but also as an off-camera alternative to video light. I love that it uses AA batteries so no need to recharge. I love that the light is variable in color temperature with the filters they include. I love that it's light and slim and portable. Be sure to buy the holder/handle with the light if you plan to use it on a stand or on camera!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from phenominal product at a great price I picked up a Rotolight RL48-B after seeing it on the B&H Booth at NAB and i have to say, i love it! Its very easy to use and get great results quickly, i particularly like the filter/gel system and having 4 different colour temperatures is extremely useful to me. Also, some of the other lights I own can be very heavy, so the ability to run just off 3 AA batteries for 3/4 hours is fantastic! You can't go wrong for the money, its a very useful light by itself, or as an addition to your existing kit.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much whiz and not enough bang This light is good for home use only. I tried to use it for professional interviews on the field but the light starts to flicker even with new batteries.I own an older version of this light and I thought getting the newer modelthey would've fix this issue but it is still there. The pros is that is cheap andvery quick to mount. The cons is that it flickers and that the strength doesn't go farther than a couple of feet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Light ever Square Led light just to concentrate and project a round center point of light it doesn't happen with Rotolight, also came with many great filters...... I work with the mix light filter, 'cause if you are in a party sometimes they have different kinds of light. Also is weightless and rain resistance, comes with some great accessories!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product! I was reluctant to buy this because someone commented it was flimsy. Trust me, it's not! The quality is solid... quality rubber, durable switch and metal mount. The light is bright enough for use within 15 to 20 ft and can be controlled well in regards to white balance, diffusion & power with the supplied filters. Nice set up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very handy light to have What I love about this rotolight is that you just slide it onto your on camera shotgun mic and click the on button and it gives off amazing light for any interview situation or anything else that needs extra fill lighting.
