The Rotolight RL48 Interview Kit V2 centers on two portable LED ring lights that you can mount in various setups around your subject. Two included stands enable mounting on shoe adapters and on 1/4" studs. Using one stand, you can attach one light on your camera's shoe mount and the other on a tripod, lighting stand, pole or other compatible support accessory. The lights also slide right onto most shotgun mics.
Each light features 48 grade-A LED bulbs and delivers an 80W equivalent intensity in a 110° beam angle. You can get the lights as close to your subject as 1.5". Color temperature is fixed at 5600K daylight, and using included filters you can adjust the temperature to 6300K, 4100K and 3200K. You also get filters for diffusion, color and cosmetic effects, and for dimming brightness over a range of 1.5 aperture stops. The filters insert into holders inside the lights. In all you get 24 LEE filters, two packs of 7 that come with each light, and a pack of 10 included with the kit. The lights each power by three optional AA batteries for up to four continuous hours.
The kit also includes a belt-pouch designed with compartments and pockets to hold both lights, 6 batteries, one stand and a smart-phone.
